Story of poetry
Finally a TV Reality Show that is different both in title and content show Mein Khayaal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka, Mujhe Sochta Koi Aur Hai commissioned by & for DD-Urdu Channel. In the literal sense it is the poet who weaves thoughts into words but it is the singer who lends his voice to the composer’s creation and adds emotions to the written word. So the show is a combination of Shaayri/Ghazal/Classical singing on the same platform by artistes under 25. What makes the show further interesting is that it will be introduced by eminent personalities like Bashir Badr, Javed Akhtar, Ustad. Ghulam Ali, Shabana Azmi, Pt. Nayan Ghosh in a section called ‘Khaas Mulaqat’.
The 18 participants will be judged by a panel of judges like Prof. Waseem Barelvi, Kavita Krishnmurti, Devaki Pandit and Mentors like Ustad Maqbool Hussain, Seema Sehgal and Ibrahim. Mein Khayaal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka, Mujhe Sochta Koi Aur Hai launched on 19 January.
