After successfully completing their first reality show "Biggest Loser Jeetega", SaharaOne is now ready with their next reality show "Jjhoom India".
In this show, soap stars will be coached by singing stars to sing and
perform on stage, in front of a jury and live audience. Each performance
will be a duet where these soap stars will perform alongside their
mentors - the singing stars. We here come with a chit chat with one of
the Jodi's – Vinod Rathod and Roshni Chopra.
Read on to catch an exclusive interview with the one of the jodis of Sahara's Jjhoom India.
What made you join this role?
is a unique concept. It's the first singing reality show for the stars
and celebrities. This gives me a chance to explore my talent as a
singer. My family always told me that I have a gift for music, and now
is my chance to find out whether I really have that gift or not.
What are you looking forward in the reality show?
am looking forward to interacting with both the judges, especially
Shabana Azmi, as I am a great fan of hers, though I am very scared of
Mahesh Bhatt ji. Also, this show is going to help me shed a lot of
inhibitions. As an actress, I have not really needed to open up as such
as a person, and I am very scared of doing certain things, like singing
in front of a live audience. Moreover I would also like to show the
people the real Roshni. So far they associate me only with Pia.
One comment about your partner
is a very positive and an encouraging person. He is very busy, so does
not get much time to rehearse, but whenever he gets time, he makes up
for it. He takes away all the nervousness and fear.
Have you had any good/bad/funny experience when it came to singing?
had some crazy experiences right before the start of the show. I was
away in Singapore for Zee Carnival, so did not get enough time to
practice. I came back on the day of the shoot, and when I started
rehearsing, I sounded so besura that I freaked out. I went into my van
and panicked. Eventually though, I calmed down, practiced, practiced
and practiced, and did not do too badly. I hope the audience accepts
and loves me, and votes for us.
What made you decide to take part in this show?
is a singing show, but you see with a difference. In this show, I am
just singing, but making someone else sing along with me. And that is a
fantastic new concept for me. Also, we have performances like
dancing which is an added attraction for me. Now I get a chance
to prove another aspect of my talent.
What about your partner?
have got a fantastic partner with me – Roshni Chopra. She is you know,
like a born singer. When I heard her for the time the only thought that
came to my mind was – We will make a really good compatible Jodi. And
see now with Gods grace we are the Jodi number one this week in the
So how does it feels being at number one?
great!! But now I have to make sure to take care of this number
position. Now I have to try to maintain this position. And that means
now have to work really hard.
What do you feel personally about the show?
show is very different from other musical reality shows. Most of them
are like talent hunting shows. Here it is not just music but also
performance that will matter. The chemistry needs to be perfect between
the Jodi's. That makes a nice combination.
are sure viewers would be waiting anxiously to watch this unique show,
with a completely new concept and such popular stars as Roshni and Vinod Rathod as participants. We wish them the best and hope they maintain the number one positions.
For all the action from Jjhoom India, stay tuned every Friday and Saturday at 9PM on Sahara One.
