In April 2020, Filmfare ME set to hunt for new talent from the region. The talent that was raw, untapped and raring to go! We announced a unique virtual digital talent hunt – Arab Asia Starz that focused on fashion, beauty and entertainment!
And the world responded!
Over 5000 entries poured in from across the GCC, India, Pakistan, Nepal and many other countries
Our celebrity judges that included Shruti Hassan, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Maniesh Paul, Sajjad, Delafrooz and Rizwan Sajan had a tough time choosing the winners and the Filmfare ME team worked tirelessly to ensure that all tasks were completed. Our beloved participants sent us entries from the confines of their home, owing to the Covid 19 situation. They danced, sang, walked the ramp, played music, struck poses, imitated stars, recorded filmi dialogues and took an active part in a contest that kept their hopes going! And media partners Zee Aflam TV, Zee Cinema ME, Oasis Water, Lacnor, The Art Of Shaving ME, 89.1 Radio 4 FM, Royal Bakers UAE, Gold Collagen, Splash Fashion, Khaleej Times supported us with great enthusiasm and camaraderie./
