Buoyed by the success of its two music hunts, Indian Idol and Fame Gurukul, Sony Entertainment has decided to pull off a massive stunt by getting stars from both the shows together for a â€˜whopping finaleâ€™.
â€œWeâ€™ve selected five contestants from Indian Idol Fame Gurukul each and put them together for a stunt called Dus Ke Dus Le Gaye Dil,â€ discloses Sonyâ€™s executive vice-president Tarun Katial. â€œWeâ€™ve no qualms in admitting itâ€™s a stunt. But a very viable stunt, youâ€™ve to admit. Everyone is interested in the Idol and Fame finalists. Look at Abhijeet Sawant and Qazi Tauqeer. Qazi may not be a fantastic singer. But heâ€™s a star! Weâ€™re proud to have produced these bright young stars and now theyâ€™re going to come together for a whopping finale of sorts.â€
Incidentally, Indian Idol winner Sawantâ€™s album Aapka Abhijeet has made him the largest-selling pop artiste of India, ahead of his idol Sonu Nigam. The Dus candidates ready to croon are Prajakta Shukre, Aditi Paul, Harish Moyal, Rahul Saxena, Ravinder Ravi, Arpita Mukherjee, Shamit Tyagi, Arijit Singh, Mona Bhatt and Anubhav Suman. The show goes
on air from November 4 every evening at 8.45 pm till November 18.
