Influence of Reality Television on Indian Talent

By Danish Khan Subscribe to RSS | March 24th 2012 | Views:

The recent years have seen a sudden surge of reality television in India and around the world. With a special impetus on India’s talent shows, these programs typically revolve around highlighting real stories of ordinary citizens competing on a public platform for monetary awards, fame and a break in the glamour industry.

These shows have played a significant role in influencing the change that’s recently occurred in Indian television. At the same time, social experts and critiques have mixed feelings about whether or not this method of showcasing talent to Indian audiences is justified or not.

Handling the Limelight

A large number India’s Talent Shows have open doors to contestants of a very young age. Though it is a matter of pride to recognize singers, dancers and all kinds of artistic performers of all age, gender, cast and creed, there is always the lingering question of whether or not the limelight that they are exposed to is too much to handle for the common man.

Back in the days, when there was no reality television to showcase your talent and present yourself to the world, artists would typically start slow and at the bottom and work their way up to the top with tremendous passion and determination to succeed.

Today, reality TV stars are thrust into the public with barely any prior notice or preparation and without the benefit of experience that comes with the journey of making it to the top. It is palpable that even the most grounded artist may get drawn to the world of glamour and let the fame get into their heads before they even know it. On top of that, the entire journey of the star is showcased to the audience making him or her famous even before they make it to the top.

Equal Opportunity for All

Having said that; the fact remains that reality television has opened doors to talented people from across the country, which typically would never have been in the position to enter the glamour industry. Every popular talent show like India’s Got Talent, Dance India Dance and even the original Sa Re Ga Ma Pa dissected the country in search of true potential and offered an equal platform to contestants with a future. Today, many of these winners and contestants have grown to become leading artists in their own respective fields.

With the right opportunity to show to the world what they can really do, India’s talent shows offer the common man a rare opportunity to showcase to the world and taste success. For example, it isn’t cake walk for a singer to strike a deal with a record company. But a large number of record companies choose to now track contestants on these shows which exhibit a little bit of potential and provide them with a platform which would in a traditional scenario be much more challenging.

In spite of all the speculation behind the genuine nature of reality television, the convenient editing of footage and the impact of these shows on Indian culture in general, one cannot deny the positive impact it has grown to have for the millions around the country with the big Bollywood dream.
