Colors has confirmed the return of its popular talent hunt show ‘India’s Got Talent’ to spruce up its weekend line up.
With ‘India۪s Got Talent’ turning four this season, the show will have not three but four jury members on the panel veteran actor Kirron Kher, celebrated director Karan Johar, dance diva Malaika Arora Khan and the versatile choreographer cum director turned actor Farah Khan. The show is all set for a grand launch this weekend at 22:00 (Saturday 22nd September).
Speaking about the show, Manisha Sharma, Weekend Programming Head, Colors said, India۪s Got Talent is a celebration of the diverse talent that India has to offer and we are proud to present another exciting season. This time, the platform will set a new benchmark in presentation and talent; we have infact crossed all boundaries and have stepped outside of the studio to present some real edgy and engaging action from the spot.
Talking about judging ‘India۪s Got Talent’ for the first time, Karan Johar says, “India۪s Got Talent is the only show that does not limit itself to singing-dancing rather extends the stage to a variety of talent and is a launch pad for newcomers. At Dharma Productions too, we have given a break to various artists, directors, actors and been part of their success story, which is a huge high. I am looking forward to many life changing experiences like these on India۪s Got Talent.
Kirron Kher who has been associated with India۪s Got Talent since its inceptions says, This is my fourth year of judging India۪s Got Talent and the stage is not new to me, I know what India۪s Got Talent is capable of and the responsibility of bringing the best is on our shoulders. This season, the bar has been raised and the quality of the talent has just gone up completely. We have already seen some spectacular talent and I cannot wait to take on this new journey of discovering some more.
Anupama Mandloi, Head of Content, Freemantle media, “This season has been very unpredictable as we have had numerous talents from across the country. The team travelled to 21 cities looking for extraordinary talent and the experience turned out to be better than expected. We are glad that we found right mix of people, of different age group with wide-ranging skill sets. This is the best platform to showcase the brilliant variety of talent owing to the diverse and traditional nature of our country.
Giving this season the glamour and glitz, Malaika Arora Khan who joins the jury panel this year says, It۪s an honour to be given the mantle of honing and polishing the talent to face the world. It۪s this one chance that is a make or break and I am helping the contestants give their best shot.
Also joining the three juries will be Farah Khan who will have a special role to play in this season. She says, I started as a young choreographer in my teens, directed my first film in my thirties and made my acting debut this year. There is absolutely no stopping for the talented, not even age. I am excited to be part of a show like India۪s Got Talent, the only show where they believe in age no bar, talent no bar.
Manish Paul and Cyrus Sahukar will host the show.
