Vijender, Vidya launch ‘Dadagiri 4′ (Lead)January 13th, 2011 - 12:39 am ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Jan 12 (IANS) Boxing champion Vijender Singh and actress Vidya Malvade of “Chak De! India” fame Wednesday launched the fourth edition of reality TV show “Dadagiri”, which will go on air Saturday on UTV Bindaas.The show, which pits girls against boys and tests not only physical but mental agility of the contestants as well, will have seven participants in each team.
Vijender, who is preparing for the boxing World Championship to be held in Moscow and the Olympics 2012, was here to boost the morale of the participants.
“The show is very youthful and full of energy which somehow is reflected in my personality also. I found the show interesting and could connect with it because the profession that I am in also demands a lot of ‘dadagiri’ and naturally it is in my genes also. At times, I do practice it out of the ring as well,” Vijender told reporters at the show’s launch.
Vidya, who led the hockey team as captain in “Chak De! India” and participated in “Fear Factor-Khatron Ke Khiladi”, said she was quite adventurous at heart.
“For me, adventure is fun and I like to engage myself in it. I’m sure, girls will beat the boys. I would not want any kind of violence or abusive language to be used. Battle doesn’t mean respect is to be kept on stake. I would want the boys to respect the women on the show,” Vidya told IANS.
The fourth season of the show will feature singer-turned-actor Amit Tandon as the host along with Vishal Bhosle as the dada of the show and Shaurya Chauhan as the dadi.
