We’re thrilled to have Karan on the show and I’m certain that he will bring his own brand of entertainment to his role as judge.”


Johar added, “It’s great to be back on television, albeit in a new avatar. It’s something I haven’t done before and I’m really looking forward to it. A word of advice to the eight contestants – I’m looking to be entertained and delighted with every performance, so give me all that you’ve got!”
