Karan Hukku, Sara Khan and Parul Chauhan are best new talents on Indian television

MUMBAI: It was a night when India‘s leading and new television stars descended at Indiantelevision.com‘s New Talent Awards where for the first time, popularity and excellence of new TV stars, new producers, and programmes were honoured and recognised.


Kahe Naa Kahe‘s (9X) Karan Hukku, and Sara Khan and Parul Chauhan of Bidaai (Star Plus) bagged the ?Best New Actor? and ?Best New Actress? award respectively. Ramayana on NDTV Imagine was conferred as ?Most promising New show of the year?.


Another highlight of the evening was Indian Telly Technical Trade, Channel and Programming (TTTCP) Awards, where Indiantelevision.com honoured the real stars behind television. It admires the production teams, the marketing whiskies, the ad sales teams and the programmers behind any creative idea or show.



A special ‘Ramanand Sagar Award for Technical Excellence‘ was given to C.I.D. producer BP Singh. A beaming Singh said, ?I am very happy that there is such an initiative for technical awards. In India, the technical people are not given the credit they deserve unlike in the west." On the point of where Indian television is headed, Singh said, "At present TV is at the crossroads and it is to be seen where it goes. Huge investments are happening in TV, so it is debatable whether it is a viable media any more."



In the ‘Best Channel‘ categories Hungama TV bagged the ?Best Kid‘s Channel? award. Channel [V] won the ?Best Music Channel? award, while HBO was awarded the ?Best English Movie Channel?.



The ?Cable operator/ MSO (Multi Systems Operator) of the year? went to Hathway Cable & Datacom.



The awards night was anchored by Cyrus Sahukar and Barkha Bisht. The glittering and star-studded awards night was marked by lively performances from Sayantani Ghosh, Mouni Roy, Romit Raj, Vikas Sethi, Parul Chauhan and Krystal D‘Souza among others.



The glittering evening had the who‘s who of the television industry in attendance.



The Awards gala was held at the Hyatt in Mumbai.



The first New Talent Awards had categories like ‘Best New Actor‘, ‘Best New TV Personality‘ among others, while the TTTCP Awards include: Special/ Visual Effect for Television; Art Direction Drama and Non-fiction; Videography; Costumes among other.



Sahara One is the telecast partner of the event. NDTV Imagine joined in as the platinum partner with 9X as the gold partner and Aaj Tak and Sony Entertainment Television (SET) as silver partners. Tellychakkar.com is the online partner of the event.



The exquisite stage and set was designed by the Kunal Bhandula while all the sequences were choreographed by Harshal ?Vitthal duo (choreographers of the Nach Baliye 2 winners Tina-Hussain). Costumes were by Reza Sharif and SOL Productions did the TV production of the event.
