Commenting on what viewers can expect, Mookrey says: “It’s such an exciting show, creating a virtual venue for anyone whose heart, mind or imagination is captured by the East. It’s far more than a lifestyle show – rather a platform for rising stars, established heroes and anyone who aspires to add quality to life. Mela has a colourful Indian look, feel and flavour – but is also a gathering of the extended South African family. Think Indian food, fashion, arts and lifestyle…”

Mookrey explains what Mela means: “It is originally a Sanskrit word meaning ‘a gathering’, but can also be used for a street party, a fair, a cultural or spiritual festival, an arts event or a multi-day show with a broadly South Asian theme, open to the general public. It’s therefore the perfect name for our show.”
