According to our source, "Mithun Da will apparently hand over the duty of judging the kids' reality show to Farah Khan. Sandip Soparrkar who has presently joined the team of mentors in the audition phase will be seen assisting Farah. Sandip will be a guide to the contestants, and will also be seen judging them along with Farah".
"Little Masters will have a different concept, and in all probability will have four contestants (from Season 1 and Season 2 of Dance India Dance) taking over the responsibility of mentoring the kids. Though the final concept has not been derived at, it looks as though each of the four contestants selected, will be given four kids each. Jai Kumar Nair has been finalized as one of the mentors, but the other three names are not yet clear. The channel is looking for two little twins to host the show", adds our source.
We called Ashish Golwalkar, Non-Fiction Head, Zee TV who said, "Yes, we have approached Farah Khan as the judge, but other celebrities have been approached too".
But our source maintains that Farah has given her nod, and will be seen judging Dance India Dance Little Masters.
