Yes, it’s true! Cent percent true! So all your lovers of Coke Studio, get ready for some more music. The news has been doing the rounds for quite sometime but now the shoot is going to start soon. And here are some of the details that we have managed so far…

– The show will be on MTv and will start  by May-June. MTv? Do they still play music? Well, may be this will compensate for all the Roadies.

– The non-fiction division of Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment is producing the show in India.

– Like the Pakistan edition, this one will also have episodes of 1hour each and the idea is to get one new and young talent with an established name. They are still trying to sort this out.

– Talks are on to get Shafqat Amanat Ali to open the first season of Coke Studio India. He will be the only Pakistani singer in this season.

– And now the most important thing – the singers. Here’s the first list…..

  • Shankar Mahadevan
  • Kailash kher
  • Raghu Dixit
  • Shaan
  • Sunidhi Chauhan
  • KK
  • Richa Sharma
  • Bombay Jayashri

Talks are on to get few more. Can we please have Rabbi Shergill and Indian Ocean too?

And till then, dum ghutkoon….ghutkoon…

    the best news of 2011!!! this is gonna be awesome shankar mahadevan is so much fun when he performs live…..unlike composing for nikhil advanis and the likes…

  3. afzal says:

    One of the best news I heard from the point of view of Indian music scenario in 2011. Thanks for sharing it.

  4. ir says:

    wow, finally. I never thought we would get a program like this on Indian Television.

  5. Vikarant says:

    If this happens on MTV then I’ll have to start watching MTV again after like what 4/5 years.Nice to know; MTV people still remember M is for music.

    Coke studio is one of the best Asian music show.Now Raghu Dixit in it;I’m sure it gonna rock .I Can’t wait.Updates on this show will be appreciated.I don’t watch MTV at all, so might miss.

  6. saurabh says:

    so glad to hear that its being done in India finally. I just hope they dont kill the spirit of the show. I would love to see much more pan indian regional folk flavor just like the original show.

  7. rohan says:

    finally .this is a great news.this shouldn’t be too commercial the original concept shouldn’t be the same.

  8. Rohit says:

    Many people fear (and are still fearing) that it would be ‘bollywoodish’. While it would be completely stupid if it happens, with whatever I have seen present in the studio, we are going to love it!

    My pick – watch out for Tochi Raina’s version of ‘Mera yaar basenda’ (a punjabi folk song with a dash of sufism…and and…a little bit of carnatic music towards the end)

    Also, the 2 film songs which I could see were – ‘kancha re kancha re’ (sung by benny dayal and suzanne de mello) and KK’s version of – khiltey hain gul yahan…

    Too much information…sorry about it..coke studio does that to me 🙂
