EPIC On’s Siyaasat wins ‘Popular Regional TV Show’ at Xiaomi’s PatchWall Binge Awards 2019

MUMBAI: EPIC On by IN10 Media is home to premium India-centric content and a pioneer in creating and telling exceptional stories about the country. Recently, the premium OTT platform’s legacy was reiterated at Xiaomi India’s PatchWall Binge Awards 2019. One of the marquee show on EPIC On – Siyaasat, based on Indu Sundaresan’s novel, ‘The Twentieth Wife,’ was voted the most-watched regional language show (in Tamil), winning the ‘Popular Regional TV Show’ award.

A real-life saga of passion, power and politics, Siyaasat is the story of a girl who charted her way to power and is known by the world as Noor Jahan, the Mallikaa of Hindustan. Produced by Green Light Productions, the show is a ride into the underbelly of the royals and nobles of the Mughal Empire: the politics, the games, the manipulations, and the desires that drove them. Set in 17th century India, the show revolves around the lives of larger-than-life individuals from out of the pages of history - Emperor Akbar, Salim, Mehrunissa, and many others.

EPIC On chief operating officer Souryja Mohanty said, “At EPIC we take pride in telling extraordinary stories in unique ways. Siyaasat is a story that resonates with every Indian and we are overwhelmed it has become the most popular show among Tamil speaking viewers. The appreciation encourages us to continue telling exceptional stories transcending boundaries. We are committed to provide extraordinary India-centric content to enthrall viewers across various demographics and geographic spread in the coming days.”

“The key reason for Mi TV’s success in India for 6 consecutive quarters has been primarily due to our content first approach which led to the development of PatchWall. We are extremely proud to have great quality content partners like EPIC On who further enrich our libraries for our consumers. We congratulate team EPIC On and Team Siyaasat for bagging the Patchwall Binge Award, as it is further proof of the audience’s love for the product we have all delivered,” said Xiaomi India category lead – MiTV Eshwar Nilakantan.
