Best of Sony TV’s Reality shows: Indian Idol, KBC

 Among all of TV channels’ main attractions, Reality TV shows have of late, become a large part of our lives. They have set high standards by showcasing awe-inspiring talent and moving real-life stories. These shows garner a lot of viewership and are widely loved.

Reality shows are not just about the formats or content, but also the participants. The inspiring journeys of the contestant’s tug at our hearts and this is one of the reasons why there is such a deep connection between the audience and the show. Voting for our Favourite contestants and showing support to them online is a way of sending them love. We smile with them, cry with them, and celebrate their victories. We look forward to going home after a long working day to sit with a bowl of snacks and watch our favorite contestants perform.

Two such chartbuster shows of Sony TV are Indian Idol and Kaun Banega Crorepati. They have managed to keep the audience hooked to the screens for many years now and still remain on the top.

Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 12

Amitabh Bachchan’s KBC, Season 12 premiere aired on 28 September, with the tagline "Jo bhi ho, har setback ka jawab comeback se do" and looks like the show is living up to its tagline. The pandemic called for minor changes in the format and the filming occurred without a studio audience, but it continues to entertain.

For the first time in the history of the show, a contestant came to the hot seat without playing the Fastest Finger First round, as there were no other contestants left. The show has had four crorepatis so far. However, no one has been able to crack the 7-crore question yet.

Indian Idol Season 12

Indian Idol, is another such show which brings entertainment season after season. Contestants from various states and corners of India are auditioned and talented singers are selected. The show gave birth to a lot of amazing singers and performers, who reached heights thanks to their talent. Every season, a panel of supremely talented musicians judges the performances and mentors the contestants.

Amidst the pandemic, the show provides a much needed and melodious musical treat. Taking on the mantle as judges, youth icon Neha Kakkar, renowned music composer-singer Vishal Dadlani and veteran music director-singer Himesh Reshammiya, Indian Idol, season 12, is hosted by Aditya Narayan.
