After being a judge on Sony Entertainment Television's Indian Idol and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, director Farah Khan is now the judge of another reality show but on another channel. Apart from the interesting concept, the reason Farah's doing the show is because she has been offered a whopping amount. Last week saw a promotional shoot for the reality TV show at Mukesh Mills with Farah and the other two judges Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani.
It's a singing based show and has the winners and runners-up of all former reality shows like Fame Gurukul, Indian Idol, Sa Re Ga Ma, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, Bathroom Singers, Voice of India and others all coming together on a common platform to showcase their singing skills.
Says a source present during the promo shoot, "Vishal-Shekhar and Farah will be judging all the previous winners and losers of the reality music shows every Friday on Star Plus. The show will air April onwards for three months, which suits Farah and Vishal-Shekhar.
While Farah is busy with her triplets, the music directors are busy with their commitments. Farah was heard saying at the shoot that she'd start her film only next year. This year, she will be doing lots of TV shows and endorsements."
Farah's brother Sajid Khan is hosting a similar reality TV show called Ustaadon Ka Ustaad for Sony TV. The show will be shown for six days and will end with a grand finale. It comprises the contestants of most of the reality shows which have appeared till now including Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, Nach Baliye, Comedy Circus, Laughter Challenge, Indian Idol, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and Little Champs but the difference is that UKU will have dance, singing and comedy while Farah and Vishal-Shekhar's show will only have singing.
