Star India is boosting its Kannada entertainment channel Star Suvarna with the June launch of a localised version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Kannadada Kotyadhipati.

Two new fiction shows will also join the third season of Kannadada Kotyadhipati on the regional TV channel. The broadcaster is reviving the format that last aired in 2013, drawing more viewers then than any other show in Kannada.

Ramesh Aravind, who has acted, directed and produced films across five languages, will host the programme. Beyond films, Ramesh has also worked as a TV show anchor, motivational speaker, TEDx presenter and social worker.

“Star Suvarna is known to provide differentiated and wholesome family entertainment and we are excited to bring Kannadada Kotyadhipati back to the viewers. We are confident that with Mr. Ramesh Aravind as the host and the new feature, ‘Play Along’, this show will engage viewers very well, and Star Suvarna will flourish to become Kannadigas favorite channel yet again,” said Kevin Vas, CEO South Entertainment Channels, Star India.

“I am really honoured to host Kannadada Kotyadhipati. This show touches a deep chord in the viewer. It holds the promise of change, the ability to carve out a life one desires. This show is not about money, but hope and I’m humbled to be a part of the process,” said Ramesh Aravind.

Star expects the game show to further strengthen Star Suvarna, which it claims has seen a surge in viewership led by recent fiction shows Muddu Lakshmi, Bili Hendthi and the fourth season of daily reality show Pyate Hudugir Halli Life.
