India's Best Dancer 2: Host Maniesh Paul Says He Wants To Learn Belly Dancing
Maniesh Paul is one of the most popular and loved hosts of the nation. He has taken over the mantle from Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbaachiya as host of India's Best Dancer, and is all set to anchor the second season. He was recently seen at the India’s Best Dancer 2 event which was held at Le Meridien Hotel, New Delhi. Four contestants - Akash Tambedkar, Varun Dagar, Mohana Srivastava and Muskaan Singh - also accompanied him at the event.

Speaking about the show and its competition, Mainesh Paul told IANS, "The makers wanted to do something better so they called me as a host (laughs)," adding, "the contestants are really brilliant and we shoot during the time of Covid 19 with all restrictions but still I enjoyed it a lot."


The show will be judged by Malaika Arora, Geeta Kapur and Terence Lewis. They will be called E.N.T. specialists which refers to Entertainment, Newness and Technique. While Malaika will assess the ‘Entertainment' quotient in each act, Geeta will look for ‘Newness' in the moves and Terence will account for perfection in the ‘Technique'.

Maniesh pointed out that the judging panel is new for him. Although, he has previously worked with them; but on separate shows. Maniesh also pointed out that he never got an opportunity to be with all of them in the same show.

The 40-year-old actor and host spoke at great length about hosting the dance reality show for the first time. "The expectation of the audience is more and the contestants are stronger than I thought. Moreover, I came across new dance styles. Like I must say belly dancing is so beautiful and I would love to learn it."


Maniesh Paul said he would try his best to entertain the audience in a new way and is prepared for the hard work.

'India's Best Dancer' will air from October 16, every Sat-Sun at 8 pm on Sony TV.
