Eternal Dreams CEO and director Bonnie Jain said, “This is a new show peopled with the most popular faces from television. The teams are composed of the common people and that is the differentiator for the show.”


In an attempt to grab the eyeballs, the new show has roped in Sakshi Tanwas and Smriti Irani as anchors. Additionally, each episode will have a performance by a Bollywood celebrity.

The squad of celebrity mentors and their teams are as follows:

Ronit Roy will play mentor to “Bindass Bosses,” a team of white-collar workers.

Shweta Tiwari will lead a team of housewives, “Bahu Ki Behnein.”

Varun Badola’s team of senior citozens is called “Guru Kool.”
