The show Ek Mahanayak – Dr. B.R.

Talking about this new offering, &TV business head Vishnu Shankar said, “Dr. B.R. Ambedakar laid the foundation of a unified India by bringing millions of Indians under the ambit of one nation and one constitution. His teachings and philosophy still resonate with the Indians across the country, even today. His ability to challenge and mobilize a revolution that redefined the democracy for the Indian soil made him the greatest leader of our times. We are proud to present a show on Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, which is, in fact, a first for the Hindi GEC space. I’m sure his story will inspire and touch the hearts of Indians far and wide.”
Adding further, SOBO Films Director Smruti Sushilkumar Shinde said, “Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian constitution popularly known as ‘Babasaheb’ was a great social reformer, educationist and politician. The life of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar is an inspiring story of struggle from his birth till his last breath. We are confident that our show ‘Ek Mahanayak – Dr. B. R. Ambedkar’ will be a landmark life story on what a man can achieve through his clear and evolved vision, indomitable perseverance, and determination. I do believe this television show will have an incredible connection with the audiences. Never before has a story of such a great real struggle been showcased on Indian television and it’s a great honour and a huge responsibility for my production house SOBO Films to present it along with &TV in front of a very eager audience.”
