And so it came as no surprise when the superstar was recently judged Best Host for his non-fiction show Just Dance. The show opened to a good TRP of 4.7 and made Saturday night television viewing a compulsion. And in a new research called Characters India Loves, Hrithik won hands down. Sailesh Kapoor, the CEO of Ormax Media, the agency who conducted the research said, “What works for Hrithik is the immense trust viewers have in his ability as a dancer. When it comes to dance, no other star comes close.”
Hrithik’s best buddy Shah Rukh Khan feels that way too. Says he, “Duggu was wary of hosting the show initially, but he’s done such a fantastic job of it. I was on the show for about 20 minutes recently and I could feel the positive energy he infused into it. Duggu is unsurpassable as a dancer.’’
Filmmaker and TV host Karan Johar adds, “Hrithik has an extremely charming demeanour on television. His connection with the participants is absolutely endearing. He has emerged as one of the most popular hosts on Indian television with this show.”

Hrithik Roshan’s debut on TV has created quite a buzz. His reality show Just Dance on Star Plus got an opening of 4.7, the highest television rating points (TRPs) for a non-fiction show in 2011. Just Dance is a show where the best dance talent have been chosen following a series of global auditions in cities from New York to Kolkata, giving dance aficionados a chance to match steps with Hrithik. Of 30,000 contestants, 52 were selected and now they will showcase their unique dance moves to choreographers Farah Khan and Vaibhavi Merchant and ultimately, Hrithik. The dancers’ intense training and the superstar’s personal involvement will push them to transform from dancers to performing stars.
Hrithik’s thrilled with the viewer response in the first week. He told BT, “The credit for the super opening must entirely go to the channel’s team, SOL and Carving Dreams. TV is about content and from all the feedback that I have received, it’s clear that they’ve built a good show. I am super excited and am looking forward to the next vigorous round of competition between the best dancers from across the world!”
