MTV Splitsvilla, the reality show where you must fight for love, is now giving you a chance to be part of it. Now in its sixth season, the show is all set to include one direct entry from its online community through the ‘MTV Splitsvilla Battleground’. The MTV Splitsvilla Battleground is an exclusive digital platform created for the fans who cannot make it to the auditions. Going by the success that the channel’s flagship show ‘MTV Roadies’ found with MTV Roadies Battleground, MTV hopes to rope in the same amount of online enthusiasm from MTV Splitsvilla Battleground.
You need to register at a page on the official website and then perform tasks as given by the show’s anchor Nikhil Chinapa. Besides, you can also visit the MTV Splitsvilla Facebook page though the action isn’t happening there. A Facebook app ‘Splitsvilla Casting‘ lists the steps to go about for the online auditions. Talk about why you want to be a part of the show, share hot pictures of you, or optionally you could introduce yourself in a short video and send it along with your contact details to the given email ID.
Having a 2.3 million strong Facebook community to its side, the show has leveraged it well with informative and engaging updates. The page has been regularly updating about the show and the progress of the entries received. The self-introduction videos submitted by the contestants have been shared on the wall, encouraging fans to participate and do better.
There seems to be an increase in the number of television shows going digital and reaping the online fan base. Even auditions are happening online. Last year, Zee Marathi, the regional language channel from Zee, had set up Facebook auditions for its dance reality show ‘Dance Maharashtra Dance’. An extensive app on the Facebook page helped to take submissions and spread the word in the network.
This is the first time for MTV Splitsvilla Battleground but the website already boasts of a good response from the fans.
