"Nach Baliye 7" may have introduced fresh concepts – right from format to hosts – to lure viewers, but looks like fans of the dance reality show appreciate the previous anchors better.
Last week, IBTimes India conducted a poll asking who was a better host: Karan Wahi-Gautam Rode or Karan Patel-Rithvik Dhanjani? The former pair finished first with an impressive 64.34% votes.
While the results aren't shocking as not too many viewers were thrilled to see Karan and Rithvik host the show, producer Ekta Kapoor had a few nice words to say about them.
"Content on television has evolved over the years and I think it is only fitting to try something new! We have two of the most desirable men on television hosting the show, but even there, we have tried to keep it light-hearted and fun," she told The Times of India.
Also what's interesting to note is both are ex-contestants and so they understand the spirit of the show.
Meanwhile, here's what Gautam and Karan's (Wahi) fans have to say:
meds: And I miss Gautam Rode and Karan Wahi as hosts :( They were the best!!! I;d rather have the jhalak judges tooo! They are my faves (sic).
Ashwi: Weren't Karan Wahi and Gautam Rode best hosts for Nach Baliye?! New hosts and new judges, okay...
