This platform is backed by great mentors Salim Merchant & Shraddha Sharma, a technology layer by Sensibol Technologies and a robust platform by Hungama.”

Registrations to the talent contest are now open and will end on the 31 October 2014 , wherein those interested can register via IVR on 092500 32222 or visit the i-genius website The grand finale of Max Life Insurance i-genius Young Singing Stars is scheduled to take place in December.
