We are proud to bring to our viewers another pathbreaking show which has been shot live on the streets, sans any stage, judges or votes. Keshet International is the format owner of this concept which we thought was apt for a market like India which has exceptional talent hidden in every nook and cranny.”

Elaborating on the format, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head – Colors said, “India Banega Manch is a show that viewers have never experienced before. The sets for the show are the arenas of iconic and historical locations like Red Fort, India Gate and Connaught Place in Delhi, New Market and Princep Ghat in Kolkata. The talent has to ensure that they attract the busy people around them with their performances, and force them to stand and watch despite the summer heat; audiences have stepped out in large numbers. Given the scales that viewers are used to, it was very challenging yet exciting for our teams to shoot with hidden cameras. Talent was also a little taken aback to perform in these locations. Even our anchors, Krushna Abhishek and Mona Singh, will be in an avatar unlike ever before. We’re certain that it’s this uniqueness which will make India Banega Manch a truly first-of-its-kind proposition.”

Abhishek said, “The format of the show defies traditions while welcoming a new wave of talent which connects with the masses and wins their hearts.” Adding further, host Mona Singh said, “While I have hosted TV shows in the past, nothing comes close to the thrill and excitement connected to India Banega Manch. There is a different kind of energy that percolates the environment when the talent is performing live in front of audiences. We’ve shot in multiple locations so far, and the response from the viewers has been spectacular.”
