Big Magic & Big FM launch integrated show ‘Fakebook with Kavita’

MUMBAI: Reliance Broadcast Network’s entertainment channel Big Magic and 92.7 Big FM will be launching an integrated satirical comedy show called Fakebook with Kavita with TV actress Kavita Kaushik.


The show, which will be aired as a simulcast on television and radio for the first time in the industry, is a fresh take on the hypocritical Indian society, focusing on topical issues, which make you sit up, think and introspect, albeit with a pinch of humour.


Starting from 19 October Fakebook with Kavita will be aired at 9 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays on Big  Magic and from Mondays to Thursdays on 92.7 Big FM.


In line with the programming strategy, the content will be sarcastic, irreverent, relatable and cutting edge. Kaushik will be seen doing sketches where her character will vary depending on situations.


Big Magic creative director Bimal Unnikrishnan said, “We are introducing a genre - satirical comedy, which has not been explored much on the small screen. Fakebook with Kavita is a light hearted, relatable, satirical comedy series with a fresh take on the hypocritical Indian society. We are excited to launch our first integrated show, which will enthrall viewers of Big Magic as well as the listeners of 92.7 Big FM, thus enhancing the reach of the show across India. It is our consistent endeavour to create shows with cutting edge content coupled with ‘full on LOL’ moments and we do hope that the audiences will love this.”


Kaushik added, “I am glad to be associated with this unique show. It is a take on our hypocritical society but with a dose of comedy. Audiences will see me discussing real life issues and topical situations with lots of humour. Looking at the scenario today, I genuinely believe that a show of this nature is much needed and it is the perfect time to launch it. The best part is that the reach of the show will be manifold as it will air on both Big Magic and 92.7 Big FM."
