In an interview with Times Of India, 33-year-old Aditya Narayan said he will wrap his prior commitments as a host next year, after which, he was "bigger" plans in mind: "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." Aditya Narayan added that he is looking forward to taking a break from television: "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."
Aditya Narayan, who started hosting shows as a teenager, said that he is grateful to the television industry for making him what he is today but for a change, he wants to be seen not a host but in another role on TV: "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."
Aditya, who is also a singer like his father Udit Narayan, said that he wants to announce his break from TV on Indian Idol soon otherwise he will keep getting hosting offers.
