His power-packed dance performances across special episodes of Zee TV's fiction shows and the annual awards ceremony 'Zee Rishtey Awards' as also his successful stint on a dance reality show have earned him the status of a television heartthrob.
Ragini shot to fame with her winsome smile and her confident, outspoken roles across a host of television shows. '
Her infectious energy as the host of reality shows and her own stints as a contestant across singing and dance reality shows made her an instant hit at the dinner table across Indian households.
Niece to Bollywood's comedy king Govinda, Ragini is an entertainer no less.
About taking on the show, Ragini said, "After my stint on Star Ya Rockstar last year where I was given a platform to showcase the singer within me, I am back for a second innings on Zee TV -This time as the host of a show that's bound to be really high on its cuteness quotient."
"We're talking about kids here ... and those with a flair for drama at that ... you can only imagine the amount of fun we will have through the making of this show. The show presents a win-win situation for me ... I just love kids.
"The kind of talent we have seen so far is overwhelming ... they're such cute kids and they talk so much especially when they speak about their parents... their innocence is adorable and is bound to tug at one's heartstrings!" she said.
Rithvik said, "My current role on Zee TV's Pavitra Rishta has been widely appreciated and the show remains one of the top rated shows on the channel. When they approached me to host 'India's Best Dramebaaz', it was difficult for me to turn down their offer."
"I am getting an opportunity to interact with so many talented children and the audience will get to see a more easygoing, fun-loving aspect of my personality." --IBNS
