Mumbai: If your favorite singer on Indian Television’s most watched reality shows – Amul Star Voice of India, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, Fame Gurukul and Indian Idol – didn’t win the title, then here’s another chance to cast your precious vote for them. Star Plus brings you yet another opportunity to identify the je ne sais quoi–the fire that separates the better from the best.
Starting 11 April, Star Plus will present Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar, a platform that identifies the most popular small screen musical reality idol between the Champions (winners) and Challengers (runner-ups) of popular musical reality shows such as Amul Star Voice of India, Indian Idol, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and Fame Gurukul.
Keeping a watchful, critical eye are the acclaimed judges, choreographer Farah Khan, music director duo Vishal and Shekhar and host of the show Mandira Bedi. Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar is produced by Endemol, the leading producers of hit reality shows.
Star India GM and EVP Keertan Adyanthaya said, "This is akin to the World Cup or the Olympics, winners of talent shows and the most promising talent across channels coming together to give the audience a chance to judge who’s the best."
There would be two teams on the show–The Champions and The Challengers. The Champions are the title winners of all the various singing talent hunt shows such as Indian Idol, Zee Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, Star Voice of India and Fame Gururkul.
The Challengers are the runner-ups or the ones who almost stole the titles from the winners but did not make the cut. There are 12 Challengers on the show. The show will first have the Challengers battle it out amongst themselves every week to make the cut to the Champions side. One Challenger joins the Champions every week in order to compete alongside them at an equal platform. Basis their performances, the audience and the jury votes decide who will stay on and which one of them will be eliminated the next week.
Says Endemol India country head Deepak Dhar, "We are very excited to present Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar. As the participants’ reputations and their previous shows’ reputations depend on how much they achieve on this show, we are confident that the champions and challengers are going to inject high voltage energy into every performance. Audiences can expect maximum entertainment from this earth-shattering musical extravaganza!"
