Bollywood director Madhur Bhandarkar and actress Sonali Bendre are set to be the judges for Sony Entertainment Television's new talent show Mr. & Ms. TV.
The show is specially designed for the small screen glamour brigade and the most talented and multifaceted personalities will emerge winners.
Shonali Nagrani, who has previously anchored Star One's The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, will be hosting the contest. The show will be aired on the channel March 24 onwards at 10 p.m. and will stretch over a period of two weeks.
The six women who will be competing for the title are Nausheen Ali Sardar, Aashka Goradia, Jasveer Kaur, Purbi Joshi, Priyanka Bassi and Shilpa Saklani.
The men who will be participating include Chetan Hansraj, Kushal Punjabi, Karan Wahi, Karanveer Bohra, Swapnil Joshi and Sanjit Bedi.
Chetan, who plays Sasha in Balaji Telefilm's Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, is excited to be part of the show.
"I felt that the concept of the show is different and interesting. They told me that there would be a lot of dancing, singing, acting and other stuff, so I jumped at it. Besides, there were no hassles with the dates," he told IANS on phone from Mumbai.
New pairs of the celebrities will be formed for each episode and they will be asked to prove their mettle in singing, dancing, mimicry and voice-overs. The grand finale of the show will be telecast April 6.
