The most popular contestant of Big Boss Rahul Mahajan is now seen on Colors channel as a judge of a reality show. He was also approached to do Sony's popular dance based reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa but he did not wanted to be a participant again and instead opted to judge a kids comedy show. "I love kids and couldn't think of refusing a show where kids were a major part of it. Chotte Miyan is a combination of kids and humour," shares the politician turned entertainer.
Rahul seems to having a great fun on the sets on Chotte Miyan amid the kids, "Kids are always a fun to be with. From the very first day they started pulling my leg and asked me all sorts of personal questions. They fed me with their own hands and didn't want to leave me so right from the beginning I was on their mercy." The controversial figure didn't work on any prior preparations before taking on the chair of a judge, "There was not much preparation required for a comedy show. All you have to do is laugh when you feel like. The way the children perform is much more than what children of their age can do. It's very surprising." It seems the kids are also gelling well with Rahul and Rahul is cherishing every second spent with the kids. "Every moment spent with these children is memorable.
But I can remember one special one when a child after finishing his act started laughing like me which was very hilarious," laughs out Rahul. Bigg Boss has made Rahul get recognized amongst the kids also and the Chotte Miya's are bouncing at Rahul with different types of queries. "To my surprise, they have followed each and every episode of Big Boss. I came to know this when they started asking me all sorts of questions, starting from simple ones first and then personal ones," utters Rahul Mahajan. Known for giving nicknames to his fellow participants in Bigg Boss, this time around the kids call him with various nicknames. "This time it's not me, but the kids are the ones who have given me nicknames. They were also aware of the names that I gave my housemates.
Meanwhile Rahul maybe judging the children's comedy acts but when it comes to Bollywood whom would he judge to be a good comedian? "Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) is the best of all and then Salman, Aamir and Akshay are excellent comedians too," speaks up Rahul. Apart from being associated with entertainment industry and politics, Rahul also has plans to become a film maker, "Entertainment is definitely my full fledged profession as of now. I'm working for a few reality shows and am planning to get into films as a producer. Politics is something that you would like to do for your country and there is a vast difference in entertainment and politics.
