We are really happy to have Gul Panag join us in our mission to bring stories of hope and change for all the planet lovers across in the country,” said Star & Disney India infotainment, kids & regional entertainment channels president & head Kevin Vaz.

“I have grown up with National Geographic and I’m truly honoured that I got the chance to be part of their Earth Day special celebrations. The thought and cause behind Planet Possible is extremely close to my heart since I firmly believe that we should all be contributing towards our planet. I am urging people to take inspiration from the films and do their bit in making the world a better place to live in,” said Gul Panag
