Ghosh who also directed ‘Jhankar Beats’ and ‘Home Delivery’ is now producing the film himself after the Sippy banner backed out.

Viva was composed of the winners of the first season of Indian version of an international television talent show and eventually disintegrated after two releases,”Hum naye geet sunaye” and “Chori chori aankhon se.”

“I am really scared of swimming and under water stunts are the biggest nightmare for me.I hope I will over come my weakness on this show.

Talking about the reality show she is starring in,the singer feels that her strongest contender is Jessy Randhawa.

“Though I am still very much a part of the game till now but Jessy is a complete surprise package for me. I think she is my strongest contender.” adds Anushka.
