Fame X, with Indian subtitle Chal Udiye, was an Indian television music talent show contested by aspiring pop singers drawn from public auditions. It followed an earlier Indian singing competition and musical reality show called Fame Gurukul.[1]

2006-2007 edition[edit]

The sole season was in November 2006[2] and it extended until the finals in 2007. It was broadcast on Indian SAB TV television station. The dean of the show was Palash Sen. Auditions were held in Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai. Originally the host was Sophie Choudry, but she was replaced in later stages by Shilpa Sakhlani.[citation needed]

The weekly Fame X show was complemented with a daily Monday to Friday show entitled Fame X Academy. The winner would get Rs50,00,000 grand prize, a recording contract and MTV Artiste of the Month title where the winner would be featured for a full month.
