Popular actors look dapper in black suits with thick mustaches. The game show MEK- Meelo is the rehashed version of Evaru Kooteshwarudu, which aired earlier on Star Maa.
Junior NTR recently shot for the show’s teaser and other promotional material. The promo was directed by popular filmmaker Trivikram Srinivas at Annapurna Studios, produced in a special set.
Like the latest season of Kaun Banega Crorepati, due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the producers of the Telugu version also plan to hold the show following all the COVID-19 protocols.
Auditions will be conducted virtually in both Telugu speaking states. Junior NTR’s MEK is slated for a 60 episode run in the upcoming season 5. The new season will air on a separate General Entertainment Channel (GEC).
