VJ Andy along with his choreographer Bhavani was seen on popular reality show Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa Season 7. He was the first contestant on jhalak who has been eliminated from the show.

He said- "I never expected that my innings will be so short. I tried to give my best but I feel that I could not make it to the audience's hearts. I had a little bit inhibitions since the beginning because my dance partner was completely new with no experience of reality show."

In India's Got Talent

The ex-Bigg Boss contestant VJ Andy was last seen hosting India's Got Talent Season 5 with Bharti Singh after semi final rounds. He said, "I've done reality show but not as big as India's Got Talent.

Family members of the Bigg Boss 7 contestants visited their loved ones entering in the house during a special luxury budget task. For Andy's mother it was a memorable experience she said, "It was a wonderful experience meeting everyone inside the house as they greeted me with gratitude. I met Andy and he was surprised seeing me inside the Bigg Boss house. I had a long chat with all the inmates and asked them why don't they make my child the captain? I asked them why they always make my kid cry. He is helping each and everyone in the house."
