Mumbai: In an unprecedented collaboration, Sony SAB has teamed up with the Indian Cancer Society (ICS) to tackle a pressing and often unspoken issue - breast cancer. In a society where fear and embarrassment frequently shroud discussions about this critical health concern, Sony SAB is taking a bold step forward through its popular show, ‘Wagle Ki Duniya’, and its strategic partnership with ICS. The objective is to encourage viewers to shed their inhibitions and openly engage in conversations about breast cancer, creating awareness, self-examination and screenings leading to early detection, and ultimately saving lives. This partnership underscores Sony SAB's commitment to fostering open dialogue on vital topics.

Wagle Ki Duniya – Nayi Peedhi Naye Kissey is a family-oriented drama that touches upon the everyday challenges faced by the quintessential Indian family. The ongoing track in the show highlights Vandana's (portrayed by Pariva Pranati) battle against breast cancer. It aims to inspire women to overcome fear and embarrassment, as staying silent could have grave consequences. In an effort to reinforce this message, Sony SAB has joined hands with the Indian Cancer Society and is set to air a promo encouraging viewers to log on to or call the helpline number 8411803040, for essential information and support related to early detection and self-examination for breast cancer. With the #shekickscancer initiative, Sony SAB hopes to address such crucial topics openly and contribute to a more healthy and aware society.
