Sony Entertainment Television makes Makarsankranti memorable for the commuters of Western Railway

MUMBAI: The local trains in Mumbai are known to give a unique glimpse into the lives of Mumbaikars. The most endearing part of the train is the ladies compartment which is as colorful and as boisterous as the women commuters. From Birthdays to Anniversaries to Bachelorettes and respective festivals get celebrated in these compartments. The ‘train friends’ form ‘train groups’ and eventually graduate to being an integral part of each other’s lives. As an ode to this bond of train friendship, Sony Entertainment Television recently launched the show – Ladies Special, that boasts of an engaging narrative that weaves three stories of hope, friendship, aspiration and womanhood, the show will redefine the audience’s outlook towards life. Keeping up the spirit of celebrations, the channel had a colorful surprise stored in for the commuters on the very first festival of 2019!

On the occasion of Makarsankranti, the channel engaged in social festivities across the Ladies coaches in 40 trains on Western Railway. The Ladies coaches were bedecked with kite-shaped creatives that highlighted festive wishes from the three characters – Meghna, Bindu and Prarthna.
