The first season suffered due to Honey Singh's health issues
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.
A source told Mumbai Mirror, “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.“
It seems digital auditions, open for aspiring singers from both India and abroad, will be held from August 16 and September 2. The singer refused to comment on the same.
Replacing Yo Yo Honey Singh with Arijit Singh seems to be an interesting move. Both have totally different personalities. Further reports say that Arijit Singh could make as much as Rs 10 crore as a mentor from this series. Stay tuned for more updates…
