The new season of the popular reality TV show India’s Got Talent commenced on Saturday, April 18, 2015. Like the previous one, the sixth edition too will be judged by the popular trio of Malaika Arora Khan, Karan Johar and Kirron Kher. Nakul Mehta, who was last seen in Star Plus’ show Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara, will co-host the show alongside Bharti Singh. The model/actor, who decided to take up hosting with the first season of Dance India Dance Super Moms, replaces VJ Andy and RJ Mantra.
The show started on a good note with the judges looking forward to plethora of talent and extraordinary skills from the participants. But, to unearth a gem amid the wealth of rocks is a real task. While most contestants annoyed, bored or frustrated the IGT jury, some gifted ones dazzled. The trio were thoroughly impressed by Arjun Sharma’s unique aerial act. However, another contestant made sure Malaika, Karan and Kirron’s jaw dropped courtesy of his sensational underwater dance.
Akshay Kumar appeared on the sets to promote his upcoming film Gabbar Is Back. The Khiladi made a filmy entry by catching hold of a swindler, who was demanding bribe from a contestant waiting in a long queue for audition. Twinkle Khanna’s beau also enjoyed a funny and complete nonsensical act by two participants. While the judges criticized their act, the Rowdy Rathore star opted to encourage by labelling them as true entertainers.
All in all the sixth season of India’s Got Talent started with tremendous enthusiasm and with the promise of shedding light on the gifted ones once again! Well, the judges are having a hard time screening a hundred thousand contestants eagerly waiting to for a chance to show their skills on stage. While, Bharti took all the cheers with her comic timing, her new co-host Nakul Mehta looks promising. We hope he lives upto the expectations of the viewers. (Edited by Krishnan Iyer)
