B’wood praises Hrithik


Hrithik Roshan was born with a pair of dancing shoes on. Easily one of the best hotsteppers in Bollywood, the trade and junta are of the opinion that when Duggu dances you stand transfixed. And so it came as no surprise when the superstar was recently judged Best Host for his non-fiction show Just Dance. The show opened to a good TRP of 4.7 and made Saturday night television viewing a compulsion. And in a new research called Characters India Loves, Hrithik won hands down. Sailesh Kapoor, the CEO of Ormax Media, the agency who conducted the research said, “What works for Hrithik is the immense trust viewers have in his ability as a dancer. When it comes to dance, no other star comes close.” Hrithik’s best buddy Shah Rukh Khan feels that way too. Says he, “Duggu was wary of hosting the show initially, but he’s done such a fantastic job of it. I was on the show for about 20 minutes recently and I could feel the positive energy he infused into it. Duggu is unsurpassable as a dancer.’’ Filmmaker and TV host Karan Johar adds, “Hrithik has an extremely charming demeanour on television. His connection with the participants is absolutely endearing. He has emerged as one of the most popular hosts on Indian television with this show.” As for Sanjay Dutt, he concedes, “It is dogged determination and hard work that have made Duggu scale new heights.’’
