Directed by Vivek Agnihotri, Bharat Ki Baat is a positive narrative on India glorious past, ever developing present and a positive outlook into her future. After tracking India’s rich history and diverse culture, the show touched upon complex topics like women empowerment and social justice. The upcoming episodes scale up to the glossier parts of the country to track the urban economy.
Bharat Ki Baat includes Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s flagship programs like Make In India and Skill India which have been developed with a view to attract investors into the country and encourage production, enhance industrial activities in the country.
Talking about the upcoming episodes of Bharat ki Baat, Pallavi Joshi said, “Shooting these episodes have been quite a challenge simply because the landscape is vast. Be it Skill India or Make in India initiatives or start-ups in the country the segments that contribute to India’s booming economy are also diverse in nature. When we talk of startups it is usually a techie with sound education and global exposure who have decided to shift base to India and roll out their own entrepreneurship vision. While those who form a part of Skill India initiatives are from a much modest background and with the help of training and incubation support they too are building their microenterprise. It’s heartwarming to see India’s entrepreneurship booming. Entrepreneurship is a way of life and mostly about risks and challenges and we Indians are ready for it across strata that is what we have tried to convey through these episodes. Also, another aspect that came out in our research is the fact startups are perceived as youth phenomenon but we met a whole bunch of middle-aged people who have launched their ventures. Through these episodes, we have also tried to break this perception”.
Bharat Ki Baat is telecast at 10: 00 am every Saturday and Sunday only on News18 India, along with News18 UP, News18 MP, News18 Punjab, News18 Rajasthan, News18 Bihar and News18 Urdu.
