ABP News revamps programming, launches weekend show with Anupam Kher
MUMBAI: Hindi news channel ABP News is revamping its primetime programming. After launching ‘Jan Man’ in weekdays, the Hindi news channel has launched a new show titled ‘Bharatvarsh’ with actor Anupam Kher as anchor.
The show will air every Saturday at 10 pm and Sunday at 8 pm.
ABP News had earlier launched its 9 pm news bulletin ‘Jan Man’ with Dibang. The show talks about the big news of the day and its impact on the common man’s life. It airs from Monday to Friday at 9 pm.
‘Bharatvarsh’ will take viewers on a journey from ancient India to the 19th century by showcasing the life stories of India’s major figures who had a defining impact on the formation and evolution of the country.
‘Bharatvarsh’ will present thoughts and ideologies of varied personalities. The programme will cover icons like Buddha, Kabir, Chanakya, Maharana Pratap, Shivaji and many more. The series will aim to explain how these ancient, historical individuals have been interpreted in modern India and continue to impact and inspire lives.
Anupam Kher said, “‘Bharatvarsh’ will go down as one of the most memorable shows in the history of Indian television. This is a show about the personalities that shaped India. Our great civilisation, history and culture are recreated through some never-heard-before real stories. The grand cinematic production and meticulous research will dazzle you and each episode will leave you filled with more pride for India.”
“News is a cluttered space with virtually no differentiation and this has always been the challenge for the industry. At ANN, we are committed to challenging ourselves all the time to differentiate and to bring out something new for our viewers and advertisers. ‘Bharatvarsh’ is another innovative show backed by extensive content research and high-end production quality,” said ABP News Network CEO Ashok Venkatramani.
ABP News managing editor Milind Khandekar said, “We are thought leaders in the news television industry, ‘Bharatvarsh’ will prove this once again after the grand success of ‘Prandhanmantri’ and award winning series ‘Ramrajya’. This programme will make history relevant for all of us.”
