Over the last three decades, Zee TV has been a pioneer in shaping the contours of reality television in India, introducing audiences to homegrown non-fiction formats like Antakshari, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, Dance India Dance and India’s Best Dramebaaz.

These properties have not only emerged as immensely popular talent-based reality TV franchises but also continue to rule audience hearts, enjoying a robust following after years or decades. In fact, earlier this year, DID L’il Masters was launched and has been an audience favorite.

And now, after receiving an overwhelming response to the previous two seasons that introduced audiences to some truly exceptional moms whose dancing skills can give the young a run for their money, Zee TV is set to launch the third edition of its popular non-fiction property,  DID Super Moms, which will air from July 2.

This season will see a fresh panel of judges, who will be guiding the talented women through their journey and helping them achieve their dreams. The new panel consists of Bhagyashree Dassani (of Maine Pyar Kiya fame), who will make her debut as a reality show judge, Remo D’Souza, who will also be judging DID Super Moms for the first time, while Urmila Matondkar will be returning as a judge on a Hindi GEC reality show after 15 years.

The TV audition rounds will see talented women putting their best feet forward to impress the judges. In fact, a 76-year-old contestant, Lakshmi, came to audition along with her children, and her energetic performance left everyone stunned.

Hailing from Amravati in Maharashtra, Lakshmi’s spirit and strength were applauded by all, especially because she danced with more passion than women half her age. She performed to the popular Marathi song, Zingaat, followed by Bhangra moves on Sauda khara khara and her moves even got the judges grooving as they even went on stage and danced along with her.

What’s more, Lakshmi, like any grandmother to her grandchild, gave each judge Rs. 10 to buy sweets for themselves as a blessing!

Bhagyashree mentioned, “Aaji mazza aali (Grandma, I had great fun)! I’m truly amazed to see how energetic and enthusiastic you are. I have seen so many performances today and a lot of contestants have requested for water after their performances. But, I am amazed to see that, despite your age, you performed with twice their energy and didn’t even ask for water.”

Remo added, “You are truly an inspiration, and your energy is really amazing. I have received so many awards and money over the past decade, but this Rs. 10 is special and precious for me.”

As we all know even better now, age is just a number!
