According industry insiders, the channel decided to extend the show into a children’s version because there were several kiddie contestants who came to the auditions this season, but weren’t selected because of their age. One has to be over 18 years to participate in any reality show.
Another viewpoint that analysts have is that the new show is being launched to compete with Chak Dhoom Dhoom, a kids’ dance contest on their rival channel, Colors, which will be judged by Ahmed Khan, Saroj Khan and Vindu Dara Singh.
The show is expected to be on air by the week after Dance India Dance Season Two ends, in the last few weeks of March. The channel also plans to go all the way with the auditions, which will be conducted across 18 cities.
