Love Me India: Mentors Abhijeet, Bhoomi, Navraj and Anusha give motivational tips to contestants

MUMBAI: &TV’s upcoming kids music reality show, Love Me India is all geared to commence on 22 September. Judged by Himesh Reshammiya, Neha Bhasin, and Guru Randhawa Love Me India is a live voting show where contestants between the age group of 5 to 15 would be divided into four different zones (North, South, East, West).

These zones would be mentored by Abhijeet Sawant, Bhoomi Trivedi, Navraj Hans, and Anusha Mani. We spoke to these mentors on how they would train their ‘zone’ kids and a lot more.

Abhijeet Sawant

I am very excited for the show. It’s, both, a different task and challenge for me. But at the same time, I have experienced everything about the reality show and how contestants feel as well as the pressure they face. Also, it is important on how I will groom my kids. At the same time 'training' part will be difficult. I also have to figure out, what is working for reality shows as well as what people want to watch. I have also told my zone kids, they shouldn’t to be scared even if they make any mistakes.

Bhoomi Trivedi

For me, it is a great opportunity to have this collaboration with &TV. After eight years, I am getting back to a reality show, where I will be playing the East Zone captain with 12 kids under my zone. I am happy and excited because they are super talented and the competition is just going to be amazing. If I feel they should improve I will tell them. If somebody else says that my kid needs any kind of improvisation then they can come and tell. I do accept comments irrespective of them being good or bad, in fact it would a lesson for my kid. 

Navraj Hans

This is my first reality show, which is not edited, but going live. I haven’t done a reality show and this is my first show for which, I am supercharged. I like staying with kids and this is an opportunity to learn from them also. Mein dilo jaan se mere kids ko support karunga, aur desi ghee khilaunga.

Anusha Mani

I am extremely excited for the show. This is such a unique concept and I am very honoured to be a part of it. I feel, nowadays, kids are very savvy and listen to different kinds of music. I think the missing link in the reality shows is contestants, judges and audience. A mentor or a captain is the missing link, where I can actually be their friend and be my kids’ support system, which they will require in the show.

I have never done a reality show in my life purely out of fear. I used to be so scared on thinking on how I will be judging or how I will I sound. But now that I am here, I feel lucky. Kids can teach you a lot, when we hang out we are not bothered about our next recording. They are just stress busters and the way they greet and talk to you, it’s such a beautiful environment. Most importantly, you have to treat them as friends. I advised them that they will have to compete with their own selves. You have to grow as an artist every day. Because you come into the world as an adult and everyone is pitted against each other, and compared to each other. Comparison can be a very dangerous thing as a child. It can kill one’s self confidence.

Well Love Me India starts from 22 September, it would be aired on &TV every Saturday- Sunday 9 pm.
