MUMBAI: After the successful first season of Mission Sapne, Colors is all set to launch the second season starting from 17 January at 11 am every Sunday. 



Produced by Sobo Films, Mission Sapne Season 2 will feature 10 celebrated entertainers who will showcase their talent as they work their magic to learn the professional ongoings and tricks of the trade to raise funds in support of a deserving commoner.



Speaking to Indiantelevision.com about the second edition of Mission Sapne, Sobo Films director Smruti Shinde said, “I think television is a very strong medium to highlight causes which are read about in the newspapers or seen on news channels. The reason I want to do this show on a GEC was because of the show’s strong entertainment quotient. It doesn’t drag or get boring when you talk about social causes and through entertainment you are able to help that one person or highlight good causes, which needed that kind of attention.”  



Mission Sapne provides dramatic entertainment with a strong social message as entertainers from different industries willingly live the common man’s professional life for a day. Talking about the research done for the show, Shinde informed, “We did three months of research before going on air. We have a research team, which systematically goes through a lot of cases. We interview people from different walks of life. India is a place where you have many such cases and we cannot help each one of them but with our small initiative we can at least highlight such cases.”



The first season of Mission Sapne was launched on 27 April, 2014 on Colors. The show was aired at 8 pm every Sunday. This time round, the 10 episodes series will see some changes as the production house will focus more on creating awareness than raising funds for the people.



“After the first season, we realised that there are many people that we need to help through the show. We decided that we should also talk about the different causes besides helping the individuals. We need to highlight social issues as well. Therefore, this season will have a few important causes, which need to be talked about. We are creating awareness and sending messages through celebrities on issues like farmer suicides, HIV and molestation. We are trying to highlight social causes this season rather than helping individuals. Also, this season we will have lot of women star power on the show,” she informed.

The second season will also see some important issues like women empowerment. Talking about the selection process, Shinde said, “We picked up the cases, which are relevant in today’s time. There was no particular criteria as such for selecting people. We come across some people that really need help, so we help them.”

Sharing her experience of working with Colors CEO Raj Nayak, Shinde shared, “A couple of years back we launched this show Bole Toh Malamaal in Marathi on Mi Marathi. Raj Nayak had wanted us to bring it on Hindi GEC so that we can create more awareness through the show. It’s been superb working with him. He has been a big support throughout the journey of Mission Sapne. Viacom, Colors and Raj Nayak supported it to a great extent and I think it’s their own CSR initiative to come on the show and not taking any money.”
