Fusion Events has won the mandate to manage the auditions for Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L'il Champs. Fusion Events has been signed on as the exclusive event management company by Zee TV for these auditions. The auditions, which commenced on April 7 and will culminate at the end of the month, will cover the five cities of Jaipur, Chandigarh, Delhi, Indore and Vadodara.
Commenting on associating with Zee TV, Alok Tilwankar, CEO, Fusion Events said, "We have been assigned this mandate by Zee TV for the sixth time in a row and this is the result of the past event management experience they had working with us. Our responsibilities for the auditions are to handle participant management, venue management and production and artist co-ordinations in all five cities."
Further elaborating on the challenges of managing the auditions, he added, "Our strength lies in mapping the Indian sensitivities and devising events like auditions with the viewer and participant requirements in mind. Such popular shows have huge footfall and managing the crowd and maintaining the grandeur and reputation of the show is equally important. Many a time, some participants create a nuisance for which we have to be prepared in advance. Mishaps and unpredictability are a part of these events. Security arrangements for the judges is also a big task. In fact, sometimes we ourselves have to be on the grounds to see to the management."
Participants will pass through three levels before entering the show. Level 1 intends to screen about 1500-2000 participants per city. About 10-15 per cent of talent which will be retained from this total number will enter Level 2. Level 2 will have approximately 250-300 participants. 25 - 30 participants will be screened out of Level 2 for Level 3 and they will finally contest for the show on Zee TV. The participants who qualify for Level 3 will be called to Mumbai for Mega Auditions, where the final shortlisted candidates will contest for the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L'il Champ title.
Fusion Events has been associated with Zee TV for a long time. In the past, shows such as DID Season 2, DID Doubles, DID L'il Masters, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Grand Finale, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa last season auditions and wildcard entry Auditions were managed by them.
The auditions will be held across five Indian cities.
