Roy and Rohit Roy - the two names synonymous with success when it comes
to television. Handsome, sexy and gorgeous, both have carved a niche
and have a huge fan base. And they will now share the same platform.
While the elder brother Ronit would be trying out his luck shaking his
leg as a contestant, Rohit would hold centre stage with the mike as the
host in the music reality show Jhalak Dhikla Ja.
Would Rohit feel partial towards his brother while seeing him perform? ‘ I don’t think Rohit can be partial there,’ smiles Ronit. ‘ He will have to treat all the contestants the same way.’
Rohit has no such inhibitions.
Of course it’s natural that I will feel a bit biased towards Ronit.
Everyone is allowed to have a favourite, mine happens to be Ronit. He
is a fabulous dancer, and even if he was not my brother, I would have
supported him just because of his dancing,’
Rohit admits in his usual guileless manner.
Will it be a family gathering of sorts? ‘ Yes, because I get so less time to spend with Rohit,
’ affirms Ronit. ’It would be lovely to have some time together with him’.
‘Of course,’ enthuses the younger brother. ‘ I would definitely be there cheering for him when I am not hosting’.
The love and affection is evident in their voice as they speak of each other. ‘ Rohit is a very kind man, and a generous brother,’ reveals the usually reticent Ronit, the love in his voice unmistakable. ‘ I am sure he will be a terrific host.’
‘Ronit is more like a father to me, and I am really scared of him,’
confides the ever effervescent Roy junior, his words in direct contrast
to the pride evident whenever he speaks of his dashing older brother. ‘I really hope he wins the competition. ‘
All the Ronit Roy fans hope so too. No matter who wins the
competition, it sure is a win win situation for the Roy brothers fans
out their who will now get more than a Jhalak of their favourite stars.
