Mumbai, 13th August 2014: “These are not just any contestants. They are already stars because of their immense talent. I feel they are all original performers, and are already better than me!” says Yo Yo Honey Singh who now begins his quest to find India’s Raw Star.
India’s favorite/ No. 1 entertainment channel Star Plus and India’s biggest youth sensation, Yo Yo Honey Singh have come together to launch this first of its kind, unconventional singing reality show,  which is all set to redefine the genre.  This weekly show will launch on Sunday, 24th August at 7 pm on Star Plus. Contenders from across the country with their unique singing styles will battle it out to become India’s Raw Star. Yo Yo Honey Singh will be  a friend, mentor and guide of the contestants. The show will be hosted by the gorgeous Gauhar Khan, who is also a huge fan of Yo Yo Honey Singh.
Everything about this show is different and unconventional.
Unlike all other reality shows, where the audition process involves standing in long queues, India’s Raw Star conducted the first ever digital only auditions.  People from all over the world sent in their video entries, which were personally scanned by Yo Yo Honey Singh and his team.  The show won’t have the standard 3 member judging panel, nor a Jodi of funny hosts and definitely no contestants who only know how to rehash popular Bollywood songs. Everything about this show will surprise you!  
The look and feel of the show will be a visual treat for the viewers. They will also for the first time get to watch these performers sing original songs, which have been composed and written by them.
For the first time ever, an Indian singing show will introduce the concept of music choreography!  Star Plus has roped in international choreographer Michael Schwandtl who has worked with artistes such as Katy Perry and Lady Gaga on their performances. He will work with the contestants to visually enhance their singing performance and make it a delight for viewers to watch.  The show also has the celebrated Ashish Manchanda on board who will be heading the sound team. Ashish is the only Indian sound engineer to have worked with Michael Jackson and has worked on a number of international music shows.
Produced by Gajendra Singh’s – Sai Baba Productions, India’s Raw Star is on the lookout for the ultimate performing artist who can create their own inimitable style of singing, and is an all-round performer irrespective of the language of singing or the genre of music.
Speaking about the show, Gaurav Banerjee, General Manager, Star Plus said, “Star Plus has always been at the forefront of creating benchmarks. With India’s Raw Star, we are trying something unique in the singing reality show genre. The attempt is to reach out to the youth of this country and who better than the biggest youth icon, Yo Yo Honey Singh to take this ahead. This show will change the visual and music grammar of singing reality shows in India. All the 10 performers are very talented and Yo Yo Honey Singh has handpicked them so that the audiences get to see pure & raw talent.”
Yo Yo Honey Singh adds, “The talent on India’s Raw Star is unadulterated, just like maa ke haath ka khaana and I have tried my best to bring to you the best. It was a great experience to visit the homes of some of these contestants and pick them up as one of the top 10 for the show. It’s a path breaking show that will break all stereotypes about talent shows.”
Commenting on the show’s concept Gajendra Singh said, “The concept and format of India’s Raw Star is designed in a way that the audiences get the feel of a live music concert while sitting back in the comfort of their living rooms. Yo Yo Honey Singh has been brought on board to mentor the contestants and handpicked the 10 contestants from across and we have some really great talent on the show.”
