This high action inspirational journey of asli heroes’ premieres starting May 6th and will air every Saturday-Sunday at 9:00 pm only on &TV.

Excitement, adrenaline rush, happiness, sorrow… evoking many such emotions India’s Asli Champion...Hai Dum! is a uniquely crafted show which aims to find the Fittest Indian. After an intensive search across the nation, the contestants have been chosen purely based on their competence levels – notwithstanding their age or social background. Set in Goa, these contestants will be living under one roof in the Champions Village, training their mind and body with the help of celebrity fitness trainers Shivoham and Vrinda Mehta to prepare themselves for the various gruelling tasks. Each week, one contestant who has performed the best will be elected as the Captain, a position coveted by everyone. However, the biggest gratification for the contestants is to win the medals – an honour for the best performer of the week.

This is our step towards making India fit and we are glad to have Suniel Shetty at its forefront.”

Host Suniel Shetty shares, “India's Asli Champion…Hai Dum is an apt show for me as it marries my passion with profession and when that happens it creates magic. The show is all about real people and bringing out the Champion in them. Right from the contestant’s struggles to their victories and transformation; everything is real. It aims at making people believe that they can achieve the impossible by pushing boundaries and overcoming challenges. I’m certain that the show will surely be an inspiring journey for the viewers.”
