Users from diverse backgrounds found common ground in humor, and this sense of camaraderie fostered a positive atmosphere on the platform.
A panel of esteemed celebrity judges, including the likes of Ishita Dutta, Tanvi Thakker, Aanchal Munjal, Shweta Sharma, Shivangi Khedkar, and Swati Kapoor, meticulously evaluated the submissions and crowned a monthly winner each, who received a cash prize of Rs. 15,000. These monthly winners later competed against each other in the ultimate showdown for a chance to grab the grand prize – A remarkable cash reward of Rs. 1 Lac and a coveted opportunity to feature in a music video launched by Zee Music Company.
