Doordarshan Mumbai's inhouse music-n-dance show Tak Dhina Dhin will soon reach an unsurpassed milestone of completing 250 episodes among the state broadcaster's programmes
The landmark achievement was celebrated in a unique manner at the YB Chavan Centre on Wednesday. Renowned singer Lata Mangeshkar was present as chief guest at the function, which also boasted several noted vocalists presenting compositions rendered originally by Lata. The event produced by Nina Raut was a long drawn out three hour affair which was attended by a select audience of over three hundred invitees who sat spellbound though the show, compered jointly by Adesh Bandekar and Vrinda Haire.
The highlight of the evening was when Lata, along with five renowned Marathi personalities from the world of music - Datta Daojekar, Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Srinivas Khale, Mangesh Padgaonkar and Snehal Bhatkar were felicitated on the occasion.
The event will be telecast in the form of six half hour episodes, the first of which will coincide with the 250th episode of Tak Dhina Dhin. The show, according to DD officials, was the winner of the best TV show award at the Doordarshan awards ceremony held in December 2001. This unique programme has been on air for the last five years.
