We hear that the channel has approached Geeta Kapoor, Marzi Pestonji and Remo D'Souza to mentor the new series. Grandmaster Mithun Chakraborty is expected to be part of the show.
Our source states, "The contestants from Season 1 of DID like Siddhesh Pai, Jai Kumar Nair, Salman, Prine, Alisha, Mayuresh, Vrushali have been approached. From the Season 2 of DID, Shakti Punit, Dharmesh, Binny, Kruti, Amrita, Amar, Kishore have been offered to be part of the show. From DID L'il Masters, Avneet, Atul, Vaishnavi and Jeetumoni will most likely feature as contestants in the new format".
The show in all probability will see the Season 1 contestants competing against the Season 2. The channel has approached both Jay Bhanushali and Manish Paul as hosts, and one among them will be finalized. Shweta Salve is supposed to be the co host.
We tried calling Ashish Golwalkar, Non Fiction Head, Zee TV for a confirmation but could not get thro' to him.
