The second season of the cookery reality show on Colors, Kitchen Champion 2, ends today. Aditya Redij (Raghav of the prime time daily Laado), will be the winner of the title. The third season of the Sanjhi Dophar show flags off on Monday at 1 pm, this time with ordinary housewives as contestants and Bollywood actors as guest cooks.

Juhi Chawla, Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon and Prachi Desai have given the show a go-ahead. Talks are on with other celebrities too. The format of Kitchen Champion is also being tweaked to make it more engaging, since the contestants will be different from the first two seasons this time.

Juhi ChawlaIn the first two seasons, popular actors from the channel’s shows appeared on this show to display their culinary skills. Meghana Mallik, Ammaji from Laado, had won the first season.

For season three, every week, a different Bollywood star would join 20 women participants on the show. Ronit Roy, the host of the last two seasons, continues on the show that hasn’t taken a break so far between the seasons.

Roy feels great that the show has run into three seasons already. “This time, Kitchen Champion-Rasoi Ka Mahayudh will be more entertaining for the viewers because so far, they were just viewers. This time, they are posing as contestants. I can’t thank them enough for making a daily kitchen reality show concept a success,” he beams.

He adds, “If the channel plans seasons four, five, six and seven also, I’d love to be part of them because I can cook anytime, anywhere.”
