According to Parameshwara the change in two judges was not intentional. We thought of new ones and come across Suman Ranganath and national and international fame bharatanatyam exponent Anuradha Vikranth.
Akul Balaji is there to create pranks and get sweet scolding from V Ravichandran – this pair is also super hit of the event.
