ZEE TV will be launching a new acting-based reality TV show called ‘India’s Best Dramebaaz’ in the weekend slot.
This will be the third attempt by the channel to create a property searching for raw acting talent. Previous shows ‘Cinestars Ki Khoj’ in 2004 and ‘India’s Best Cinestar’ in 2006 did not do so well on the channel.
‘India’s Best Dramebaaz’ is likely to slotted in the weekend slot, which is currently occupied by ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. The show is slated to run for more than 20 weeks.
Talking to aFaqs, Ajay Bhalwankar, head, programming, ZEE TV, said, “Acting is not restricted to just movies, theatre or television shows. It is a day-to-day ingredient of life. When kids throw tantrums for not having milk or when parents tell them stories while feeding, it’s all a part of expressions, voice modulation and hence, acting. This is the insight that works behind the show.With kids on board, this will be the most innocent form of talent.”
A launch date for the show is yet to be confirmed.
