Ac­tor Karan Wahi, (right) who is go­ing great guns in an­chor­ing re­al­ity shows, ac­cepts that though there is com­pe­ti­tion, he is in a safe zone.

“The good part is that I’m good friends with all other hosts on the small screen. We don’t have any com­pe­ti­tion. In fact, we learn a lot from each other. Luck­ily, we all have dif­fer­ent styles of host­ing and we all have work,” he says.

Wahi, who holds ac­toran­chor Man­ish Paul in high re­gard, says,“Man­ish was the first one in the in­dus­try to have bro­ken the bar­rier. He came up with a unique style of pre­sent­ing. And he is also the first one to suc­ceed in the in­dus­try. Rithvik (Dhan­jani) and I were in Jha­lak Dikhla Ja and I have closely watched him. Be­cause we have seen Man­ish’s style, we are not like him and we should not be like him be­cause ev­ery one of us is ex­pected to be dif­fer­ent.

Wahi, who has hosted tele­vi­sion shows such as Nach Baliye 5, Dance In­dia Dance, is now an­chor­ing the ninth sea­son of In­dian Idol. He says, “My re­spon­si­bil­ity is to cre­ate the con­tent. An an­chor is like the driver of the show who cre­ates a per­fect bal­ance among the au­di­ence, the judges and the con­tes­tants. I’ve seen con­tes­tants who are star-struck in the pres­ence of judges and me­dia glare. I al­ways try to break that ice and make the con­tes­tants feel com­fort­able amid so much at­ten­tion. I also see that I do not cross line with any par­tic­i­pant.”
