Superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s six-pack abs in ‘Om Shanti Om’ gave a complex to many including 20-year-old Aditya Narayan, best known for hosting ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007′. He says he was ashamed of his paunch after seeing King Khan’s toned body.’


When I saw Shah Rukh’s six-packs in ‘Dard-e-disco’ song in ‘Om Shanti Om’, I felt so ashamed. At 42, he is so fit, so popular and has so much money. And at such a young age, I had a paunch. I was so ashamed, ‘ singer-actor-anchor Aditya told over phone from Mumbai.

Aditya, son of well-known playback singer Udit Narayan, debuted as an anchor with ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007′ and later went on to host ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champs’ as well. He also won several television awards for his stint as a host.

Aditya is currently in his final year of graduation, and he says he has already been offered about 60 films.’

I will begin shooting for the first one around November-December, but I can’t disclose any details about it. Besides that, I have been offered about 50-60 films, but I have decided on only a couple of them. Actually, I’ve been getting more acting offers than singing, ‘ he quipped.

As a child, Aditya sang alongside his father in ‘Akele Hum Akele Tum’ in 1995 and then with Asha Bhosle in ‘Rangeela’. He shot to fame for his song ‘Chotta bachcha’ in the 1996 film ‘Masoom’.

He also appeared in movies like ‘Pardes’ and ‘Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota’ as a child artiste.Now set to become a full-fledged hero, Aditya is quite sure of the kind of films he wants to do.’

I want to do love stories, maybe college romance stories or some new genre. I don’t want to do offbeat films in the beginning; so commercial cinema is what I want to do first, ‘ he said.
Whether commercial or offbeat, Aditya says he will sing for himself in his films.

An actor who can host and sing his own tunes? That’s a triple threat. And he looks cute enough. So watch out Bollywood.
