The special show, Tasveeron Mein 26/11, will showcase a slideshow of the terror attack, along with montage of videos, stills and voices from that dreaded attack last year at 11 pm in the night.

Meanwhile, Marathi news channel IBN Lokmat has also planned shows to remember the night. IBN Lokmat editor-in-chief Nikhil Wagle will revisit the wounded lanes of Mumbai in Maza Shahar Mazi Mansa - ek varshanantar (My City, My people – after one year) at 8.30 am.
