Zee5 Canada Dancing Star to Air Soon on Zee TV & Zee5


A Virtually Shot Local Dance Reality Show

Zee TV Canada & Zee5 brings to you, ‘Zee5 Canada Dancing Star,’ the first of its kind interactive and virtual participative show, by any media company in Canada. The show is an earnest initiative and attempt to thank the community for their loyal viewership over the years. In one of the biggest talent hunts, auditions for the show finalized contestants from Brampton and Toronto to Vancouver.

During the lockdown, when viewers were confined indoors battling the COVD-19 pandemic, India’s leading TV Channel in Canada, Zee TV, and their fastest growing digital arm OTT, Zee5, conceptualized and executed, ‘Zee5 Canada Dancing Star,’ a lively and locally driven contest to support the South Asian community in Canada. Dance plays a dominant role in keeping the community together, preserving the culture across generations. The first of its kind dance competition, the show offers delightful opportunity for Bollywood, and dance enthusiasts to showcase their best dance moves from the comfort of their homes, through video auditions on social media.

Varied dance forms have now evolved over the years into modernized versions, blending Bollywood, Bhangra, and traditional dance forms with hip-hop, reggae, and free style. Over 3 decades Zee has been synonymous with producing and launching shows that change and challenges the norm of the Entertainment industry. With ‘SaReGaMaPa,’ India’s first singing reality show, Zee TV set the benchmark, and launched some of the legends of Indian music industry today. Zee TV’s ‘Dance India Dance,’ changed the face of dance reality shows in India and paved way for all future and current Dance reality shows in India. To add to the thrill, Zee TV has signed up two of the most prominent and influential names in the Entertainment industry, Mr. Tarun Khanna and Mr. Sanjeev Jimmy Wadhwa. For two decades now, Tarun Khanna is a well-known familiar face on Indian Television. He is famous for and holds the record for playing Lord Shiva in more than half-a-dozen mythological shows. Sanjeev Jimmy Wadhwa is a certified bhangra instructor in Canada and founder of ‘Sanjeev Jimmy International School of Dance and Performing Arts.’ Surrey-based TV presenter and radio celebrity Gaurav Shah brings his wit and humour to the show, as the anchor along with popular professional Bhangra dancer and TV host, Jashanjot Kaur.

With this initiative, Mr. Indrajit Majumdar, Sales President for Zee – North & South Americas, wishes to revolutionize not just global television but also promote local talent.

“We are looking to engage local audiences in many more ways in the coming years with multiple such initiatives. In keeping with our belief of consistently providing innovative content, we are bringing Canada its very first video Dance competition on television. Given the pandemic, and current social distancing norms, the show is shot entirely from participants’ homes,” he said.
