One of the Best Spiritual Orators of our time, popular renowned poet and judge of this show, Dr. Kumar Vishwas even mentioned, “As a poet, I feel the true essence of a devotional and patriotic song comes alive in the way a singer presents each word with the right balance of expressions and emotions which can only come from an innate understanding of our culture and this is the single-most critical aspect for a singer that helps them connect with the listener. On Swarn Swar Bharat, we are in search of a singer who combines the elements of sur, bhaav and saar. For viewers to appreciate the beauty if our devotional, spiritual and patriotic music, I will also be sharing rare anecdotes from our country's very-very rich and vivid ancient scriptures that are relevant.”
Host Ravi Kishan also added, “I’ve been a part of several TV shows, but it is the first time I have got such a unique opportunity to host a singing reality show that centres around the devotional genre and attempts to take viewers back to their cultural roots. I am also making a return to hosting after a long time, which makes the opportunity even more exciting. I have the responsibility of not only holding the show together as a sutradhar but also motivating the talent on the show. I truly believe Swarn Swar Bharat will be a show that will mesmerize one and all."
