After presenting DID, Zor Ka Jhatka and then Comedy Circus 3 - Teen Ka Tadka, this Jab We Met girl is now all set to add another feather to her hosting cap. She will co-host next season of Bournvita quiz contest now re christened as Cadbury Quiz Contest along with famous quiz master, Derek o Brien. The very popular inter school quiz contest which earlier aired on Zee TV and Sony will now air on Colors from 14th August at 10.30 am, as part of the channel's efforts to open up its Sunday morning programming.
When contacted Saumya says, "I have always liked General Knowledge competitions and will use this opportunity to further increase my vocabulary".
Her role will be to ask the questions in Hindi as a part of the move to broad base the appeal of the show.
Talking about her look in the show, Saumya says, "My costumes have been designed by a Kolkata designer. It will be a very chic and dignified indo western look, there will be no bling".
She further admitted that working with kids will be a challenge, "What works in my favour is that these kids are geeks and nerds. So it will be fun working with them".
Saumya who had left Comedy Circus informs us that the production house had again approached her to fill in Reshmi Ghosh's shoes, who was dropped due to poor performance, "But I declined the offer as I was out of town".
Saumya says as of now she is contracted to do only 14 episodes of Cadbury Quiz Contest, "I don't believe in locking myself for long periods as that limits my other opportunities. I would love to go back to Zee to host DID, but nothing has been finalized as of yet. I am keeping my fingers
crossed on Bollywood offers too".
We wish Saumya all the very best for her next venture a host..
