Actor and ace dancer Shantanu Maheshwari who recently made the country proud again by representing India at the prestigious Oxford University for a mega dance performance is now going to be seen in a different avatar! Shantanu Maheshwari is all set to return to the reality space and yes he will be participating as a contestant. According to our sources, Shantanu will be soon seen in a cooking-based reality show. Furthermore, he will be joined by his mother. Shantanu along with his mother is set for Kitchen Champions! Interestingly, this isn't the first time the two have come together for a reality show. In the past, Shantanu and his mother had performed for a special dance performance on season 9 of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. And after dancing the two will be cooking together.

Well, as you must be aware of the concept of the cooking based show, a duo faces another popular celebrity duo. And to challenge Shantanu and his mother, the mastermind of the TV has been brought on board. Bigg Boss contestant Vikas Gupta has been roped in as the other participant who will be tagged along with his friend. So the competition will be between Shantanu and Vikas.

Our source says, "The makers were quite keen on roping in Shantanu with his mother this time, as they felt that the mother son duo would work perfectly for the episode. Shantanu who infact has picked up all his cooking skills from his mother was said to be quite excited to now be cooking with her on the show. We also hear that Shantanu and his mom will be competing in the Kitchen with Ace of Space director Vikas Gupta whose coming along with a friend! Well, seems like the boys are definitely going to have a gala time championing it out in the kitchen."

When Vikas Gupta was contacted, the producer confirmed his participation in the show, however, rectified that he won't be entering with a friend but her mother. He also shared his skepticism of competing against Shantanu. "Still not aware about that," he said.
