DESERVING: The chosen finalists.Search for the best

Saibaba Telefilms Pvt Ltd, which brings to its viewers South India’s biggest music reality show, concluded the selection process for the same in a grand Mega Audition recently. Produced on an unprecedented scale, the show will air on Udaya TV. The programme seeks to promote and search for the best musical talent in Karnataka. 

After successful preliminary auditions in Mangalore, Shimoga, Hubli and Bangalore, some of the best voices of Karnataka were heard at Shree Krishna Kalyana Mantap, Bangalore in the Mega Audition. Judged by the distinguished Praveen D Rao, the Mega Audition proved to be a symphony of the finest voices in the State. 

The show will see six stalwarts of the Kannada music industry competing with each other, heading six teams, each captained by a singer, who has already won the hearts of the people, from other reality shows. The six teams shall be joined by the exceptional few chosen at the Mega Audition.

Heading the teams will be three time Karnataka State Award winner, Nandita; the noted film music director, Gurukiran Shetty; playback singers Chaitra H G and Hemanth B S; the multi-faceted Rajesh Ramnathan and gifted singer, L N Shastri. This will truly be the clash of the titans where the icons of the Kannada music industry will challenge each other to make their team supreme. Expressing their delight at the immense talent they got to hear in the Mega Audition, the team captains present on the occasion commented, “It is a pleasure to be associated with a production house known for its cutting edge creative solutions and we look forward to mentoring the finalists selected at the audition.” With six teams, six music maestros, six star singers and 12 new talents, all we can say is let the war begin.

Perfect vamp

Aanchal Dwivedi, who plays the character of Meena in Sony’s Godh Bharai, is a very different person offscreen. Earlier too, we have seen the actor in Saat Phere playing the vicious Kaveri, who meddles with other’s life and keeps poking her nose around in other people’s businesses.

Says Aanchal, “I am not at all like this in reality. I am only bothered about my own life and I don’t like to interfere in anyone’s business as I do onscreen. As I was in boarding school for around a decade, I never had a chance to interact with outsiders as my school was very stern about policies and regulations. I think that’s the reason I am highly reserved. But yes, I did enjoy my school days. It was fun being in boarding.”
Discussing the roles being offered to her, Aanchal says, “I am dying to play a positive role. I don’t know why I get to play a vamp always. Maybe I am too good at it. That’s the reason the production people choose me only for negative roles.” Don’t worry Aanchal, positive or negative; it’s the craft of acting that finally matters!
