Our campaign for this season, #JantaKaPyaar, emphasizes the power of aam junta and the fact that their support has helped talent in this country to rise above and beyond.The 9pm weekend slot on COLORS has worked tremendously well for us with a hit season of Khatron Ke Khiladi and we are sure that this season of Rising Star will resonate with the audience in a similar way.”

Manisha Sharma, Chief Content Officer, Hindi Mass Entertainment said, “Our audience have enjoyed shows like Bigg Boss and Khatron Ke Khiladi over the weekends and promising the same energy and entertainment, we are back with the third season of Rising Star for our primetime slot. We are delighted to have Shankar Mahadevan and Diljit Dosanjh back on the expert panel along with Neeti Mohan as the newest member. Brand new addition to the team will also be the host, Aditya Narayan. Back after two successful seasons, Rising Star is the only LIVE show with no fake emotions, no over produced tears and stories.

In this show your teacher, your community and even your society will all cheer for you to be a singing star.” 

Producer Vipul D Shah of Optimystix Pvt Ltd, said, “The Indian audience has overwhelmed us with the love they have showered on Rising Star in the first two seasons. This time again, the wall between the contestants and the audience continues to remain the most crucial element of the show and it can only be lifted for the best singers based on live votes. Our concentration in this season is of course, the mass support of the public via live voting. It is the audience who has the power to pave the path of success and opportunities for our talented singers”. 

Music Maestro, Shankar Mahadevan who is returning for the 3rd season of the show, said, “I have been mesmerised by the talent on Rising Star in the past seasons and I am sure this year too we will witness some exceptional talent. For me the focus remains on the nuances that one needs to work on to get the pulse of the song right. Also, it's important that whichever song they choose, communicates the emotion well. I believe, contestants should also treat this as a platform to enhance their skills.”

Adding further, acclaimed singer Diljit Dosanjh, said, “The talent we witness on Rising Starhas always been inspiring. It is indeed a delight to meet these extraordinary contestants from all walks to life and watch them touch lives through music. In the past two years, I’ve witnessed multiple artists get their due limelight and I am sure the line-up this year is equally promising.

The live voting process that lifts the wall between the contestants and the audience is quite exciting as it happens real time. I feel every deserving talent should be encouraged and that's what my role would be on the show. This is my first live reality show and I can’t wait for this journey to begin”.

Actor-Singer Aditya Narayan who will take over the reins as the host this season said,“I have hosted a fair share of reality shows but never have I been associated with a show with such a concept of live voting.  It is such a privilege to work on this property and meet contestants with such unique stories and outstanding talent.”
