Hero - Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2012[1] was the fifth instalment of the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge series. It premiered on 29 September 2012 on Zee TV. The show was hosted by popular singer Javed Ali.


Over 1,20,000 auditions were conducted in New Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata to select 100 contestants. Out of these, the top fifteen then competed for a position in the top ten for five weeks, two contestants being eliminated each week for three weeks, and one each for weeks 4 and 5. In the fifth week, three of the eliminated contestants won back their positions in the top ten by defeating three other contenders, to make up the final list of top ten.

The top ten then went on to compete in a contest to be decided by viewers through voting. This segment witnessed one elimination every week, until four contestants were left. The winner amongst them was announced in a Grand Finale episode. The contest was won by Jasraj Joshi, with the second, third and fourth places going to Shehnaz Akhtar, Vishwajeet Borwankar and Mohammed Aman respectively.
