Another season, another chance to discover new talent. After a break of almost two years, the eighth season of India’s Got Talent is returning to Colors TV on October 20.

Airing every Saturday and Sunday at 10pm in the UAE, the show will see Kirron Kher, Malaika Arora and Karan Johar reprise their roles as judges on the talent show.

This year’s highlights include performances from a techno act, bike formations by women from the Central Reserve Police Force, water aerial acts, a spellbinding Illusionist, Malkhambh and for the first time – a 3D projection and holographic interactive acts.

“I eagerly await every new season because I love the courage and determination that the participants display in order to achieve their dreams, especially those who come from small towns and cities,” Kher said. “Over the seasons, the show has witnessed unique talent that has also represented the country on international platforms. I’m proud to be associated with the show for all the 8 seasons, since its inception in India.”

The show follows similar formats of other "Got Talent" competitions around the world in which artists perform in front of judges and a studio audience while going through rounds before a winner is decided. A 13-year-old flute player named Suleiman won season 7 of India's Got Talent in 2016. He took home the prize money of Rs 50 lakh (Dh249,000) and a Maruti Suzuki Celerio car.
