Come March and Sahara Manoranjan joins hands with Percept D’Mark to launch a nationwide talent hunt ‘Mr & Ms Bollywood’. The purpose is to discover 30 potential film stars. This will be followed by road shows hosted by film personalities.

Percept D’Mark will conduct and supervise the logistics of the event, which is being supported by Sahara Manoranjan.
