Mithun: 'We are just trying our best'

By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, May 24 -- Actor Mithun Chakraborthy is back on Dance India Dance as the grand-master. But this time, the contest is for kids and is called Dance India Dance Li'l Masters Season Two. Dada, as he is addressed on the show, made his first appearance on the Zee TV reality show over the weekend.

However, the show started in the last week of April. And like its first season, its opening ratings outdid the numbers garnered by reality shows featuring top stars from Bollywood. Season one opened with a little over six points and season two has flagged off with 5.8 points, which is higher than even Amitabh Bachchan's Kaun Banega Crorepati Season Five and Aamir Khan's Satyamev Jayate's opening numbers (5.3 and 3 respectively).

Mithun attributes the high viewership to the kiddie participants. "
