Actress Malaika Arora is doing a reality show for NDTV Imagine as she is very comfortable with the home medium.
"I'm anchoring a music show called Dhoom Machale, which starts in February and goes right up to April. It's a weekly and doesn't require me to take too much time off my domestic duties," Malaika told IANS.
So what's the new show about?
"It's a music contest where the contestants are all professional singers like Sunita Rao and Kamal Khan. I agree I'm not a singer. I'm a dancer and therefore more qualified to judge Nach Baliye. See, here we'll be judging the overall package and not the nuances in the singing".
"All the contestants are people I've known earlier. So it's more in the spirit of fun and leisure," said Malaika who was one of the first VJs on TV.
Malaika says she'd never do anything that would neglect her son or make her feel less than comfortable.
"I'm very comfortable with the home medium. I don't think about a big or small medium. For me the important thing is to do things that don't interfere with my son's upbringing. To catch him smiling and playing when we go to our farm in Panvel is far more important than anything I do professionally."
"I was a judge on Nach Baliye. Why not Nach Part 3? NDTV made me an offer and I couldn't resist. Besides, all my friends from Nach Baliye moved on to NDTV. I had a whale of a time working with them.
"I believe not in working relationships but working with people with whom I share a lasting relationship. That rapport shows in my work."
She had judged a music contest called Cine Stars Ki Khoj
