In fact, they will be the ones who will stitch each of these funny flashback moments together and narrate it all as a hilarious story on ‘The Happy Hour’!
Ecstatic about hosting the show, Vighnesh Pandey said, “It is fascinating to make a comeback on television after a year’s break and I couldn’t ask for a better return than with The Happy Hour. It is a show that will surely spread cheer and joy in these testing times. It is very unique and will give me an opportunity to take up different characters for a few gags acts, rather than just being a ventriloquist. I am also really excited to be working with ZEE TV once again as well as my co-hosts, Garvit and Dipali. We have all seen their potential in India’s Best Dramebaaz 3, Garvit is a dynamite and Dipali is an expression princess. In fact, we did a few rehearsals for The Happy Hour together and it was fun. Although we connected virtually, I must say we got along really well, and it will be fun working with them.”
Dipali Borkar further added, “I have hosted ZEE TV’s Zee Rishtey Awards as well as Sa Re Ga Ma Pa earlier, but this is a totally different show, and I am really looking forward to it. In fact, Garvit and I have worked together earlier and as we share a great bond, it helps us work smoothly. Having Vignesh Bhaiyya by our side is fun too and he has guided us a lot till now. I have actually observed a lot of talented hosts from the industry like Jay Bhanushali, Rithvik Dhanjani, Manish Paul very closely on various shows, and that has helped me a lot to be a better host. I hope I can entertain one and all on The Happy Hour by playing different characters.”
Garvit Pareek also mentioned, “I cannot express how happy I am to be back on ZEE TV. In fact, Dipali and I have worked together before, so that will help us out, especially because I think we make a good team. While The Happy Hour will be challenging for us, we’ll try to make everyone laugh. As the show has a unique concept, I am sure everyone will also have a gala time watching it.”
