India’s Got Talent Season 8 to go on air in October
After a break of two years, India’s Got Talent is back on Colors with Season 8. The judges, Kirron Kher, Karan Johar and Malaika Arora Khan remain the same. The show will be hosted by popular hosts Rithvik Dhanjani and comedian Bharti Singh.
Indian Express quoted a source saying, “The team has already started auditioning. The show will go on floors by end of September and should launch in the second week of October. It will air at 10 pm, post Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 12 Weekend Ka Vaar. With it launching after a break, the makers are leaving no stone unturned to make it a grand season.”
However, buzz suggested that Rithvik’s girlfriend, Asha Negi will also be part of the show but the daily’s source clarified, “Asha is only part of some promotional activities that the channel has planned during city auditions. Since Bharti is yet to come back from her Khatron Ke Khiladi schedule, Asha joined Rithvik for the auditions.”
Sonali Bendre, Shekhar Kapur, Sajid Khan and Dharmendra have also judged the show before. While Kirron has judged the show ever since it started, Karan and Malaika joined the show from season 4 in 2012.
The show was launched in the year 2009 and is produced by Fremantle. The show is open to all age groups and all categories- solo, partners and groups.
