Sony Entertainment Television Asia’s hit talent show ‘Indian Idol’ will return for a sixth season in June, BizAsia can confirm.

The show has been slotted on Friday and Saturday nights at 20:30 starting from 1st June.

When ‘Indian Idol 5’ started, its initial audition process ran through Monday to Thursday nights, however the channel has changed its strategy this time around.

‘Indian Idol 6’ will be the channel’s big ticket show, which has worked wonders for it previously.

Mini Mathur and Hussain who have previously hosted the show will once again be back as the faces of the show.

Anu Malik, Sunidhi Chauhan and Salim Merchant will form the new judging panel on the successful show.
