I miss Mona Singh’s chutzpah as co-host: Rohit RoyMay 4th, 2009 - 8:54 am ICT by IANS
New Delhi, May 4 (IANS) If actor and anchor Rohit Roy had his way, TV actress Mona Singh would have been co-hosting the ongoing season of “Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa” like they did last year because the actor feels she has the “chutzpah” that very few in the industry can match.
“I have to admit that I miss Mona. With her I had developed a natural and easy chemistry. I’m very fond of the way she is - I like her for her chutzpah … not many people can be like her. And people liked watching the two of us together,” Rohit told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
Together, Rohit and Mona used to set the stage on fire with their lively anchoring and inimitable jokes in the last season of “Jhalak…”.
“I used to call her ‘Chaddha saab’ and no one knew why I called her that - still it was fun. And our combination - me as the supposedly classy and suave host against the loud Punjabi girl - it was great,” he recalled.
But the actor-filmmaker is quite sure he’ll create a “good chemistry” with his current co-host, actress Shweta Tiwari, too. Shweta became a household name after featuring as Prerna in the hit soap “Kasautii Zindagii Kay”.
“I don’t expect her to adjust with me - I always try and adjust with the other person and for now I think I’m doing pretty well. And we will be able to create some magic,” he said.
Rohit was roped in midway to host the third season of the dance show. He replaced actor Shiv Pandit.
Rohit refused to reveal the reason why he didn’t join the show in the beginning but said he enjoys hosting it so much that he is ready to be the anchor as many times as the producers would offer him to do so.
“I really enjoy hosting ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ and if I am offered it again, I will surely do it,” he said.
