Pakistan Idol – Coming Soon

Singing talent shows have been a part of Pakistani television Industry for so long but I am sorry to say none of them clicked me and I did not watch an entire season of any singing shows. Pakistanis always lagged behind other countries in producing quality reality shows whether that reality show is of singing, dancing or physical tasks based.

All of us are familiar of singing talent hunt named as Indian Idol. Many of us also came across American and Australian Idol.Recenty, first journey of Indian Idol Junior came to ended that was surely a treat to watch.


I am privileged to announce that Pakistan Idol is about to begin on GEO TV. Geo TV ,in association with Fremantle Media, has finally got the rights of broadcasting this talent show exclusively for Pakistanis.

During last two weeks, I was thinking of writing about lack of opportunities for Pakistanis. Like in India, there are singing schools, dancing schools and what not. Whereas, our children and people are deprived of taking any recreational activity and see my wish came true. Back to Back news of MasterChef Pakistan and Pakistan Idol made me really glad and satisfied.

All we want now is to look upon the fact that who will be able to bring true form of entertainment for us. Whether it will be MasterChef Pakistan to be shown on Urdu1 or it will be Pakistan Idol that will be soon aired on Geo Tv.

imagesI am dead sure that there will be a clash of titans on weekends and those who will watch MasterChef Pakistan will be deprived of watching Pakistan Idol and vice versa. But my suggestion is, give a try to both of them. You can switch on other channels during commercials else simply download one of them from Internet.

Let’s see which talent will win people`s heart. Cooking or Singing?

Do share your views about Pakistan Idol.

    It does not seems to be a reliable news and probably fake. No doubt, Geo TV has got rights of Pakistan Idol since 2007. Similarly, Geo TV has also got rights for Channel V Pakistan. However, it is unlikely that Pakistani Idol is starting now. There are many pictures of Pakistan Idol logo floating on the web and any graphic designer can create such picture within a few minutes. There is also a video that was released recently ( but there are many mistake in the video. Any video animator can create such video. The singers shown are foreigners, the name of the show will be Pakistani Idol (and not Pakistan Idol. It was American Idol or Indian Idol and not America Idol or India Idol) and the logo of Geo shown at the end is an old logo of Geo. Compare it with the latest Geo logo and the logo shown in that video. Is there any announcement of Pakistan Idol on official Facebook or Twitter account of Geo, if the promo was shown on Geo TV or if is news or ad was published in The News or Jang? I don’t think so.

    well it would be much awaited show, especially Geo TV has the resources to advertise it on all possible form and make it a success, but who will be judges? hope they dont hire someone from india

    Just for information of readers, the first music competition show in India/Pakistan was started in Pakistan in 1991/1992, it was NTM pakistan’s first private terrestrial channel who bring forth that idea, name of that program was “Music Challenge”. The program was a great success for two three years. Many famous singers came to limelight as participants in music challenge like Naeem Abbas Rufi, Shazia Manzoor, Tanvir Afridi, Humera Arshad. Judges of this show were many respectable icons of music in our country like Robin Ghosh, Nisar Bazmi,

    Zee TV india’s famous satellite channel also started a music competition program perhaps named “Sa re ga” afterwards, which was then hosted by Sonu Nigam.
