Vishal Dadlani Is The Most Loved Mentor And Judge On Indian Television Today

It seems that Indian Idol season 11 has got one of the finest start today with some outstanding performances by contestants in the auditions.

Amongst the few who stood out were Sunny and Azmat Hussain. Sunny is a shoe polish guy from Punjab who sang an impeccable rendition of Nusrat Ali Khan’s song Afreen Afreen.

Judge Vishal Dadlani too was impressed with his rendition but made him sing another song in his own style. Listening to the young boy, Vishal encouraged him and gave the golden mic which is a ticket to the theatre round directly.


While on the other hand, Azmat Hussain was already a winner of a kid’s singing reality show. He disclosed that he was taken into bad habits and hence was still struggling in life. Azmat’s voice was not upto the mark but he was given a chance by Neha Kakkar and Anu Malik to the next round. But to our surprise, he looked disturbed and felt it was a sympathy gesture by the judges and did not want to pursue singing further in life. At that time, Vishal who had said a no to him; steped in and said that he is just 18 and too young to lose hope. Vishal added that “we singers are one family & community and we need to be there for one another always. And as I am a senior to you in this family of singers, I order you to get up, buck up and show your best in the next round.” These words of encouragement have made his fans go crazy and in the true sense increased the benchmark of the show.

Vishal Dadlani proves that he is the best mentor and judge on Indian television today.

IdeaRack Private Limited aims to bring ideas to life which can serve both brands and media companies to create value for their business. It is an endeavour to create an ecosystem where ideas can urge and their metamorphosis can give birth to new ideas in a systematic and organised manner. They create ideas that matter, uniquely crafted for the relevant platforms like Films, TV, Digital, Animation, Gaming, Apps, or AFP. IdeaRack believes that content is the reason search began in the first place as they endeavour to service the need gap where insight based, differentiated content will help engage brands more emphatically with their audiences.

Their maiden show Tara from Satara is one of its kind show as its narrative is presented through an interesting combination of Drama + Reality (Dramality), a first on Indian Television. The show is conceived by Saeed Akhtar with Hemant Ruprel and Ranjit Thakur as Producers. It is the joint production of Saeed Akhtar and Aisha Faizan under their banner IdeaRack Pvt Ltd and Frames Production company pvt ltd.

Actor Eva Shirali will be seen essaying the role of Tara’s mother while Amita Khopkar will be seen as the doting Ajji.

Saeed Akhtar, Co-Producer, IdeaRack Pvt Ltd says, “Tara From Satara has been one of the most inspiring shows for us to bring forth as it not just highlights a new concept but an entirely new genre Dramality (Drama +Reality).”

“The show is an interesting story of a teenager finding purpose in life. Each one of us have gone through a phase in our teenage years where we were clueless about life on the whole. Some supported us in that phase, some didn’t. We always had that one friend for whom we meant the world. We all have had an older sibling who was a benchmark of everything good. Tara from Satara brings alive these bonds and moments beautifully,” he adds.

Actor Roshni Walia, says, “I have met the producers from IdeaRack Private Limited, I liked them since I feel they are risk takers. They have created a unique and a very realistic show.”

He was so clear about his vision that I had no second thoughts about playing the character of Sachin Mane. I feel that if I am able to play the character of Sachin Mane so well, the entire credit goes to him.”

“Tara from Satara was his dream project and he know exactly how he wanted to execute it right from how to design the characters, locations, costumes and even the background score of the show,” he concludes.

Perhaps I was destined to play the character of Susheel: Prachi

Known to bring forth refreshing plots and striking stories, Star Plus is set to air a new show with Prachi Tehlan in the lead. Ikyawann, which will be telecasted during prime time, traces the story of a girl raised by four fathers. While promoting her upcoming show, Prachi mentioned that she feels very connected to her character and also that she was destined to play this role.

‘My character Susheel is very similar to who I am in my real life. Just like Susheel, I preferably wear loose fitting clothes and dress up like boys. Both of us are aggressive personalities with a kind heart. Also, Susheel is confident, big time foodie and loves her father more than anybody else. That’s so like me,” says Prachi.

Prachi was a national level basketball player before she stepped in the television industry. Interestingly, as the story progresses, viewers can see Susheel turning into a sports person as well. Speaking further, Prachi mentions about the concept her character believes in. “Susheel always says that ‘Jo wrong hai wo wrong hai…aur Susheel kabhi wrong nhi hone deti,’ to which I can associate myself.”
