With the new season of dancing reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 8 is ready to hit the small screens, we got a chance and interviewed the much associated actor cum host Manish Paul about this new season, reloaded judges and much more...
Manish has been the life of this show, so let's have a look on what he has to say about this upcoming season...
Here is what he says:
You are the only host this time on Jhalak, do you feel burdened?
Of course there will be a lot of burden on me as this is a very big show with so many contestants. But with the reloaded judges I believe my load will be shared as they are so popular and talented and especially with Shahid Kapoor around there is young energy flowing on the stage. So I will be the same as always and will keep doing masti.
Since, Madhuri Dixit is not a part of the show this time, what are you going to miss the most about her?
She is my Pallu prem. I will really miss her and her Pallu on Jhalak. This season will truly be incomplete without the Bollywood diva. I adore her and love her as she has that enchanting aura.
Well your flirting tendency is quite notable on the show, so with the new name on the judging panel i.e. Lauren, can the viewers expect to see you flirting with her this time?
Totally, I consider flirting as my birth right. But yes only if it is taken positively in fact the girls don't mind me flirting with them so why should I give it a thought. And with Lauren definitely I keep teasing her and in fact off lately she has learned very good Hindi so I keep troubling her by giving new words and asking her to guess those words.
Okay, so with the new bunch of contestants, how is your bonding going on?
It is going great. All of them have become so good friends be it Ashish Chowdhry, Kavita Kaushik, Vivian Dsena or others. I can't name a single person with whom I didn't have a conversation. I keep having a lot of fun with them and the most important thing is all are so sporty that I don't have to think twice before talking to them. I know that they are celebrities so accordingly we behave, so at end I would sum up by saying that I share a healthy bond and it's fun being with them.
With this new season of Jhalak, how your relationship with Karan Johar will be seen?
This time our relationship will be a reloaded one. The viewers have already liked our nok-jhok a lot so this time they will get to see more of entertaining portion compared to the previous one.
What would you say to your loyal fans of Jhalak, those who root for you every season?
All my fans have given me so much of love via Jhalak. I am associated with Jhalak since season 5. This is the fourth season I am hosting and all these could happen only because of these lovable fans that call me for every season. I would request them to keep showering their love so that I can keep entertaining them every time possible.
It's sheer a wait and watch game as to how Manish will entertain the viewers of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa this time!
