aha, the local OTT, is presenting the second season of musical show ‘Telugu Indian Idol’.
From undiscovered talents to seasoned pros, the show promises to unearth the best singers from the Telugu-speaking world, all while keeping the audience on the edge of their seats.
As per the platform, the show grabbed the eyeballs of people across 190 countries last year by showcasing the culture of the Telugu-speaking states through music.
In season 2, aha is opening the doors for talented singers to reach new heights and shine on a global stage from smallest of towns all the way from Telugu states to United States and UK.
As per the platform, more than six thousand people have given the auditions this year, and the 50 selected contestants will get a chance to sing before the panel of judges - which includes musical icons like SS Thaman, Geetha Madhuri and Karthik. They will also be seen evaluating every singer's performance and progress throughout the season and helping them turn into a Telugu Indian Idol.
Hema Chandra, on the other hand, will be seen as the host of the show.
Ajit Thakur, CEO – aha, stated, "Telugu Indian Idol successfully started a legacy last year that inspires and resonates with millions of people across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. In fact, we saw new levels of fanfare for the show in 2022. To continue entertaining our audience and providing talented individuals with a platform to showcase their talent again, we came up with a new season that is much bigger than before. With a lot of expectation from the consumers, we wanted to give Telugu Indian Idol the perfect launch, and hence, we decided to organise a unique press conference unveiling the set and the judges."
Thaman said, "Telugu Indian Idol has been very close to my heart because I have been associated with it since the first season. I feel emotional and proud that the show's second season is being launched. No singing reality show celebrates music like aha does with Telugu Indian Idol, and I'm confident this season will raise the bar higher."
Madhuri stated, "Music has been my way of life since my childhood, and I'm honoured to be able to share my experience with the budding singers coming on the show. This season will truly be epic, with much importance given to quality and taking singing and the show's production value to the next level. The heart-warming stories of the contestants will also inspire many people across the country."
