The show is back with a new season, new stories and a new host
Fox Traveller is ready with the second season of It Happens Only In India. But the show will now be hosted by Sugandha Garg and not Malishka.
Sugandha is excited about the opportunity and says that the travel show is unique as it took her to lesser known places in the country where she stumbled upon quirky stories. Usually travel shows take you on exotic locales, luxury hotels and cruise parties, but It Happens Only in India is different. The 13 episode series will take viewers to places like Bundi in Rajasthan, Sindhudurg in Maharashtra, Jamnagar in Gujarat and Bidar in Karnataka.
Sugandha said, “After doing this show, I am overwhelmed. The show takes the viewer on a ride as a traveller to places that one thought never existed… There is no way India can be canvassed in one show, but we tried to show a little of the lot. We have stories from the hidden interior parts like – coffee processed from the droppings of a civet cat; ulta Ramayana and Bhagvad Gita, which can be read only with a mirror; street dentists who practice on the footpath and more,” she told IANS.
Sugandha, who has starred in movies such as Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na and Tere Bin Laden, is an avid traveller. She is already planning a trip to Ladakh with her husband Raghu Ram – the man behind MTV’s Roadies. “I love travelling and I can travel anytime I am asked to. I am a backpack person and hate travelling by air. My journey has to be by road. Travelling makes us a better person because one gets to see the world around,” she said.
It Happens Only In India airs Sundays on Fox Traveller at 8 pm.
