After the super success of ‘Biggest Loser Jeetaga’ and its recently launched talent hunt show ‘Bathroom Singer’ (on Filmy), Sahara One is now gearing up for yet another reality show called ‘Jjhoom India’.
The channel is introducing ‘Jjhoom India’ as a gap to fill in the weekend slot since ‘Biggest Loser Jeetaga’ wrapped up earlier this year.
“In Jjhoom India, soap stars will be coached by professional singers to sing and perform on stage in front of a jury and live audience. Each performance will be a duet, where the TV stars will perform alongside their mentors (the professional singers). They will be judged by a jury comprising Mahesh Bhatt, Shabani Azmi and music legend Anandji, followed by an SMS poll. One pair stands to get eliminated every week,” says SaharaOne programming head Kalyan Sundaram.
SaharaOne CEO Sharmisha Rijhwani says, “Off late we have seen various reality shows being offered to viewers but Jjhoom India is unique in its concept. For the first time, TV stars will be coached by star singers to offer a complete entertainment package.”
Former Indian Idol contestant Rahul Vaidya and TV actress Sucheta Khanna will host the show.
The following 10 pairs of actor-singer have been roped in for the show: Shweta Tiwari-Suresh Wadkar, Sharad Kelkar-Vaishali Samant, Varun Badola-Akriti Kakkar, Roshni Chopra-Vinod Rathod, Mrinal Kulkarni-Sudesh Bhosle, Shama Sikander-Zubin Garg, Sachin Tyagi-Madhushree, Shekhar Suman-Sanjeevani, Chhavi Mittal-Jatin Pandit, Apara Mehta-Parthiv Gohil.
‘Jjhoom India’ will be aired Friday and Saturday nights on Sahara One UK from 10th November.
