He told the media that Ranaviru Real Star Mission 1 was developed and organized by the Ministry of Defense and Urban Development on a concept of Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa with the support of Dialog Axiata PLC.

He said that the Ranaviru Real Star, one of the most watched reality shows in the country highlighting the hidden talents of Sri Lankan armed forces personnel would once more commence operations with Mission 3.

He added that Mission 1 was a record-breaker and the Mission 2 had raised the bar even further by providing opportunities for them to perform at international events and said that the Mission 3 promises even more.

He disclosed to the media the fact that the highly successful Ranaviru Real Star Mission 2 had received well over four million SMS’s at the grand-finale, being the highest number ever for any reality show final.

This time too the preliminary rounds would be recorded live and telecast on Sri Lanka Rupavahini with the backdrop for the episodes being locations with a military association, while the grand finale would be aired live on the same channel, he said.

The Defense Secretary had expressed his gratitude to the gesture of Dialog Axiata in sponsoring this event and for the national television channel Rupavahini for stepping in as the official media partner, he said.
