'Mayaadweepam' returns on Zee Telugu starting 3 October

The show has roped in sponsors Close Up, Dazller Eterna and Triplex detergent.

Mumbai: Zee Telugu has revived its kids reality show “Mayaadweepam” after seven years. The show will be led by Ohmkar as host along with fictional characters Pillamarriraju and Ontu Kannu Rakshasudu starting from 3 October at 9 p.m on Zee Telugu and Zee Telugu HD.

This season’s sponsors include Close Up, Dazller Eterna and Triplex detergent.

“Mayaadweepam” is an adventure game show that unearths the skills of young contestants including their physical, intellectual, satirical and educational ability. The intricately designed sets created for the show are one of the most composite setups in Telugu television. A crew of 100 members worked over 50 days to bring alive the setting, blending India’s rich mythic structures to give viewers a grand viewing experience, said the channel in a statement.

This year Zee Telugu announced digital auditions for the show. Participants between the age of 6-12 years were invited to participate in the virtual auditions and this helped the channel receive over 12,000 entries in a short period of time. The selected participants will be part of the game show where every episode will witness four different contestants. Each episode will end with a 'Showdown' in which the contestants will be undergoing various levels of challenges.

“Mayaadweepam is my dream project,” said producer and host of the show, Ohmkar. “It marks my foray into the fantasy genre and empowers me to explore further variants of content. As we march onwards, we bring together not only the show's original characters such as Pillamarriraju and Onti Kannu Rakshasudu but also the uniquely monumental set that is one-of-a-kind in the history of Telugu television. Besides, I'm happy to see the promo receive tremendous praises and I am certain that it makes for an unforgettable viewing experience."
