MUMBAI: With the festive season coming up, Big Magic promises to give its viewers an extra dose of entertainment under the umbrella of ‘Mahotsav’ from 25 September onwards touching festivals like Navratri, Dussera, Karva Chauth, Diwali, Christmas and New Year.

Navratri will have special episodes of Ajab Gajab Ghar Jamai and Har Mushkil ka Hal Akbar Birbal, Karva Chauth will focus on all the key shows and Diwali is being planned as a special two hours of musical entertainment on 18 Oct from 8 pm onwards.

Each programming spike has been tailored on the basis of research and feedback from audiences in its core markets across the Hindi heartland, to ensure an engaging and entertaining watch for the entire family.

With some of the biggest faces in comedy like Kiku Sharada, Delnaaz Irani, Kishwar Merchant, Upasana Singh, Humani Shivpuri and Sumit Vats, from across its key shows of Har Mushkiil Ka Hal Akbar-Birbal, Ajab Gajab Ghar Jamai and Uff! Yeh Nadaniyaan, the stage is set.

The channel credits itself for authentic festive celebrations layered with comedy to ensure the content resonates excellently with its audiences, while marketers get optimal ROI for their investment.

In the recent past, festive specials for Eid and Teej on the show Har Mushkil ka Hal Akbar Birbal delivered an increase in viewership for the show across the HSM market. This special, played up the festive nuances along with some of the best performances by its artists.

In addition to the regular festive spikes, the Big Diwali Mela, the Diwali special, will see the most exciting rendition of celebrations around Diwali with artists from across shows coming together for a special celebration.

Each festive property will see a multi-media marketing campaign come into play across television, radio, OOH, digital and on ground. Additionally, the network strength of the nation’s number one radio network 92.7 BIG FM and Bihar and Jharkhand’s number one regional TV channel - Big Magic Ganga, ensures partners on board the festive offerings on the channel will get maximum value.

Commenting on the festive line up Reliance Broadcast Network COO Lavneesh Gupta believes that the festive spikes have been mapped to ensure high relevance, community connect and excellent engagement. “Big Magic’s reach to over 85 million households across the HSM’s, coupled with the unduplicated incremental reach of 10 per cent which the channel delivers across the core markets of UP, MP and Rajasthan makes it an excellent platform for marketers to ride on, this festive season.”
