SONY TV has launched two brand new weekend shows

Sony Entertainment Television (SET) has launched two brand new weekend shows - 'Champion Chaalbaaz No.1', a fun-intended show based on American original Pranksters and 'K for Kishore', a musical talent hunt.

'Champion Chaalbaaz No. 1' is a reality-based comedy format show that will bring 33 contestants. Theses contestants will be judged by a live studio audience and Cyrus Broacha and Saajid Khan, who will judge and critique them on their skill. The show starts from December 22, at 10.00 pm.

Each episode will showcase 3 pranksters who will pull off an individual prank followed by them getting together to pull off a combined prank. Every episode will also feature a celebrity prank. While the pranks may seem mean, it’s all in good humor and without malice making for a great laugh.

Albert Almeida, Executive Vice-president and Business Head, Sony Entertainment Television, said "SET has in keeping with its promise been very innovative in breaking new ground in the comedy genre with a very successful season 1 of Comedy Circus. With 'Champion Chaalbaaz No. 1', Sony Entertainment Television aims to further explore the genre by bringing out the mischievous side of the common man and promises to keep viewers’ tickled and entertained."

'Champion Chaalbaaz No. 1' is the Indian version of the international format Prankstar from Endemol India. This format show is simultaneously launched for the first time in India and the US. SET continues its partnership with Endemol in providing formats like this, having successfully launched shows like Bigg Boss, and Fear Factor in the past.

On the other hand, 'K for Kishore', will try to relive the times of the legend Kishore Kumar. Come December 21, every Friday, Saturday 9.00 pm, a few selected young men, who have tried to master the voice of the legendary singer over the years across India, will compete to be crowned Kishore Kumar's 'Heir Apparent' – a voice that is closest to the legend.

'K for Kishore' is a music reality show, which will run over 10 weeks (20 episodes), with 12 contestants, all professional & seasoned singers, competing and aiming at being the voice closest to that of Kishore Kumar. The judges for the show are popular music director and singer Bappi Lahiri who knew Kishore da as a friend and musician, singer Sudesh Bhonsle, who completed all Kishore da's incomplete film songs after his death.

Adds Almeida, "'K for Kishore' is a truly exciting concept that will bring back the magic of the legendary Kishore Kumar. 12 great singers handpicked from across the country will re-create this magic and compete to be his ‘singing prodigy’. The journey of finding Kishore’s ‘Singing Heir Apparent’ promises to enthrall audiences and help them connect and relive the glorious era of the legendary Kishore Kumar."

For 'K for Kishore', SET has once again partnered with production houses Miditech after Indian Idol (1, 2 and 3). SET through its marketing and promotional efforts with its partners Radio Mirchi and IBN 7 promises to take this popular show across the nation.
