Re-named Hindustan ka BIG Star, in its eighth season, the show will continue to bring talent from the Hindi heartland to the world at large, providing them with a great platform and giving brands an interesting engagement opportunity.”

Combining the biggest melas and cities of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and Madhya Pradesh, Hindustan ka BIG Star will bring forth hidden talent from across the Hindi heartland.
