Rahul Vaidya, the Anchor of Jjhoom India, on the Hot Seat...

The Singer in Rahul Vaidya has taken a back seat, while the Anchor has now come to the forefront in Sahara One's Singer-Actor formatted reality show, Jjhoom India. Here is Rahul's Quick Bytes on Jjhoom.

Your thoughts on being the anchor of Jjhoom India: Damn good. On the other hand, it has been hectic; even after the shoot, I am the last one to go out, because I need to give my retakes and related stuff. One good thing is that, I am not at the receiving end here, I am the one hosting the show and declaring the results. I am not the tension taking body; I am the tension giving body.

Your first reaction on getting to know that you will be anchoring Jjhoom: I was happy, nervous and excited.

Jjhoom India to you is: Very interesting. Overall, it is a totally unique concept where professional singers and actors share the same platform.

USP of the show, according to you: Has to be the elimination pattern. The Top 3 Jodis will be selected on the basis of 50-50, coming from both Judges and Junta. Now, these top 3 jodis will choose the 4th Jodi to be safe, the 4th will choose the 5th and so on.. To me, this is the best part of the reality show.

Any hard feelings of not being a singer here: Yes and No. While anchoring, I don’t get that feeling, but when I see the contestants rehearse, I really feel the pinch to sing with them.

Music to you is: The most beautiful thing to me, it means a lot.

Your favorite Singing Mentor: Sudesh Bhonsle ji and Suresh Wadkar ji.

The best singer among the actors, according to you: Apara Mehta ji and Shekar Suman.

The actor who you think should improve, in singing: Shama Sikander

A memorable incident on sets of Jjhoom: Aparaji while rehearsing for her ‘Beedi Jalaile’ number was concerned about a certain line. So I rehearsed with her, and then she got comfortable with it.

The song that tops your favorite play list now: Ankhon Main Teri from Om Shanti Om

Apart from Jjhoom, you are currently working on: I have sung recently for Rakesh Roshan’s Crazy 4, am working on my album that is tentatively titled ‘Mere Moula’, have sung few Bhojpuri, Nepali and Marathi songs.
