Times Now Navbharat to air docu-series ‘Kahani Navbharat Ki’

Directed by Aparna Sanyal, the show is set to premiere on 30 January.

Mumbai: Times Now Navbharat has announced a documentary series "Kahani Navbharat Ki," which chronicles the stories of India’s 75 years. The series will air from 30 January every Sunday at 8 p.m on Times Now Navbharat SD and HD channels.

Directed by Aparna Sanyal, recipient of a National Film Award and hosted by Bollywood actor Vikrant Massey, the 10-part series captures Indian history and culture. The theme song is composed by Gaurav Chintamani and written by Dr. Sagar. The show is produced by Times Network’s content studio Times Chronicles, which creates fact-based originals and docu-series.

“We are proud to present Kahani Navbharat Ki (KNK) on Times Now Navbharat. KNK is a deeply researched, fact-based series of untold stories that define the last 75 years of Independent India,” said Times Network MD and CEO MK Anand. “While a lot is discussed about our medieval and ancient history, there are scant resources when it comes to unbiased commentary on contemporary India and how it has developed over these eventful years since independence. As an emerging major country on the global stage in the 21st century, it is important that we as Indians understand our historic circumstances and appreciate who we really are and how we have become. I am confident that this docu-series will serve as a reference point to every Indian, especially the youth to understand the New India story in great depth.”

The docu-series showcases historical records of events such as the beginning of India’s mobile revolution, culture of vaccination in India, issue of MSP, nationalisation and privatisation of banks, establishment of IITs amongst others.

The series also features riveting first-hand accounts by India’s first voter - Shyam Saran Negi, Wing Commander Krishnamurthy, who witnessed the signing ceremony of the Surrender Document during the 1971 Indo-Pak war, Ashok Mahadevan, the journalist who put out an obituary for democracy after the announcement of the emergency and Raman Roy, who started the BPO industry in India amongst others.

“I am thrilled to be associated with Times Now Navbharat to host Kahani Navbharat Ki,” said show host Vikrant Massey. “My motivation as the host was to inspire, inform and intrigue the audiences about what’s gone into making India what it is today. I always wanted to be a part of project like this, and I am happy to have this opportunity to share our proud history and culture.”
