Indian Pro Music League ZEE5
Music follows the league pattern of sports as Zee TV is all set to launch the ‘Indian Pro Music League’ on television this month, with actor Salman Khan as the face of the show. The opening ceremony held on February 4, 2021 at the set of the league was attended by Bollywood celebrities and popular artistes.
The launch event was hosted by Karan Wahi and Waluscha De Sousa. The Indian Pro Music League will go on air on Zee TV and Zee5. Zee Studios will be the creative and production house on the show.
The championship will have six teams, each having a popular celebrity as its ambassador. Shraddha Kapoor, Govinda, Rajkummar Rao, Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol and Suresh Raina will be representing different regions of India in this musical championship.
Each of these teams will also have playback singers, one male and one female vocalist as their captains. Kailash Kher, Sajid Khan, Mika Singh, Shaan, Javed Ali, Asees Kaur, Bhoomi Trivedi, AritiKakar, Ankit Tiwari, Neha Bhasin, Shilpa Rao will be seen leading teams.
Additionally, reality stars like Hemant Brijwasi, Salman Ali and JyoticaTangri among others will be part of these teams, along with some fresh voices.
Akin to the format of a sports league, the show will have five innings comprising the league matches and a super match where audience votes and umpire points will decide the outcome of the league and declare one of the teams as the league champion.
Aparna Bhosle, Business Head, Zee TV said, “Over the years, we've seen how league formats have become immensely popular amongst sports viewers and as a country where cricket is nothing short of a religion, audiences at large have embraced and internalised this exciting format. With the Indian Pro Music League, the idea is to infuse the space of music reality television with the same energy and competitive spirit that is typical of a sports league. The quotient of excitement and anticipation is enhanced by top Bollywood stars and sports celebrities owning the six teams that will compete in the championship. While we have the top playback singers of the country as our team captains and rising reality stars on board to ensure the highest bar of excellence in the music the show will produce, we're on a quest to find new talented singers from across the country through an intensive scouting initiative as Zee TV has always believed in leveraging the strength of its reality formats to give the common man an opportunity of chasing his dreams.”
Karan Wahi said, “I hosted the previous season of DID on Zee TV and it’s always good to be back. Indian Pro Music League is a unique concept and I am quite excited to host a star-studded show with all these phenomenal singers and big Bollywood celebrities on board. I was really excited when the makers approached me for the show and I took it up at once.”
