Zee TV's 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' ends on the highest note

As a heady climax to an immensely successful season of India’s biggest singing reality show, Zee TV’s ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ Grand Finale held in Goa has broken records. Delivering the highest ratings for a non-fiction episode (HSM) across Hindi GECs since the inclusion of rural in the BARC measurement system (Week 41’15), the show has garnered 12983 Impressions’000. It is the No.1 Talent hunt show & the highest rated Finale across Urban with 7392 impressions’000 in Week 29’16 (17th July 2016) from the inclusion of LC 1 in the BARC data (from Week 41’15). Produced by Essel Vision, the current season is the highest rated finale of ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ in the last 8 years.

Akash Chawla, Zee TV & Zee Studios Business Head said, “It is after a very long time that a singing reality show has broken records on television. ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’ is not only an asset for Zee TV but also for the industry that has gained exemplary talent from the platform season after season. The success of the current season also infuses the belief that reinventing formats that meet audience expectations in today’s fragmented scenario can deliver superlative results.”

At the Grand Finale, the entire nation watched with bated breath as the journeys of the Top 5 finalists of ‘Amul Sa Re Ga Ma Pa powered by Flipkart & driven by Hyundai’ inched their way to an exciting culmination. Amidst great frenzy in Goa, Kolkata’s 17-year-old Kushal Paul walked away with the coveted laurel.

The power-packed Grand Finale was graced by the show’s mentors Pritam Chakraborty, Sajid-Wajid and Mika Singh, show host Aditya Narayan, the jury members, lead pair of Marathi movie ‘Sairat’ –Akash Thosar and Rinku Rajguru, Jay Bhanushali, singing stalwarts Kailash Kher, Sukhvinder Singh, Ayaan & Armaan Malik and Benny Dayal as star attractions.
