Away from typical TV serials and 3 to 4 hours long mandatory films exist the concept of reality shows. When creativity lags behind in the TV serials that is the time when reality shows acquire a center stage on the TV sets of their fix audiences on Saturdays and Sundays. These are way different from those fictional shows, who are all lost in the game of TRP (Television Rating Points) and are always ready with the unnecessary twists that are not even needed.

The reality, as the name suggests, focuses on being real and completely unique for the talents and the audience. Reality believes in what is real, the reality of thoughts, skills, and aspirations. There are various parts of India where there are plenty of talents waiting for their chance and they are eager to show their potential. This is the strategy of reality shows and they want to showcase the talents who actually deserve and serve their own purpose as well by doing good for society.

Reality shows are entertainment-oriented and pick up the talents from all the stratas of life. They are more focused on showing real talents than just running on the same kind of age-old concepts.
