"While Arijit will add the raw element and mentor the contestants, Shraddha will add glamour to the show," said a source in the know of developments.
"Arijit's most popular songTum Hi Ho was picturised on Shraddha and they share a good bond. She is currently in South Africa for Half Girlfriend, but once she is back, they will lock things and start shooting," the source added.
Shraddha could be a perfect fit for the show as she is herself a talented singer. She sang Galliyan for her film Ek Villain and it turned out to be a rage.
Raw Star is not a sequel to India's Raw Star, and will bring forward a new concept and new challenges with the focus on singing ability rather than performing. The musical show will beam on Life OK.
