India Cooks Up Four New Versions of MasterChef

02/08/2021

Banijay today announces a four-season commission of MasterChef in India. All four seasons will be produced by Endemol Shine India for Innovative Film Academy (IFA) and will air on the Sun Network. MasterChef India Tamil, MasterChef India Telugu, MasterChef India Malayalam and MasterChef India Kannada will all launch later this year.

Hugely successful actor, Vijay Sethupathi, will host the Tamil version; presenting MasterChef India Telugu will be well-known actor Tamannaah Bhatia; taking the reins for MasterChef India Malayalam will be hugely popular Prithviraj Sukumaran; and Bigg Boss host and actor Kichcha Sudeep, will front MasterChef Kannada.

All four iterations will be filmed on-set in Bangalore and each version will be adapted for the unique and individual cultures, food and craft of their state.

Mr. Abhishek Rege CEO at Endemol Shine India says: MasterChef has set unprecedented benchmarks globally and we can confidently say that the show's regional adaptations have surpassed the benchmark in terms of production quality, content and the contestants. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with IFA to bring MasterChef in not just one but four regional languages. We are confident that these four seasons will be instant hits amongst millions of households.

Lucas Green, Global Head of Content Operations at Banijay says: The appeal of MasterChefextends globally and its adaptability as a format allows us to celebrate unique gastronomic excellence not just from country to country, but throughout different regions. As a group, we are able to utilise our world-class local production expertise to deliver four culturally-relevant brilliant new series, while uncovering some of the best home cooks the nation has to offer.

MasterChef is the world's most successful cookery television format, produced across 62 markets. The life-changing show has broadcast more than 10,000 episodes to-date and will soon be airing its milestone 500th season globally. Created by Franc Roddam, the show is a super brand known and enjoyed around the world.

The MasterChef format and finished programmes are represented internationally by Banijay Rights.
