Actor and anchor, Rithvik Dhanjani who rose to recognition as the television heartthrob with Pavitra Rishta, brings the most exciting show on a premium OTT platform that revolves around the modern dating scene in the world of dating apps but with an interesting twist.
The show to air starting December, will have young adults who will come seeking for a date but only this time around, it will be their parents who will take the call & choose to either swipe left or right. This one tops the list of dating shows as it is quirky & something we have never seen before. It will mark Rithvik‘s first OTT hosting gig after being the fun anchor on a number of talent reality shows.
Last seen in a grey shade in the web -show Cartel, Rithvik has been picking his work selectively alongside his anchoring gigs around the world. Known for his flamboyance & fun side on social media, Rithvik is all set to bring his show tentatively titled as Date Baazi where two generations will come together & play cupid & match dates.
Sharing his excitement,
‘The Gen Z dating game right now is inevitably fun, livid, bizarre, but imagine you put your parents in the equation of your dating game, if the generation wants to date today, you simply go on the app, swipe left or right & decide according to their preferences, their likes, their dislikes, but imagine that power is taken away from you, the power is now in the hands of your parents, how would they choose a date for you? that is a very unique idea, I’m super excited about,’ Rithvik shares.
‘I always have fun hosting & it is my first on the OTT space & this show is vibrant, young, funny in ways more than one.. we are putting two generational mindsets together & see how they clash & yet come together…It is going to be a beautiful amalgamation,’ he sighs.
