Big Magic to launch fourth integrated show ‘Nautanki News’

MUMBAI: After launching three integrated shows namely Fakebook with Kavita, Chutki Baja Ke and Lete Hai Khabar Khabro Ki, Big Magic and Big FM are all set to launch a new show from their bouquet of spoofy and comedic content titled Nautanki News. The show will air from 4 November on Wednesday – Thursday at 9:30 pm time slot.


Coming on board as the host is theater actor Darshan Jariwala, who will don several hats on the show. Being played out in a fictitious news channel set-up, Jariwala will play the aggressive managing editor, and switch roles every now and then from being a news reader, to a live-reporter, to a chat show-host and even a newsroom editor.


Through mock panel discussions, live reporting and chat shows, the show will hilariously throw light on how tactics such as yellow journalism, paid news, sensationalised coverage and more, are driving the agendas of TRP-hungry news channels today, thereby promising to be an out and out laughter riot for the viewers.  


Big Magic creative director Bimal Unnikrishnan said, “Nautanki News will take the entertainment quotient on Big Magic a notch higher. It will be the perfect example of combining topicality and humour. Nautanki News will throw light on the news making business as a whole in a fun and witty manner that has never been showcased before on television.”
