NDTV Imagine set for ‘Swayamvar – Season 2’ with Rahul Mahajan

After the success of ‘Rakhi ka Swayamvar’, this winter NDTV Imagine is ready with ‘Swayamvar - Season 2’. This time, the show will feature groom-in-waiting, Rahul Mahajan. SOL Productions Pvt Ltd, who partnered with Imagine for ‘Rakhi Ka Swayamvar’, will also produce ‘Swayamvar - Season 2, Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaayega’.

The search for Rahul Mahajan’s ideal life partner begins with a nationwide audition process that starts with a call for entries, followed by multi-city meetings and interviews with the shortlisted participants. ‘Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jaayega’ is said to give audiences the opportunity to discover the real man behind the very public persona.

Sameer Nair, CEO, NDTV Imagine, said, “It’s back by popular demand. We’re really pleased with the spectacular response to Season 1 of the ‘Swayamvar’ with Rakhi. What began as idle voyeurism quickly changed into genuine interest and a strong desire for Rakhi to find the right man with whom she could share her life. Buoyed by the acceptance, connect and success of the concept, Imagine is pleased to announce the launch of ‘Swayamvar - Season 2’ with Rahul Mahajan.”

Rahul Mahajan said, “A lot has happened with me in the last three years. Today is the start of a new chapter of my life, a new beginning. I have decided to choose my life partner on Imagine. I truly appreciated the way in which Imagine handled Rakhi’s Swayamvar with all sensitivity and seriousness, while still maintaining the elements of entertainment for the TV audience.”

‘Swayamvar - Season 2’, while following a similar format as its predecessor, will have a complete unique spin. Sixteen men were wooing Rakhi, now will 16 ladies woo Rahul or will Rahul woo 16 ladies?

The prospective brides will be brought together under one roof and will be put through a series of tasks and challenges to uncover the various facets of their personality and beliefs, and ascertain their compatibility with Rahul, assisting him in arriving at his final decision. Along the way, his friends and family will join him, helping him in his quest for his ideal life partner.
