A formal announcement of the show will be made at a press conference here on Friday, but the source, aware of the grand plans, told IANS that the show will be one live event to be telecast on the channel.
The source said that if things go as planned, international TV personality Simon Cowell, creator of Got Talent and The X Factor, may also visit Mumbai for the show, likely to be a first-of-its-kind twist on Got Talent. The live event will be held at the Andheri Sports Complex here in December.
Meanwhile, Indian television already has India's Got Talent, the desi spin-off of Cowell's show.
