Young parliamentarians focus of Dileep Padgaonkar's upcoming show on Zee News

MUMBAI: Zee News continues to pack its anchor team with personalities from diverse fields. This time, for a show featuring young parliamentarians, the channel has roped in former Times of India editor Dileep Padgaonkar, who follows ex-finance minister Yashwant Sinha and actor Abhinav Chaturvedi as anchors.

Padgaonkar, who has done some television programmes through his company APCA mainly for pubcaster Doordarshan earlier, will be seen in a new avatar on the news channel anchoring a personality based show on the young parliamentarians.

The show has been defined by Zee News as a breach of traditional shows revolving around dhoti-pyjama clad politicians. The show will capture the parliamentarians like Sachin Pilot, Milind Deora, Navin Jindal, Jyotiraditya Scindia, to name a few.

According to Zee Telefilms news director Laxmi N Goel, "Dileep Padgaonkar has been roped in for the show, Neta Tum Hi Kal Ke Ho (working title), as he possesses the stature and has worked in close quarters with politicians. He indeed can bring righteousness to the show."

As of now, the channel is still working on the title of the show. The personality driven show is scheduled to go on air by month-end.

Elaborating on the thing behind the show, Geol states, “It is mainly a breakthrough for the Indian mindset on the politicians. And, also to show the changing faces of Indian leadership."

According to Goel, the show will provide an insight to young parliamentarians with a new vision for a better tomorrow examining their work culture, family values and other aspects.

The show is under production and around 35 episodes have been planned.
