Waar Parriwar was a singing reality television show that aired 3 days a week (Monday to Wednesday) on Sony TV in 2008. It featured Bollywood's actress Urmila Matondkar as the host, and Jatin Pandit as the in-house guru and trainer to the competing families. Starting on July 9, the show aired 2 days a week instead of 3 days due to the launch of a new reality show Kabhi Kabhii Pyaar Kabhi Kabhii Yaar.
The show is a unique show which seamlessly blends, family bond with their love for music. It followed the journey of families from across India – their trials and tribulations, highs of victory and disappointment of defeat, their love for each other during tough times and eventually culminate in finding “Sangeet Ka Naya Gharana”. The families competed against each other to win the title of best "Sangeet Ka Naya Gharana".
The show was judged by different celebrity judges each week and by India’s foremost music families combined with audience voting.
- The wildcard entry took place on Monday July 14 in which Ali Ghani Parriwar and Ramshankar Parriwar (now known as Shambhu Pandit Parriwar) have won among all other participants.
