Arijit Singh has reportedly replaced Yo Yo Honey Singh on Star TV’s popular reality show India’s Raw Star, which this year will run on Life Ok. According to Mumbai Mirror, Singh quit the show last season midway due to his health. This time the show will return in a complete new avatar.
A source told the publication, It’s a new show with a new concept and will have Arijit throw challenges that have more to do with singing than performing as he scouts for new talent. He will also mentor and groom the contestants to find the winner. While the team was contemplating a new name for the show, Arijit insisted that they retain the original one as he feels it resonates with him and his journey as a singer.
Arijit Singh is a household name today. We first got a glimpse of the talented singer in 2005 when he participated in the reality show, Fame Gurukul. It was almost a decade ago. Well, news is that the singer is turning into a mentor for the second season of the reality show, Raw Star. The first season was aired on Star Plus but this one will be on Life Ok. Fans will remember that Yo Yo Honey Singh was the celeb mentor in the first season. However, the makers have to continuously bring in new mentors as he was facing severe health issues.
Auditions take place in digital format between 16th August and 2nd September 2016.
