MTV pulls a Launchpad, it’s MTV ROCK ON !
May be it’s not the channel that i used to watch back in 93 when MTV first launched in India, Still remember how they really ‘Supported’ Indian Bands back then, Still remember how Indus Creed’s ’Pretty Child’ got repeated telecast. Now that spiltsvilla and MTV roadies have taken over music , and the music content is further suppressed to just 25%, which is of course from Bollywood ( Not that I am complaining, MTV owns VH1 as well) . Adding to the long list of reality shows , MTV has a new one and it’s Channel V’s Launchpad Clone , titled ‘MTV ROCK ON!’ . Auditions will be held in Kolkata on 9th July, Delhi on 12th July, Bangalore on 15th and Mumbai on 19th .. ( Sorry Chennai, even MTV has abandoned you ) . Ram Sampath , the Legendary Singer from COLOURBLIND will be judging along with Kailash Kher, and VJ Nihkil . For more details log in to mtv.com/rockon .
Update : Apparently this is not a clone of Launchpad, this is the desi version of ’Making the band.
