VJ Andy has hosted reality shows as well as participated in a few, like Big Boss and celebrity dance show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 7. However, he says that he prefers to be referred to as a 'host' over an 'entertainer'.
"I have hosted shows like Get Gorgeous and Dare To Date in the past and would love to host a talk show if given the opportunity because I simply love to interact with people. If anyone asks me, I'll say I'm a host, a presenter. That's my job! Being a TV personality comes next," Andy said with pride.
"I started learning Kathak when I was in sixth grade, and contemporary dance during my college days. But that was 12 years ago! Coming back to fitness and shape is really tough for me. Plus, the injury that I had years back, scares me. Hence, I'm being careful at the same time. It's been over a month, since I'm practicing. I have become quite vigorous and intense." said the VJ.
Andy has also gone on record to say that Kathak and Madhuri Dixit are the main reasons for him joining the show. "Jhalak...happened because I wanted to connect with the audiences on a different level than I have done in the past. Through dance, the people will be able to see me in a different light."
Andy is now all set to set the Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 7 stage on fire. "I'm someone who believes in the power of mind. Im being positive, and I'm sure I'll go forward in the show. Since the kind of dance forms that Jhalak... has require flexibility, I warm up first when I come to the studio. I had a problem in the beginning with the practice hours. I want to spend as much time as I can practicing." said Andy.
He also expressed his insecurities, saying, "The competition is very tough. I have to live upto the expectations. Bhavini is teaching some techniques and is trying her level best to make me strong. Plus, there are a lot of technicalities that are difficult to do in a room, so we'll be practicing at the sets also."
Actress Madhuri Dixit, filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer-director Remo D'Souza are on the judges' panel for the new season, while TV actress Drashti Dhami, who won the dance show's last season, and Bollywood actor Ranvir Shorey are hosting it.
