ZEE TV’s much awaited new celebrity talent show ‘Star Ya Rockstar’ is creating momentum by the day.

The programme will see celebrities sing and compete with each other. While Sony TV favourite Mona Singh has been confirmed as the host of the show, seven other celebrities will fight for the pole position.

A home-grown format, Star Ya Rockstar۪ will see contestants endure heartbreaking eliminations every Saturday and embark on a journey filled with fun and shocking moments as viewers see a new side of their personalities in the most intense competition over nine weeks. Each contestant will chart his path on the show as an individual and not as part of any team. While fun-filled Saturdays will see the judge selecting the best two and the bottom three among the performances, Sundays will be a time for eliminations.

Ragini Khanna, Neha Marda, Sachin Pilgaonkar, Sumit Raghavan, Mansi Parekh, Chhavi Mittal and Manish Paul have been finalised as the celebrities to take part in the show.

Talking about the show, Ashish Golwalkar, Head Non-Fiction Programming, ZEE TV, said, “The television fraternity is nothing short of a minefield of singing talent. One hears innumerable anecdotes about so many TV actors entertaining the entire crew on the sets with their vocal talents. It is high time that these immensely gifted actors and some of the most sought-after names on the television scene reveal their hidden talents to our audiences who will be thrilled to know of an all-new, interesting facet of their favourite star۪s personality. Star Ya Rockstar۪ will bring the magic of seeing stars with their spirit and passion for music and create a vivid, intimate and powerful entertainment experience for audiences.”

‘Star Ya Rockstar’ will launch in the UK on Saturday 8th October. It will air Saturday and Sunday evenings – in place of ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa: Lil Champs’ which ends this Saturday (1st October).
