Zee Marathi's singing talent reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa is back after 4 years as the last season was telecast in 2013. The show will now start with knockout rounds staring from Monday, 4th December. The show also introduces a new 3rd judge in the form of National award winning lyricist and singer Swanand Kirkire. The audition rounds were judged by National award winning Director Ravi Jadhav and National award winning Singer Bela Shende.
This season of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa has a theme of 'Ghe Panga Kar Danga'. Rohit Raut is the anchor of the show, who is returning on the show almost after 9 years, when he last participated as a kid on the show's little champ. The main aim of this competition is to find a perfect singer who not only knows the 7 melodies but also knows how to manage the performance.
About judging the right talent Ravi Jadhav said, "We have auditioned almost 5 to 6 thousand singers in the whole Maharashtra and Goa. 84 came to Mumbai out of which 36 are going to be participating now in knockout rounds. This stage of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa has always given great singers, so we are looking for a playback singer who will be successful for the years to come. My aim is to find the perfect voice which will suit for playback singing."
About the quality of current participants, Bela Shende said, "This season's participants have the right balance for old and new songs. They are able to perform both old and new songs with same aplomb and zeal. So we have the participants who are singing Natya Geet, Bhav geet as well as rock & Pop. So I will say that the participants are multi-dimensional and multi-talented. I am glad to judge these fantastic new talents who want to prove themselves on the biggest platform for singing."
The new judge Swanand Kirkire said, "I had started recently following the show, so I will judging the participants with new perspective. I am excited for hearing the new talent."
How he will motivate the participants who will get eliminated? Anchor Rohit Raut Said, "I participated on this platform 9 years back and the stage has become brutal this season. The rules has changed and the singers will have only one chance to prove themselves. Either you will go to next round or you will go home. But if you are eliminated that does not mean that you are a bad singer. On that specific day, your performance was not upto the mark. So don't get disheartened and try harder in life to achieve your ultimate aim."
About the current young participants, the music instrument players said, "It is very interesting to listen the golden age songs from the young singers. They are very talented to sing these retro songs perfectly and we are confident that these young singers will shine bright in this season of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa."
