Zee lines up reality show to celebrate 'Sa re ga ma pa' success


MUMBAI: Zee TV is celebrating 10 years of its famous musical bonanza Sa Re Ga Ma Pa by initiating Challenge 2005.

The winners, a boy and a girl, would get a music contract with Universal, a chance to sing for the Zee Telefilms movie with the winners of India's Best Cinestar Ki Khoj, a luxury car and an all furnished two bedroom flat in Mumbai.


This will be one reality show that promises to go beyond just the participants. The epitomes of the music industry, the 4 mentors will come together only to battle against one another in a bid to make their team win the title of the Challenge 2005 series, states an official release.

The audience will be exposed for the first time to onscreen rivalry between music wizards – Jatin Lalit (Hum Tum, Chalte Chalte), Ismail Darbar (Devdas, Kisna), Adesh Shrivastav (Baghban, Dev) and Himesh Reshammiya (Tere Naam, Humraaz) who will act as the mentors.

The show will see 32 contestants selected from 10 cities compete with each other. Each of the 4 mentors will be given a team of young singers to nurture and develop. The mentors shall then come in the field with their respective teams and battle with each other to establish the winner, hence reiterating their supremacy in the music industry today.


Speaking on the occasion Zee TV president Abhijit Saxena says, "Challenge 2005 is a step forward towards our constant endeavor to give all our audience members a fair chance to show their talents on a common platform."

With thousands of aspiring singers already auditioned in Delhi, Jamshedpur and Indore, auditions in Mumbai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Jodhpur, Lucknow, Chandigarh and Bangalore are keenly awaited in the coming weeks, the release adds.

Zee TV will telecast Challenge 2005 starting 9 June Thursday-Friday in the 10 pm slot.
