One year ago, you would’ve passed him by without giving him a second glance. Now, VJ Andy, the cool new face in the VJ-ing circuit, says he’s plagued by “fans in cities such as Delhi asking for autographs.”
Interestingly, Andy, whose real name is Anand Kumar, was born and brought up in England and worked as a choreographer before his stint as a VJ on Channel [V].
Ask him how similar is he to his ‘loud’ avatar on the show, and he says, “I am a bit heightened but essentially myself, since I don’t want to look plastic or caricature-like. Some people discuss how I’m not real on the show, but that doesn’t bother me.”
Having finished the first season of Dare 2 Date, which airs its finale tonight, Andy reveals a second season is in the pipeline. Asked if there’s anyone he would pick for a date, he instantly replies, “Madhuri Dixit. She’s one of the people I moved to Mumbai for. I know it won’t happen, but I’m hopeful.” There’s nobody he would say no to, though. “I never say never, I’m afraid,” he says mischievously.
Any advice for a perfect date? “Just be yourself and enjoy yourself. And if someone doesn’t like that, they can go sc**w themselves,” he says.
