MTV launches web series ‘MTV Unmasked’
MUMBAI: MTV has launched a special web series ‘MTV Unmasked’, giving youth a platform to voice their opinions without inhibitions.
The 16-part series will reflect the opinions of four rebellious youngsters who discuss topics that are relevant and pressing for the youth of today while wearing a mask. The show aims to break taboos and make every voice count, encouraging the youth to believe in their thoughts and be tolerant of varying opinions.
MTV Digital head Ekalavya Bhattacharya said, “We are 500 crore voices, each one with a unique opinion about current issues. We at MTV believe that these voices have a right to be heard. Through MTV Unmasked, we wish to provide a platform for the youngsters where they can make their voice heard. While we don’t endorse the opinions but the fact remains that some of these issues need public opinion and open discussion.”
The youngsters discuss issues that plague them but which are never spoken about openly. The masks give them the freedom to unhesitatingly share their opinions without fearing any societal backlash or criticism. Belonging to different professional and social backgrounds, youngsters give their unique opinions about issues while withholding their identity.
Each episode of the weekly series will touch upon a different topic relevant to the youth, many of which are considered taboo. The episodes will be featured on the official page and the videos will be shared across MTV India’s social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
The show is presented by MTV Act, the channel’s pro social platform for the youth.
