CNN-IBN, Hindustan Times to present 'Mumbai Makeover'


MUMBAI: CNN-IBN, in association with Hindustan Times, is launching a special series - Mumbai Makeover on 8 March at 8:30 pm. The special series will take a look at the five biggest civic projects presently underway in Mumbai and how they are expected to change the face of the city over the next few years.

Mumbai Makeover is an extension of the The Mumbai Project, initiated recently by the Hindustan Times. It explores the hurdles, progress and anticipated benefits of five large-scale municipal assignments presently underway across Mumbai.

CNN-IBN and IBN 7 editor-in-chief Rajdeep Sardesai said, "A rapidly growing population and limitations of space are problems faced by metropolises across the country, especially Mumbai. Mumbai Makeover looks into some of the major development projects planned by the city to ease the encumbrance faced by Mumbaikars on a daily basis. It is a series that will be of interest and relevance to all who consider Mumbai home."

Hindustan Times, Mumbai editor Samar Halarnkar said, "We, at HT, believe we live in a time of hope and great change. So it's time to hope, certainly, that we can transform our city. It's also time to understand the change that is upon us."
