Rising Star 2 is the beginning to ascertain the fact that a housewife making food in the kitchen, a rickshaw driver ferrying people to earn bread and butter or even a small food delivery boy also has the power and the talent to woo the world. It is the stage to tell the world your fight against domestic violence, or being a single mother or how your financial background cannot stop you from becoming the next Rising Star.

Commenting on the launch of the show, Raj Nayak, COO – Viacom18 said, “Be it lifting the barrier on a common man entering the Bigg Boss house to now lifting the Rising Star Wall for pure talent to shine through, it is our constant endeavor at COLORS to shatter stereotypes and shift paradigms. The success of this season of Bigg Boss is the testimony to the same and we hope to continue engaging with our loyal viewers across the length and breadth of the country with good content.”

Returning to the expert panel are singing samrats Diljeet Dosanjh, Shankar Mahadeva, and Monali Thakur, while Ravi Dubey and child artist Parth Dhamija step in as the hosts for this edition of the show.

Said Shankar Mahadevan, “I truly believe what you think, is what you become – it’s simply a matter of the thought process that is involved, coupled with a strong sense of willpower. We have seen so many touching stories on this edition of Rising Star of singers who fought all odds to be able to perform on this stage. Be it cast, be it gender, be it what your family or the neighborhood feel – these contestants have triumphed over all such stigmas and simply won our hearts with the sound of their melodious voices.”

Returning to the expert panel, Diljeet Dosanj said, “Everyone has dreams but it is the passion, zeal and a commitment to succeed that sets real talent apart from the rest. This season is inspiring as we get to meet some stellar performers who have faced extreme difficulties but have never given up on their hope to Rise as a Star.”

Echoing similar sentiments said Monali Thakur, “Music according to me and the reason why it's a part of my life is that I believe music and good sound together can heal a person mentally. Music is a therapy and it brings me immense pleasure to pursue an art that plays such a vital role in helping people emotionally.”

With no barriers to age or background, the show is open for participation be it a Solo, Duet, and Group/ Band performance. It is their voice and their ability to entertain and engage audiences LIVE which will earn them national glory; every vote in their support holds the power to change their fate instantaneously.
