Some shows become popular, a few others attain cult status, but very rarely does a show become an institution in itself.Season after season, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa has not only reinvented music but brought the entire nation together to celebrate pure, unadulterated singing. After the raging success of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs last year, Zee TV is back with an exciting new season of its most iconic singing reality show. With the core thought of music for all – #MusicSeBaneHum, the new season will celebrate music as the one universal language that unites mankind and propels it towards growth. Sending out a strong message of all-inclusiveness and standing up against discrimination over caste, creed, colour, community, religion, and sexuality, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa will focus its spotlight on talent alone. This philosophy of the show is brought alive through its catchy, clutter-breaking jingle ‘HaregaHarega’ that declares discrimination to be the prerogative of losers and music as the only winning proposition that looks beyond these trappings and recognizes true talent. Produced by Essel Vision, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa premiered on 13th October and airs every Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 PM only on Zee TV. To promote the show, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’s judge and the multi-talented singer Wajid Khan visited the city today.
Guiding and grooming the young talent in their journey to becoming India’s musical doyens will be three supremely talented mentors who have been instrumental in taking Bollywood music to unforeseen heights. Wajid Khan has been an integral part of the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa journey, having judged previous seasons and now alongside Sa Re Ga Ma Pa veterans – the widely popular singer-composer Sona Mohapatra and the charismatic singer-composer-actor ShekharRavjiani. Along with the mentors, an esteemed panel of 15 music connoisseurs- experts from the music fraternity, will play the role of the jury and assess the aspiring singers right from the audition stage and help mentors in selecting only the best. Returning as the host for this season will be young and dynamic singing heart-throb Aditya Narayan who never fails to charm the audiences with his wit and easy-going camaraderie with the mentors.
Mentor Wajid Khan said, “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa is special for me because I have been a part of the show as a judge for 3 seasons. I am looking forward to a whole of a lot of fun, interactivity and mentoring the contestants to achieve the extraordinary this season. The competition has certainly become tougher and moved several notches up therefore we have a much bigger responsibility to select the very best out of the best. Every year, the show sets new standards in terms of talent and overall presentation. I am on a lookout for a voice that not only is powerful but also diverse and captivates the audiences. I am happy to be in the city of Nawabs and Kebabs, Lucknow. The city offers rich heritage and royal legacy and it is always an absolute delight to interact with the crowd here. Their energy is matchless and exhilarating!”
