Talking about the show an excited Farah says, “What attracted me to Lip Sing Battle is its unique fun filled concept. The idea of having two celebrities competing with each other on Bollywood dance tracks is very amusing. Their skills are tested over three different levels and the one who entertains the best, wins. Through my films I have always spread humor, happiness and most importantly – entertainment. I see the show as a platform to reach wider audience who will be amused to see their favorite stars battle it out in every possible way on national television. Yes I am looking at multiple aspects of show making, and I am thoroughly enjoying myself.”
Aradhana Bhola, Managing Director of Fremantle Media India who is producing the show, says, “We are delighted to bring Viacom International Inc.’s Lip Sync Battle to Indian viewers. As producers, we were drawn to its intrinsic craziness, over-the-top competitiveness and ultimate show-off surprises. We hope that the viewers have as much fun watching it as we have had producing it for Star Plus.”
The show also features Ali Asgar who brings comic relief with his funny antics and witty gags. He says, “I have been shooting for the show since a few days and let me tell you it’s been a blast! You have Bollywood superstars coming on sets and doing wacky stuff that you have not seen them doing before anywhere else and in between all the madness and masti, I too add a dash of humor with my gags. You will get to see me in several avatars, sporting various get ups, mimicking well-known celebrities and popular filmy characters and so on. There is a great amount of learning on the sets. I am a big fan of Farah and I love her creative instincts and spontaneity.”
