MUMBAI: Bhojpuri movies’ superstar Manoj Tiwari is all set to make his television debut as host on the upcoming mega reality show – Chak De Bachche on 9X. Accompanying him on the show as co-host will be the beautiful and versatile actress, Roshni Chopra.
INX Media founder and CEO Indrani Mukerjea said, "I am very pleased to announce that superstar Manoj Tiwari will be hosting the mega dance and music show Chak De Bachche along with the talented and beautiful Roshni Chopra. Chak De Bachche will showcase exciting young talent from across the country. This bi-weekly show conceived and directed by Gajendrra Siingh, will air on the weekend, and will put the spotlight on the best talent among the 8 to 14 age group."
Tiwari said, "I am absolutely delighted to be associated with 9X and its exhilarating new song and dance musical show Chak De Bachche. It’s the first time I will host a TV show, and I am thrilled by the concept and the scale—this sounds like a whole lot of fun and excitement!"
Chopra added, "I am really excited to be a part of Chak De Bachche as the show is unlike all the others on the bandwagon. On television today, we have shows which judge either the dancing or singing talent of kids. However Chak De Bachche will be a unique blend of singing as well as dancing. So, this show will be a one-of- its- kind and great fun because of the kids—a total roller-coaster ride! Chak De Bachche will be a trip down memory lane for me, taking me back to my childhood days and I am eagerly looking forward to it."
Siingh, whose Saibaba Telefilms will produce Chak De Bachche, said, "Both Manoj Tiwari and Roshni Chopra were the perfect choice to host the show. They will connect well not only with the audience, but also with the kids taking part, thereby making this show a great success.
