Reason behind retirement

Aditya has said that the prime reason behind deciding to quit hosting is that he wants to focus more on singing. He added that people have forgotten him as a singer and he wants to focus on his true passion.

"But the problem is since I have become a big television host now, people have forgotten that I am a singer too. I hardly do 2-3 songs in a year while you will always see me on TV shows. So my body of work in TV industry outweighs my body of work in the music fraternity by a long shot," he told Bollywoodlife.

Aditya said that now he wants to sing, launch his own album and produce too. "You can say that I did TV for all these years so that I can launch my own music label, make my own music videos and sing them as well. I have reached a point in my life where I would love to be known as a struggling musician rather than a successful TV personality," he added.
