Disney Channel hunts for India’s own ‘Hannah Montana’

For all Indian tweens aspiring to be pop stars, Disney Channel is offering a platform through the Hannah Montana - The Big Pop Star Dream contest. To take part in the contest, participants would have to sing and groove to any Hindi movie song at an audition to be held in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Hyderabad starting May 17.

Antoine Villeneuve, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Walt Disney Television International (India), said, “The Big Pop Star Dream is a natural extension of the channel’s philosophy of being a part of real kids’ lives and inspiring them to achieve their dreams. Disney Channel’s tween audiences idolise Hannah Montana and this is their opportunity to interact with the show and the star in an inimitable way.”

Anushka Manchanda, star of the Viva band, would be the celebrity judge for this competition and would help select one contestant per city after reviewing the four-city auditions.

Disney Channel would fly the four semi-finalists to Mumbai to give them a complete makeover and record the ‘Hannah Montana’ title track in Hindi. The vignettes of these four semi finalists’ performances would then be aired on the channel for audience poll. The final winner would get to star in the title montage, which would play before each episode of the new season of ‘Hannah Montana’, and would also be flown to the US to meet Hannah Montana herself, besides featuring on the cover of the ‘Disney Adventures’ magazine in India.

One lucky fan among the Disney Channel viewers, who participates in selecting the final winner through votes, would win a chance to accompany the contest winner on this trip to meet Hannah Montana. Other prizes to be won include guitars, accessories and loads of Hannah merchandise.
