MANIESH PAUL TURNS JUDGE

HT Cafe - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Maniesh Paul has proved to be a pop­u­lar host on tele­vi­sion shows, thanks to his witty one-lin­ers, jokes and screen pres­ence. He has hosted a num­ber of re­al­ity tele­vi­sion shows over the years, but it ap­pears he’s go­ing to hand over the mic to some­one else for a while. Ac­cord­ing to a source, Maniesh — known for host­ing awards shows in In­dia and abroad — has been ap­proached by a new TV chan­nel to judge a re­al­ity show.

A source says, “Since Maniesh is one of the best when it comes to host­ing, he was ap­proached by a pro­duc­tion house to judge his own tele­vi­sion show, which will be a tal­ent hunt for hosts. Con­tes­tants will vie for the best host tro­phy and prove their tal­ent on stage. As it is an in­ter­est­ing and never-been-done be­fore con­cept in In­dia, Maniesh agreed to do it.”

Maniesh says, “Yes, I’ve been ap­proached for a re­al­ity show and I liked the con­cept. An of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment will be made soon.”
