MUMBAI: Zee TV has been a front-runner in revolutionising television content over the past three decades and it is all set to change the face of music reality shows once again with its latest non-fiction property, the Indian Pro Music League (IPML). In what will be a clutter-breaking format innovation, Zee TV is all set to present audiences with the world’s first ever music league in early 2021. While the world of sports has seen several league competitions, this unique music league will have six teams representing different regions of India, battling it out against each other in a musical championship. Each of these six teams supported by leading Bollywood and sports celebrities will have top playback singers  as their captains, one reality show star and one fresh voice. The likes of Mika Singh, Kailash Kher, Sajid Khan, Shaan, Ankit Tiwari, Javed Ali, Asees Kaur, Bhoomi Trivedi, Akriti Kakar, Payal Dev, Neha Bhasin, Shilpa Rao have been signed on to captain the six zonal  teams.

For such a mammoth music reality show, the channel is launching a vibrant anthem at the Zee Rishtey Awards 2020 that will have each of its 12 team captains coming together for the very first time. Composed by Sajid - Wajid, this musical masterpiece is amongst the last few compositions of the duo before Wajid Khan’s tragic demise.

Composer of the Indian Pro Music League Anthem, Sajid Khan said, “In my entire career, the Indian Pro Music League Anthem has taken me the longest time to compose and record. Wajid and I were kicked about it when it came to us and we worked on it day and night. This is one of our last pieces of the composition together and hence, I am very emotional about it and it is very close to my heart. What makes this even more magical is that we have 18 top singers singing such an anthem for the very first time. Talking about the anthem, it is quite different from our usual compositions. It is upbeat, charged with passion and has a lot of regional flavours to it. I can’t wait and watch to see the audience’s reaction.”

While the anthem being Wajid’s swansong makes it special in itself, the sheer scale of the anthem will also leave you awestruck. The Indian Pro Music League Anthem, which showcases the different regional flavours of the six zonal teams Mumbai Warriors, Delhi Dhurandhars, UP Dabbangs, Punjab Lions, Bengal Tigers and Gujarat Rockers has been written by five lyricists - Danish Sabri (son of Iqbal Sabri), Paresh Hingu, Prashant Hingole, Perry ji and Sajid Khan. Programmed by 3 programmers - Aditya Dev, Aamir and Ashish Seghal, the Indian Pro Music League Anthem also boasts of  one of the biggest orchestra ensembles. The orchestra of more than 80 people, comprising 40 violins and 6 cellos, amongst several other instruments. Apart from the 12 captains, the track also features the vocal stylings of the six reality stars - Purva Mantri, Rupali Jagga, Hemant Brijwasi, Salman Ali, Rituraj Mohanty and Ankush Bhardwaj who are a part of the six zonal teams.

The Indian Pro Music League Anthem was  unveiled at the Zee Rishtey Awards 2020 on 27 December on Zee TV.
