The auditions for the show will be open to people of all ages and will be held in four cities - Ahemadabad, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai.
A spokesperson for the channel said contestants would be judged by celebrities like singer Shibani Kashyap and actor Ravi Kishan along with voting by viewers. The winner will walk away with a cash prize of Rs 25 lakh.
"After Big Boss, nothing excited me to appear on television. But the human connect of this reality show is unbeatable, which is why I couldn't say no to it," Ravi Kishan told PTI.
TV actor Gaurav Gera, who confesses to be a talented bathroom singer, will host the show.
