Aditya Narayan to stop hosting TV shows in 2022: “By the time I’m done, I’ll probably be a father”
Aditya Narayan, who currently hosts the Indian Idol 12 reality show, has revealed that he will no longer be considered a host on Indian TV after 2022 because “it’s time to do bigger things.” He added that by the time he ends his stay as a host, he “will probably be a father”. He also admitted that the television industry had enabled him to “build a house in Mumbai, own a car and have a good life.”
Speaking to a major daily, Aditya Narayan said: â2022 will be my last year as a host on Indian TV. I won’t be hosting any more after that. It’s time to do bigger things. I am bound by previous commitments, which I will complete in the coming months … I will take a break from television next year. It feels good to do multiple things at once, but it’s also exhausting. As grateful as I am to Indian TV for being my cocoon for the past 15 years, it’s time to move on. “
âI was a teenager when I started animating on the small screen, and by the end of next year I’ll probably be a dad (smiles). The TV industry has given me a lot: name , fame and success. It allowed me to build a house in Mumbai, own a car and have a good life. It is not that I will give up television, but I will do something else like participate in a game show or judge one. But my time as a host is coming to an end, âhe added.
Aditya started as the host of the sung reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge in 2007. On Indian Idol, he was the host for two seasons: Indian Idol 11 and Indian Idol 12.
Recently, Aditya made headlines when he defended Indian Idol 12 after singer Amit Kumar criticized a Kishore Kumar tribute episode. Amit had said he followed the creators’ instructions to praise the contestants, regardless of his opinion.
