The grand final of Jammu and Kashmir Police’s flagship singing competition Choona Hai Aasman shall be held at Sher-i-Kashmir International Convention Centre SKICC, Srinagar on June 15, 2013.
The programme was conceived in 2010 and a talent hunt was started to identify the budding artists in all districts of the state, which gives “platform and proper direction to the talent of underprivileged children”.
“The show that traverses to the entire length and breadth of the state, starts at each district where more than three to four thousand artists simultaneously perform in all the 25 districts of state under the supervision of District Superintendent’s of Police,” the police spokesman informed.
Consequently more than one lakh aspirants compete for the top slot in male and female category of singing, as per the spokesman.
“The winners of each district are then called at the Range Level, that is combination of three districts and compete under the supervision of Range Deputy Inspector General of Police,” the police spokesman informed.
Those selected in the Ranges then compete at the Zone level for the best three slots in junior and senior categories and then progress to the finals i.e Jammu Zone Vs Kashmir Zone to determine the winners and thereby showcase the best talent of singing in the state.
“The endeavour has been bringing good results and the winners of our state level competitions have competed at the National Level in the famous reality shows on satellite channels also,” the spokesman informed.
This year, district level, Range level as well as the zone level Competition of Choona Hai Aasman Season-III have already been conducted.
