Vijay TV will launch a new reality show titled Ungalil Yaar Adutha Prabhu Deva (Who amongst you is the next Prabhu Deva), which will hunt for Tamil Nadu’s next Prabhu Deva.
The new show, which will hit the airwaves in August, will be on air every Thursday and Friday between 9 pm and 10 pm. Amul has been roped in as the title sponsor of the show.
K Sriram, head, Vijay TV, said, “There have been dance competitions on Tamil television before, but Ungalil Yaar Adutha Prabhu Deva is a notch above the rest as its endorsed by the greatest dancer of our times, Prabhu Deva. This show would for sure redefine prime time viewership in the state, and we hope it to be a great success like our earlier reality shows.”
The show would provide a platform for people in the 16-35 age group to showcase their dancing prowess, which will be judged by Prabhu Deva himself. The ace dancer and choreographer is considered as India’s answer to Michael Jackson and has choreographed over 100 movies in many Indian languages, including Bollywood.
Vijay TV will conduct auditions in Chennai, Coimbatore, Madurai and Trichy for the new dance show. The selected contestants from each zone would then be put through several competitive rounds in various styles of ‘desi’ and international dance forms and the winner would be adjudged by Deva himself.
