    There's a floating rumor it's Tano. Take it as a living joke though given how many overseas fans want her.:awesome:

    Yep.

    All apart Aki-P's World Domination (Why I'm not going to be surprise if we get LAX48, NYC48, and or VAN48).

    That's why I was asking, 'cause I heard that as well. But the same joke went flying about for TPE and BNK, so I don't want to think too much about it unless it really gets confirmed. So for now, I don't believe it

    For real?

    The market K-pop dares not to venture, the market the local think it's impossible to be penetrated 'coz music charts are dominated with Bollywood OST?

    I doubt about Aki-P/AKS' sanity that they make a group in India. I also doubt about that making a group based not in East or Southeast Asia is a good idea.

    BTW, there're 2 JKT48 members that adhere Hinduism. Yeah, they're Balinese, not Indians.

    It's always the foreign country that sends a proposal for an overseas sister group to Akimoto, not the other way around.
    So the correct question would be, why did Indians choose the AKB format?

    I'm Indian lmao
    Well, AKB's official YT channel uploaded a video of an Indian fanclub covering KFC, iirc. (EDIT: see this) Also, AKB's popularity in India increased slightly after MAMAs.
    Indians admire Japan a lot lol

    And Mumbai? Seriously? That place is filled with all kinds of Bollywood crap. India's kinda like China; no real music industry but a big film industry, no music charts, piracy (people rarely buy CDs/DVDs) and people care more about OSTs. If SNH48 worked in China, then this might work, too.
