During India’s freedom struggle there were leaders who were a part of the revolutionary movement and there was Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar who was revolution by himself. He changed the face of Indian society by providing a platform to the Dalit & socially downtrodden communities. He also designed the Constitution of our nation that shaped the democratic values of our country. From being a jurist, economist, politician, social reformer who inspired the Dalit movement and campaigned against the social discrimination prevalent in Indian Society.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar – Ek Maha Manav Ki Maha Gatha is an adaptation of the Marathi show aired on Star Pravah. It promises to keep the viewers intact with its robust content. It highlights the issues of untouchability and casteism that was prevailed over the years. This story is not only about a man whose life is irrevocably altered by a single event but also about the effects of a system that thrives in oppression.
Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar who represented the Dalit community highlighted the point stating that ‘The riches can isolate and can snatch our freedom, money, respect, etc but not Education.’ Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar thus is not just a leader figure but a Godly figure for many.
Commenting on the launch of the show, a Star Bharat Spokesperson said, “Babasaheb was a great social reformer, educationist and politician. The show has done well previously in Maharashtra and hence we at Star Bharat felt that a story so inspiring deserves to be told to a larger set of audiences across the country. The show Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar – Ek Maha Manav Ki Maha Gatha narrates the inspiring journey of the life of the great leader and resonates well with Star Bharat’s ideology of ‘Bhula De Dar Kuch Alag Kar’. During this lockdown, it is our responsibility to provide our audience with positive & inspirational content. We believe that this initiative taken by the channel will be much appreciated among our mass audience.”
Sagar Deshmukh who is essaying the iconic Ambedkar character says, “I was honoured and blessed to get the opportunity to play such an iconic character. The man who has done so much for the country in terms of removing untouchability, changing the working hours, support in women empowerment, a renowned scholar and much more. It took a lot of effort to get into the skin of the character. The efforts paid off when the audience liked my work. The show is dubbed in Hindi and will be coming on Star Bharat. I am nervous and excited again. I hope the audience will share the same love and support.”
