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 rather than performing
"It's a new show with a new concept and will have Arijit throw challenges that have more to do with singing than performing as he scouts for new talent. He will also mentor and groom the contestants to find the winner. While the team was contemplating a new name for the show," a source told Mumbai Mirror.
"Very impressed with the raw intensity and searing realism in both Varun Tej's expressions and also his body language. From whatever I saw of him, Kanche trailer and Puri Jagan's scenes I think Varun Tej will be the best of all the Megastar related stars," RGV wrote on Twitter
