This grand finale is being touted to mark a new era in reality television.
Ashish Golwalkar, Sony TV’s programming head, during a press meet said, “It is a pressure situation. You have to programme 12 hours straight and so it means you have to shoot 3 weeks of content in one go. It is maddening for the editing team, music team, costume team, and every other department. But it is also exciting.
Like I said, it has never been done before. Maybe this will mark a new era in reality TV. Coincidentally, this 15th August will be India’s 75th year of independence and Idol will also be programming its 75th episode. This is also the longest-running season of Idol. We are aiming for newer records this time around so the benchmarks will be higher for next year.”
