Riteish Deshmukh to make his Marathi TV debut on Star Pravah

MUMBAI: Breaking the boundaries of Marathi General Entertainment (GE), Star’s Marathi entertainment channel, Star Pravah is all set to present edge-of-the-seat excitement to Marathi viewers with its new non-fiction show Vikta Ka Uttar featuring Bollywood superstar Riteish Deshmukh.

In a first of its kind format, Vikta ka Uttar is a unique quiz show that will be a trendsetter for Marathi speaking audiences. Riteish will feature in a ‘never-seen-before’ avatar in this upcoming show, which endeavours not only to entertain, but also give every Maharashtrian a unique platform to earn lakhs of rupees as prize money.

Highly excited about his foray on Marathi Television Riteish opines, “Marathi is my mother tongue and I am really excited to debut on Marathi TV as a host. For quite some time, I have been looking at various concepts and formats but when Star Pravah approached me with Vikta Ka Uttar, I knew 'this was it'. In this show, the bargaining skills of a contestant will be put through rigour. I strongly believe that Vikta Ka Uttar will establish connect with every viewer because in our daily lives we keep on bargaining for some of the other reason.”

Stressing on his passion for Marathi content, “A Maharashtrian should never forgo his Marathiness. It will be my honest endeavor to give my best while hosting this show for Marathi audience. I am very excited to be a part of Star Pravah family. I am really looking forward to hosting my first Marathi Television show ‘Vikta Ka Uttar’.”
