Actor-comedian Kiku Sharda was here on Monday to promote a radio jockey hunt for children ahead of Children’s Day, which falls Friday.
Kiku, popular for his stint as Palak on “Comedy Nights With Kapil”, is the celebrity judge for Big FM’s BIG Junior RJ talent hunt show.
The second season of the hunt started Nov 2 to identify kids between the age group of 6 to 14 years and those with a talent for radio jockeying.
Kiku, who has two sons with wife Priyanka, said events of this kind can help the younger generation to enhance their will power and showcase their talent.
“I think it’s a fantastic effort. They are providing a platform to the younger generations to enhance their confidence and will power.”
“Being a father myself, I think the current generation is smarter and sharper. If during their early years, kids are getting such a platform to explore their talent, it’s a great job being done,” Kiku told IANS.
The 39-year-old was also seen dancing with the kids in his trademark style from “Comedy Nights…”
During the event, Kiku, who donned a blue t-shirt and denims with canvas shoes, interacted with the kids, and even gave a shot at arm-wrestling.
The winner of the talent hunt show, to be announced on Nov 20 will get a chance to join Kiku in his TV show “Akbar Birbal”.
