Commenting on an all-new season of India’s Got Talent, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head – COLORS said, “The beauty of India’s Got Talent is that it just lets you be. It doesn’t try to restyle you. Hence the focus is purely on what you bring to table in terms of your talent. It’s the only credible platform that the country has which gives opportunities to the uniqueness in an individual. As we venture into the by-lanes of India in search of the best, with a promise of larger than life performances, we promise to create an unparalleled viewing experience for our discerning audience.”
Judge Karan Johar said, “India’s Got Talent is the one show that consistently changes the fortunes of its participants. This year, we’re going beyond convention to celebrate the choicest talent which has the ability to stand out and claim its spotlight. We are all set for a talent-filled ride as we delve deeper into the country and take India’s Got Talent to a performer’s backyard.”
Speaking about her longstanding association with the show, Kirron Kher said, “Every time I come on the sets of India’s Got Talent, it feels like this is where I truly belong. This year, there are some performances that we’ve never seen before including sky-diving and ice-skating. I’m looking forward to another wonderful season, my seventh, with some excellent and path-breaking performances.”
Adding further, Malaika Arora Khan added, “India’s Got Talent is all about unrestrained entertainment. Every year the varied talent has raised the bar of entertainment, and this year is no different. The calibre of talent is astounding and an absolute treat for the senses. I can’t wait for the show to kick off and the viewers to experience the brilliance that our country has to offer.”
Commenting on the show, Aradhana Bhola – Content Head, Fremantle India Television Productions Pvt Ltd., “In its seventh season, India’s Got Talent’s search for superlative talent has taken us to the smallest towns and villages including Loharika in Punjab and Nunerbhari in Bengal. With double the dose of entertainment, drama and never-seen-before spectacles, the show will be a treat to the audiences’ senses. We hope that the show’s larger-than-life backdrop and nation-wide search for superior talent will enthrall viewers and keep them glued to their television sets.”
