Sony to launch dance-based reality show on 9 July

MUMBAI: Beefing up its non fiction content, Sony Entertainment Television (Set) is preparing to launch another dance based reality show, Kabhi Kabhii Pyaar Kabhi Kabhii Yaar.

Produced jointly by Balaji Telefilms and Popcorn Entertainment, the bi-weekly show will kick off on 9 July at 8 pm and will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays. It will replace Waar Pariwaar and Naye Roop Nayi Zindagi on Wednesday and Thursday respectively.

Waar Pariwaar will become a bi-weekly and will be aired only on Monday and Tuesday at 8 pm.

Kabhi Kabhii Pyaar Kabhi Kabhii Yaar will see celebrities performing with their real as well as reel life partners.

Set business head and EVP Albert Almeida said, "Dance based reality shows have an emotional, dramatic and visually appealing side to it. However in Kabhi Kabhii Pyaar Kabhi Kabhii Yaar, viewers will witness for the first time the actual chemistry between favourite star and his reel/real life partners."

The one-hour show will air for seven weeks. In the first episode, the celebrity will perform with their respective spouses and in the second episode they will perform with their on-screen partners.

From the second week onwards, one trio will get eliminated till the last two trios are left to compete for finals.

The channel has roped in filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, choreographer Ganesh Hegde and Sameera Reddy as judges for the show. The show has kept away the viewer‘s voting and marks will be strictly decided by the judges.

The last two celebrities in each episode will have to choose one of his or her partners, depending on the marks that they get from the judges.

Set AVP Danish Khan said, "A lot of flavour will be generated on the show as the trios are real as well as reel life partners. The turning point will be when each one will have to choose either of their partners. Besides we are also expecting Ekta to get in some more spice as all the participants act in her fiction shows."

The big ticket reality show will see trios like Hiten Tejwani-Gauri Pradhan-Nandini Singh, Kashmera Shah-Krushna-Mukul Dev, Amit Sarin-Vinisha Sarin-Aashka Goradia, Karnvir Bohra- teejay Bohra- Tina Parekh, Vishal Singh-Dimple Jhangiani-Parineeta Sahu, Jatin Shah-Priya Bhatija- Shalini Chandran and Mridul-wasna-Tine, as participants.

Kabhi Kabhii Pyaar Kabhi Kabhii Yaar will be hosted by Sachin Tyagi and Rakshanda Khan.
