Nihal Raj aka Kicha, the 6-year-old from Kochi with a cooking show on YouTube, has become the youngest Indian ever to feature on the popular Ellen DeGeneres Show. This talk show is a fun combination of celebrity guest interviews, comedy, and human-interest stories, and has a huge fan following worldwide.
Kicha, who is still in the US after recording the show, is on cloud nine. According to Kicha’s father Rajagopal, it was completely unexpected. They got an email from Ellen’s team after they spotted his channel Kicha Tube on YouTube and the rest as they say is history.
Kicha’s family, including his father, mother and sister, accompanied him to the Warner Bros. Studio in Los Angeles where the recording took place over three days.
