MTV Splitsvilla Season 8Theme unveiled; And this season it is Sunny Leone and Ranvijay pepping up the contestants


MTV the most followed youth brand unveiled the theme of the 8th season of its popular reality show Splitsvilla.

 Men, especially Indian men, require a little bit of orientation and education on wooing women in the correct way. This has become more important because we live in times which demand men to become gentlemen and treat the women right.


This necessary but fun education can range from teachings on grooming, basic values, some help with mental evolution, perception and outlook, the correct things to say and do, the perfect gifts to buy, and more. And who better than Sunny Leone and Rannvijay, to teach the same to the boys on Splitsvilla!! Splitsvilla 8 is therefore aptly tag lined this time with ‘The Way to a Woman’s Heart’.


To launch the great, cult show a virtual short version of the show was shot and packed the concept into a fun, entertaining music video. A song called ‘What women love’ contains various fun suggestions on ‘what you should learn about what women love to woo them’. Sunny Leone and Rannvijay are seen as a couple cutely dancing and romancing each other, playing out the various suggestions in a Broadway style stage-play, with Sunny leading the suggestions because she knows best, whereas Rannvijay is the good boyfriend who is seen doing the right thing.


The 2 minute music video has been produced in-house by MTV’s Creative Team lead by Keegan Pinto. Its music and lyrics too have been created by Keegan Pinto and the exciting and fresh avatar of a Splitsvilla launch film has been directed by the talented Shai Samtaney.

MTV Splitsvilla 8 surely promises to be something exciting and strike a chord in the hearts of the Indian women.
