The Gujarati community holds a natural inclination to dance and its multiple forms; their love for this art is seen in their rich culture and heritage. Therefore, with Naach Maari Saathe we decided to bring them a unique platform that gives young talent a once in a lifetime opportunity to showcase their passion for dance. With Hitu, Vyoma and Neerav agreeing to be a part of the judges’ trio – the energy on the show has been magnificent. With efforts like this, we hope to continue changing the entertainment landscape in the region.”

After winning hearts with his diverse performances in films and his recent foray into politics, Hitu Kanodia is all set to debut as a judge on television with Naach Maari Saathe.

Speaking about this, he said, “I have always wanted to try my hand at different things and being a judge on a reality show is new to me, so I am really looking forward to it. I believe it is very important for the state to have its own show that gives our youth a platform to showcase their talent and I am glad to be a part of the same.”

Vyoma Nandi added saying, “Personally, I really enjoy dancing and I can promise you that viewers are in for a treat with some of the performances that we have seen during the audition phase itself. We have a great team in place and I am really looking forward to the start of the show.”

Dance choreographer Neerav Bavlecha echoed similar sentiments and said, “Dancing is my passion and I believe that we are going to unearth some phenomenal talent from Gujarat with the start of this show. I have been on the other side as a participant as well and I know what it takes to get here. I just want to tell all the contestants to be themselves and put their best foot forward.”
