RJ Mantra, who was last seen grooving on the dance floor of popular celebrity dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa Season 6, will be seen in a different avatar this time. He will be seen hosting the reality show India's Got Talent 5 on Colors.  

Here is RJ Mantra who speaks about hosting the show, coming across some of the talented people across the country and much more...

It's amazing to see such talented people on this stage - We all are doing lots of masti on the sets and we have got to do everything on this show like putting fire on ourselves, diving into the water, climbing to the mountains and doing stunt without harness at a great height, what else anyone could ask for? We have shot for an underwater sequence and the kind of talent that we have come across through this show is really praise worthy as it has come from all the corners of India and it is for those people who were not being noticed yet, it's amazing to see such talented people on this stage. With such  great talents it makes us wonder that our country has so much to offer and I hope that there should be more shows like India's Got Talent around.

I am the voice of people - Bharti Singh and I being a part of the show is itself a fun element added to the show as we both come from a similar background. We are opposite to each other on the show as much as we are alike. Bharti is much involved in fun and masti while I am little opposite to her. I take care of the fact that I am not only an anchor but I am the voice of India because the judges are judging the contestants and we form a very good bond with the participants who are participating in the show and they know that I am also one among them who has come from a small city like them and have reached here after doing lots of hard work.

Fun element will be there in the show for sure but it's not a comedy show so not much of concentration will be given to comedy. It's going to depend on the situation as when to support the contestants and when to add some fun element in the show. I have even fought for someone when needed so I am the voice for my people.

Television is flooded with singing and dancing reality shows - It's out of the world because I have completely concentrated on this. I even share my opinion whenever I feel like giving. Once I had said on the stage that it's the responsibility of our industry that we should project India in a good way. Television is flooded with singing and dancing reality shows and the generation thinks that singing and dancing talents are being given utmost importance in India. Even parents want their kids to do well in singing and dancing even if they have any other hidden talent in them. I have been concentrating more on the talents who are non- singers and non- dancers. If it won't be done then we will spoil a generation.

I used to think that one day a show like Britain's Got Talent will come to India - When I was studying in England, there I used to be a part of Britain's Got Talent in a way. I used to watch their shoot while coming from school so I used to think that one day, this show will come to India. So, I was very happy to see the show coming to India in a desi avatar and now I am a part of the show too.

I have involved myself in every talent - I have involved myself in every talent coming on the stage. I tried doing many things; I passed in some talents whereas I failed in some. People who have extra-ordinary talent in them have made me realize that I can even do this. I tried doing pole dance and I did it well.

I am an actor having comedy is a part of it - My movie Dil Patang is releasing this year, which is my debut film as a solo lead and I have signed another film as a solo lead, which is a horror film and a semi Hollywood project. People think me as a comedian but I am an actor and comedy is a part of it. My films which are releasing shortly are serious and good movies.   

Well, we wish all the best to RJ Mantra for his hosting in the show India's Got Talent 5.
