With a promise to bring cheers to all those stuck at home in some form of quarantine or the other, the first season of ‘Sadak Ka Superstar’ is all set to hit the TV screens this Saturday.
It is the first of its kind reality show made in Arunachal Pradesh.
Written and directed by Duyu Tabyo and produced by Alison Welly of Space Miracle Studios Pvt Ltd, the focus of the show is to provide a platform to the talented, irrespective of their age and background, to showcase their skills in any field they feel comfortable.
Speaking to Northeast Now, Tabyo said the show was shot entirely in Arunachal Pradesh.
“Sadak Ka Superstar is the first reality show produced by a local production house involving an entire local cast and crew,” he said.
“We travelled to every district possible to shoot the show and came across hundreds of talented people. The selection rounds of show were mostly shot on the streets as were in the hunt for raw talent,” he added.
Tabyo said ‘Sadak Ka Superstar’ is not limited to singing or dancing and the show aims at giving the people an opportunity to showcase whatever talent they may possess – folk singing, storytelling, painting, mimicry and so on.
Welly, the producer, said the show was initially selected to be telecast in DD Arunprabha, however, the ones at Doordarshan liked the idea and decided to telecast the same in the national platform.
“Besides promoting local talent, the show also gave an opportunity to the local writers, cinematographers and those with a strong cinematic potential to prove their worth,” said Welly.
“We are hoping this small effort of ours will inspire many other local production houses of the state to follow suit and also that the participants will take their passion to the next level,” she said.
“A lot of effort has been put into the show, so I hope, the people will appreciate the show,” Welly said.
The show, hosted by Bollywood supporting actress Chomina Beyong, will be telecast on DD National from June 6 on Saturday and Sunday from 11 am.
A repeat telecast would follow at 6 pm on both the days.
