The success of MTV's Rock On has now prompted major GEC's to cash in on the same concept, and Rocks India
, produced by Roshan Abbas' Encompass Events Pvt. Ltd
. is a show harboring on the same lines.. It will be aired on COLORS
Rocks India will go on air on September 27th and will air every Sunday at 8 PM.
The show will have popular faces like Shaan and Vasundhara Das
as judges, while the heart throb of all girls, Karan Singh Grover
will be seen anchoring the show.
According to our source, "The channel and production house were on the look out for a girl to accompany Karan as host. The production house had even approached Shilpa Anand, the ex-Riddhima of Dill Mill Gayye to partner Karan, and recreate the marvelous on-screen chemistry that they had exhibited earlier. However, the channel did not want to cash in on past popularity, and hence wanted someone else".
News coming in now is that Manasi Parekh
, the India Calling girl has been finalized instead. "Manasi who has got back from the USA after doing a theater and drama course will be seen as Karan's co host in Rocks India", informs our source.
We tried calling Manasi, but she remained unavailable.. Well, it's time to rock on to the desi tunes on Rocks India… Reporter and Author: Ranjini Nair
