~ Kids dictate our choices but when it comes to Kids choices you know how particular they are. Such were Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards! ~

I have re-lived my childhood days courtesy my kid brother (as I like to call him with an age gap of almost a decade plus though he is an adult now). There used be certain times of the morning as well as evening when we would not let anyone touch the TV remote because screen time during those was reserved for us. That was the era when TV was one of the only sources of entertainment as Internet was still a luxury which not many could afford. Our favourite cartoons and TV shows were not to be missed by us at any cost and we would gang up being the youngest in the three siblings and dictate our terms! Love the nostalgia of the golden era gone by! 😉

So when we got to know about Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards 2018 and whatever is gonna happen at the glittering ceremony, we were both like ‘how can WE miss such a fun event’! Our favourite celebrities shaking their leg with Nicktoons! The most awaited kids award show was to be witnessed live by us and was all set to come to life on December 13th, 2018 at NSCI Dome, Mumbai.


So both my brother and me flew down for the grand event from Delhi to Mumbai. It was time to blow the trumpets and roll out the orange carpet for Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards 2018. Excited kids gathered at the grand ceremony with their parents as well as siblings. Afterall it was the most unique award show for the kids and by the kids which was all set to witness a high decibel fun and entertainment yet again! The arena all decked up in Nickelodeon colours welcomed us in the most charming way. Excited kids were jostling with energy to watch the show. Different characters were present and kids enjoyed their time being in the same frame and getting clicked for the paparazzi.





We walked on the red oops orange carpet like a celebrity and took our seats in the grand auditorium. It is the same carpet which also witnessed our favourite celebrities coming and making the grand entry. The stage had a charm of its own! The whole universe with planets, airplane and spaceship looked life like. As excited as kids, we were anticipating what all will happen. We saw the heart throb Kartik Aaryan taking the centre stage arriving in a grand entry singing and dancing with our nicktoons Motu Patlu, Shiva, Rudra, Ninja Hattori & many more. He was such a charmer! Infact, kids pulled his leg by asking him to name all the nicktoons! Kartik was the perfect host for the evening!




Scintillating performances by Meet brothers set the stage on fire! We loved how he was joined by Urvashi Rautela & our little Kulfi and Amyra from the show Kulfi Kumar Bajewala who danced to Chittiyan Kalaiyan Ve!




Different celebrities rocked the stage with their performances! Alia Bhatt came dressed as a school girl and entertained everyone dancing to ‘All is well’, ‘Galti se Mistake’, and then she danced with the newest nicktoon Rudra on ‘Party to Banti Hain and was then joined by Motu Patlu to dance on ‘Go Go Golmaal’. The little girl can be anyone from a student to wife with ease and poise! Hats off!



Sonakshi Sinha in a Punjabi avatar showed off her bhangra skills taking the dholak in hand and dancing to Punjabi numbers. Varun Dhawan made a dashing entry in a rocket which landed on stage while he was dancing to ‘Chalti Hai Kya 9 se 12’! While on stage he was joined by Nicktoons to shake a leg on ‘Tamma Tamma’, ‘High Rated Gabru’ , ‘Sab Badhiya Hai’ and ‘Swag se Karenge Sabka Swagat’. It was lovely to also see Kids shake a leg too with Bollywood stars, singers as well as nicktoons. Yes, they were also invited to the stage!



The night was full of fun activities like Slime rain and Tongue twisters which Kartik made Ishaan Khatter and Huma Qureshi say!


Kartik didn’t let any celebrity walk off the stage without doing the signature KCA shake- from our star kid Kulfi Kumar to the newest bride of the B town Deepika Padukone. Deepika Padukone who made one of her first public appearance after tying the knot at the award ceremony enacted to a nursery rhyme ‘Machli Jal ki Rani! It was just so cute!
