NDTV Imagine's upcoming sequel to Rakhi Ka Swayamwar based on Rahul Mahajan's search for his ideal girl, appropriately titled 'Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega', breaks the original show's record even before it's launched!
According to our source, "Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega has received 16755 entries in just 25 days! So that's an average of around 670 entries per day. The entries have arrived through phone, email, SMS and even personal deliveries to the NDTV Imagine office in Mumbai. The applicants are an eclectic group. The girls come from diverse fields such as medicine, teaching, engineering, art and some are even students!"
Adds the source, "New Delhi tops the list with 5063 entries whereas Mumbai stands second with 4188 entries. Entries have come in from various other cities including Kolkata, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Nagpur, and Ahmedabad. NRIs too are not far behind with numerous enties pouring in from Dubai, London and USA. The contestants mostly belong within the age group of 22 to 26 years."
Rahul is obviously taken aback but also elated with the response. He says, "I am happy with the response and I'm looking forward to finding my life partner with whom I can begin a new journey."
Wacht out for Swayamvar - Season 2, Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaayega scheduled to launch soon on NDTV Imagine.
