March 15, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): The show has got a rowdy name but Bindass and Endemol India have come up with a very noble idea for their third season of Dadagiri. The show will hunt for 10-12 participants who’ll be trained as an army cadet.
“Dadagiri 3 – commandos against terrorism is slated to come post IPL. This time the contestants will be trained as commandos at the Army quarters in Tarkarli, Maharashtra. 10-12 guys will be picked across the country. The channel and the production are mulling over the fact of inviting kin of those who have lost their life to terror. Perhaps, the winner may not only win cash but also become a commando. Vivaan Bhatena will be hosting this show,” said a source.
When contacted, Bhatena agreed to hosting this show but refused to divulge much detail. “Yes, I’m hosting the show but I don’t have much idea of the concept except that we’ll be travelling to the Army centre in Tarkarli,” said Bhatena.
We tried contacting Endemol India country head Deepak Dhar and even sent him a text message but he didn’t reply.
