COLORS’ is set to launch the second season of its dance reality show Dance Deewane. With ‘Yahan Deewangi Nahi Kisi Ki Kam… Dekhenge Kis Generation Mein Hai Dum’ as its core philosophy, the new season will have fresh new talent from three different age groups competing for the coveted title to become this season’s ultimate Dance Deewane.
The contestants will have to embrace challenge as the elements of ‘play, pause, and rewind’ will determine the contestants’ future in the competition. While ‘play’ will take them ahead in the show, pause will give them another chance to impress the judges and rewind will land them in danger zone. The fabulous triad, Bollywood’s dancing diva, Madhuri Dixit, ace director Shashank Khaitan, and choreographer par excellence, Tushar Kalia will reprise their role as judges while the television heartthrob Arjun Bijlani will be back as the host. Produced by Dreams Vault Media and Presented by Colgate, Dance Deewane will premiere on 15thJune 2019 and will air every Saturday and Sunday at 9 pm on COLORS.
