Hrithik goes all out for TV debut

Actor will promote upcoming dance reality show with three videos, will also pay surprise visit during one of the initial auditions though it isn't part of his contract.


Apart from filming a music video with the winner of his first dance reality show, Hrithik Roshan will shoot four music videos, which will be aired regularly on several channels, including the show's broadcaster, as part of the show's promotion. Currently, the channel's creative team, and a team from Fazila Allana's SOL Productions, the show's producer, is working on the concepts of these promotional videos.

“We're still unsure about the fourth video. We may just have three videos and one grand finale performance by Hrithik. It all depends on how the logistics work out because Agneepath's shooting is on in full steam,“ says Monica Sheirgill, senior creative director, Star Plus. “As for the videos, we're working on something exceptional that not only presents Hrithik in an altogether different look but also takes the audience's interest to a new high.“

It is learnt that the videos will release after IPL's fourth edition wraps up towards the latter half of May.

However, Sheirgill informs, “Our show is slated to be on air sometime in June. Since the initial buzz will have to start much earlier. The first video, in all likelihood, may break before the cricket tournament wraps up. The other videos will be released later, when the show enters level two, three and four.“

Buzz also is that the actor, who hasn't been seen at any of the small tier city auditions of the dance reality show, will soon be paying a surprise visit during one of auditions in a big city. Incidentally, this is not part of his Rs 112 crore deal with the channel for this show.

“Hrithik is very excited and so are we. We only wanted him to be present at the mega auditions but he will pay a surprise visit at one of the level one auditions, which will happen over the next few weeks,“ adds Sheirgill.

Wouldn't that create security issues for the actor? “That's our primary concern which is why we don't want him to travel to every other city. Right now we are working out his security arrangements and also deciding a suitable date because we wouldn't like him to juggle with his on-going shoot,“ says Sheirgill.
