Mumbai: As the countdown for the Champions Trophy begins, Viu, the video-on-demand service released the first look of the 2nd Season of ‘What The Duck’, their marquee cricket-gone-crazy property.
Hosted by Vikram Sathaye, this cricket comedy show will whisk away cricket fans to a quirky place where Shikhar Dhawan tells us why his mother used to lock him into the house, Ravichandran Ashwin tells us why “In order to get Sehwag out, you first need to get his ego out”, Rohit Sharma reveals Rahane’s mysterious kiss and Parthiv Patel chuckles on all his sledging stories. The digital premium show will be out on 5th June, and can be streamed exclusively on the Viu app available on Android or iOS.
The show is set to kick off with the interview of Ravichandran Ashwin opening the series in the same cavalier manner that he does on the cricket field. The episodes to follow will see Vikram indulge in candid conversations with an all-star line-up of players be it cricketing legends or the boys from the upcoming Champions Trophy. Fascinating anecdotes, insightful stories and personal milestones from Kapil Dev, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Sir Viv Richards, Parthiv Patel and KL Rahul among others, will be available on your mobile screens.
Stand-up comedian and cricket aficionado, Vikram Sathaye says, “What The Duck 1 succeeded like the Mumbai Team at IPL 2017! While Viru Paaji and Sachin cracked us up with their quips and satire, in Season 2 we have Shikhar Dhawan jumping out of windows, Ashwin mimicking Bhajji and Parthiv trying to open emergency doors of flights!!! What was amazing was how legends such as Sir Viv and Kapil Paaji opened up a Pandora’s Box of laughter and entertainment.”
