'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' returns with new season on Zee TV

Shankar Mahadevan, Himesh Reshammiya, and Vishal Dadlani come together as judges.

Mumbai: Following the success of "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li'l Champs" last year, Zee TV has announced the return of its longest-running singing reality show, "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa," starting 16 October, every Saturday and Sunday at 9 p.m.

The upcoming season of the show will see Shankar Mahadevan, Himesh Reshammiya, and Vishal Dadlani come together as judges. "As we kick-off ‘Music Ka Sabse Bada Tyohaar’ during the festive season, I am sure we will have double the fun. It’s all the more exciting to be judging this season alongside Vishal and Himesh and I‘m hoping to have a marvellous time judging the show with the two of them," shared Mahadevan.

Singer-anchor Aditya Narayan will be seen turning host for the upcoming season, returning to the show after his last stint in 2018. "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa has always held a special place in my heart as I started my hosting career with this show, and I feel really honoured to be associated with it. It marked the beginning of my career, and it continues to do so for numerous budding singers across India," commented Narayan.

"Sa Re Ga Ma Pa" announced its auditions for the season three months ago with the show’s in-house creative team and production houses – Zee Studios and The Content Team evaluating fresh talent day in, day out to pick only the most promising voices with true potential, said the channel in a statement.

“Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, our deeply cherished singing reality platform has stayed relevant to music lovers of today and continues to carry forth a legacy we are collectively proud of as a nation, simply because of its golden standards of excellence in singing calibre," said Zee TV business head Aparna Bhosle. "As we enter the festive season, we are keen to present the latest season as the biggest celebration of music ever. We hope to discover some rare gems and hone them to perfection while entertaining our audiences every weekend!”    

The platform that has been instrumental in discovering some of the most prominent singing stars of the music fraternity over the past 25 years including the likes of Shreya Ghoshal, Kunal Ganjawala, Kamal Khan, Amanat Ali, Raja Hassan, Sanjeevani, and Bela Shende is back on television.

“Although I have been a part of several seasons of this reality show, each season has left me surprised with the kind of talent that appears on stage," stated Himesh Reshammiya. "They are not just adept in the field of music but have their own style and aura of presenting songs, which all the more makes each season worthwhile to watch. Even after all these years, I am quite thrilled to be a part of the judge’s panel because I truly believe that it is going to be a real treat to watch these raw talents perform.”

“Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and I go back a long way and it truly feels wonderful to return to the show after a while. What makes this season more exciting is the celebration of music that we are kickstarting as well as the chance of sharing the judge’s panel with some of the finest names in the industry," said Vishal Dadlani. "I have a great equation with both Himesh and Shankar and whenever we have worked together, we have had a lot of fun through our music. I look forward to shaping the future of this season’s contestants.”
