Singing reality show Indian Idol 12 host Aditya Narayan recently opened up on his future plans and revealed that from 2020 onwards he will no longer be hosting shows on television and said that after he fulfils prior commitments in the coming months he shall do bigger things. Aditya also hinted that by the time he is done with a TV next year, he’ll be a father.
For the unversed, Aditya Narayan married longtime girlfriend Shweta Agarwal in December 2020.
While fans understood Aditya wanting to quit as a TV host for better career opportunities, what left them wondering was whether this was his subtle way of saying that his wife Shweta Agarwal was pregnant with their first child.
Amid speculations about Shweta’s pregnancy, Aditya Narayan cleared the air and told Pinkvilla in a recent interaction, “We will make an announcement if and when it happens. We are still a year and a half away from the end of 2022. So, I am quite sure that with all the time in hand and all the romance that’s happening, it’s bound to happen. But I believe it was misconstrued as something that has happened. All I was saying is, I am looking forward to it. I got married, bought a new house, and am now looking forward to taking this forward.”
Earlier, talking about quitting hosting on TV after 2022, while speaking to ETimes, Aditya said, “2022 will be my final year as a host on Indian television. I won’t host after that. It’s time to do bigger things. I am bound by prior commitments, which I will complete in the coming months. I have such beautiful associations and relations in the industry that agar main abhi chhod doonga toh it will be like abandoning the ship midway. I am laying the foundation for my way out.”
He added, “I will take a break from TV next year. I feel great about doing multiple things at a time, but it’s also exhausting. As grateful as I am to Indian television for being my cocoon through the past 15 years, it is time to move on to other things.”
Talking about the probability of having a baby next year, Aditya said, “I was a teenager when I started hosting on the small screen, and by the time I am done next year, I will probably be a father (smiles). The TV industry has given me a lot — name, fame, and success. It has enabled me to build a house in Mumbai, own a car and have a great life. It’s not that I will abandon TV, but I will do something else like participate in a game show or judge one. But my time as a host is coming to an end.”
