Zee 5 very proudly today launched Lockdown and i was very gladly part of this great launch. Lockdown is a path-breaking concept in collaboration with renowned rapper and composer Badshah, ofcourse my favorite these days. The show marks Badshah’s debut as a producer under his banner Afterhours.
The show was launched at Agnee, The park in the presence of artists Badshah, Kailash Kher, Bryden-Parth along with few other dignitaries.
Premiering on 17th August, Lockdown will launch with two episodes followed by an episode every week featuring two artists – a Bollywood sensation and a digital superstar. Over a 10-episode series, the show will feature Badshah – Jonita Gandhi; Kailash Kher – Raja Kumari; Harrdy Sandhu – Neha Bhasin; Raftaar – Thaikkudam Bridge; Monali Thakur – Mickey Singh; Benny Dayal – Bryden & Parth; Shirley Setia – Sachin & Jigar amongst others.
Each duo is locked together in one location for 24 hours to recreate two songs, record them and shoot music videos. Lockdown has been shot across scenic locations in India and promises a rendezvous with your favourite musicians – one that has never been seen before
Badshah, who turns producer with the show said, “Lockdown is a project that is very close to my heart since it’s the first offering from my production house Afterhours. The format is quite unique and fun because we have got several well-known artists to collaborate with each other and some of them had never even met before! But all of them have been quite enthusiastic and the result that has erupted out of the oneness of these Bollywood and Digital sensations is something that the audience is going to love. To be aired on ZEE5, the show is sure to be a hand’s down winner for the music aficionados.”
I cannot wait for it to go and stick to my TV set with excitement and tons of popcorns!
