The format captured the attention of the viewers, resulting in three more successful seasons - Season II, III and IV. Each season contains 40 episodes, which are presented once a week on Saturdays at 10pm for 30 minutes. With the onset of each new season, innovative concepts were appended. World renowned celebrities – actors, chefs, DJs, entrepreneurs, Heads of State etc – were met and interviewed. The classiest events in Dubai – be it fashion shows, luxury product launches or polo matches - were captured. Celebrities from Hollywood or Bollywood who visited Dubai opened their hearts out on this show.
