Archana Jani - Karan Singh Rathore to host Zee TV New Serial Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Mega Challenge

Zee TV Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Mega Challenge

The popular Indian Hindi TV Channel Zee TV has announced their new reality TV program Hero Honda SaReGaMaPa Mega Challenge starting October 30, 2009. The finale will be in seven weeks on Dec 12, 2009 - thus marking the 1000th episode of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, although "mega" means a million. Well - it is hard to imagine a million episodes of a TV show, anyway !

The show will be hosted by two Radio hosts, called "Radio Jockey" or "RJ" in India: Archana Jani and Karan Singh Rathore.

Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, previously Sa Re Ga Ma, debuted in 1995. It is a reality TV show - a musical (singing) contest where the viewers eliminate singers by public voting to arrive at a winner. Previous and current hosts include Sonu Nigam, Amaan Ali Bangash, Ayaan Ali Bangash, Shaan and Aditya Narayan.

A related show called SaReGaMaPa Li'l Champs hosted by Dhairya Solecha and Afsha Musani in 2009 involves a similar competition but the competitors are from younger age groups - sometimes even minors. Sadly the Indian television producers and audience have so far chosen to ignore the tremendous pressure put on children by their parents and social environment at tremendous cost to  healthy development of children pushed into such competition on prime time TV just to get some money from the prizes.
