UTV, after the stupendous success of their unique reality show Dance India Dance on Zee TV is geared up for its next ventures on television, something that has never been tried on Indian television before.
According to our source, Bimal, Non Fiction Head, UTV who has been a pioneer in the creation of Dance India Dance, is developing three one-of-its-kind reality shows which will hit the television screens in the coming months.
Elaborating on the concepts that UTV plan to give the audience, our source states, "One show will be a dream based reality show for which UTV is shooting its experimental runs. Talks are on with a topmost channel too, and the show will see the light very soon. The second show is an adventure and thriller based show which will be stunt-based, risky and spectacular in all aspects. The third one is a sociological show, which motivates the common public to bring out their inner self".
"The common traits though, with all the three realities lined up of UTV are that the concepts seek to bring out the real reality on television, something which has never been attempted on television till date. Also, another high point is that these shows will tap the zeal and enthusiasm of the common man and will not be celebrity based", adds our source.
If our sources are to be believed, UTV is in talks with three top most channels for these three projects, and if all goes well, viewers will be seeing the first of their shows launching in August or September.
We tried calling Bimal, Non Fiction Head, UTV but he remained unavailable for comments..
Well, expectations are high after UTV's Dance India Dance redefined the meaning of reality shows, and we certainly look forward to shows that bring with it something unique and fresh!!
