Following our report about Sidharth Shukla being approached to step into Nakuul Mehta's shoes to host 'India's Got Talent', we have now been informed that the actor will start shooting for it today.
Says Sidharth, "I will not ape anyone and will be myself in the show. I think I share this uncanny bond with the channel, where I'm offered existing shows and I hope this one goes as well as the previous one ('Balika Vadhu')."
Contrary to his last outing as an anchor on TV, where he hosted 'Savdhaan India', a serious show, this one's fun and light. He says, "Hosting in front of an audience and interacting with the judges and the participants is a different ball game altogether. It is tough and I am a little nervous."
Interestingly, the actor had performed a magic trick on the same show some time back.
