MUMBAI: Sony SAB has undertaken an innovative and unique approach in promoting one of its new shows ??Khidki?. What defines the new mini-series is that ?real? life funny stories sourced from audiences from all parts of Indiawill be dramatized, developed and adapted for the small screen. With the intention of crowd sourcing such genuineand cherished stories from viewers, thec hannel has embarked on a phase-wise campaign to create awareness about the show and invite entries.

?Khidki?s ongoing publicity campaign has met with considerable success generating a total of 12,345 (twelve thousand and three hundred forty-five stories), thus far! The first phase of this campaign was devised to actively scout for comic content from consumers. From partnering with the micro-blogging site ? Twitter to run a contest titled ?#Tweetyourfunnystory?, to a live Q&A session with the producers of the show JD Majethia and Umesh Shukla onTwitter's video-streaming app Periscope, the channel has pulled out all stops in ensuring that it stokes excitement amongst consumers in sharing some of their funniest stories. Sticking to its promise of presenting viewers ?interesting, real life stories from every corner of India?, SAB has conducted an activation program in long-distance trains like Rajdhani, Shatabadi and Garib Rath. In addition, SAB has also run multiple promos on its home channel encouraging consumers to upload their funny stories on the microsite.

From ushering the need for people to share some of their heartfelt stories in the first phase of the campaign, SAB has now decided to add momentum to its campaign movement by undertaking initiatives to drive tune-ins for the show in the second phase. Leaving no stone unturned in creating a buzz about the new show, the channel has embarked on a 9-series illustration-based print advertising campaign, each depicting the kind of story that will be featured in Khidki. The 9-insert campaign is being released across 23 national and regional publications. Further, illustration based outdoor hoardings will be put up across 10 towns. A radio jingle sung by Actor Raghubeer Yadav will be played across Hindi speaking market (HSM) stations and local trains.

True to its personality of successfully connecting, entertaining and engaging with viewers, SAB has decided tolaunch ?Khidki? in a manner no different. For a show who?s USP is ?real? stories, the channel has decided to ride high on the ?relatability? aspect by getting its SAB Family Club members to unveil the show in different cities across India.

?Khidki?s?cast will feature a set of recurring actors like Sarita Joshi, Rajeev Mehta and Lubna Salim to name a few who will portray different characters in different stories, along with narration by host JD Majethia, who is also the producer of the show. Each story will be weaved in episodes designed to last for minimum of three to eight episodes, depending on the length of each story.
