A Safarnama with TV actor Ankit Siwach on EPIC TV

 EPIC TV

Mumbai: IN10 Media Network’s EPIC TV has taken its audiences on umpteen journeys across the country - from exploring abandoned palaces and forts to taking off on adventures to exotic and wild jungles and even exploring the gastronomical wonders of several cuisines. Building on its legacy of being India Ka Apna Infotainment, EPIC TV brings a limited series to celebrate the vibrant facets of the country. Titled Safarnama, the show is hosted by the well-known television actor and passionate traveler, Ankit Siwach. The series travels from Mumbai to the unseen corners of Kashmir, Ladakh, and Himachal Pradesh and reveals to the audience unheard stories from these beautiful regions.

Ankit heads to the Himalayan mountains on a quest to find peace and serenity. His journey begins in the hustle-bustle of Mumbai and comes to a close in Kargil. As he travels, he explores the charm of Old Delhi, scenic sights of Kullu-Manali, famous monasteries and Pangong lake of Ladakh. He rides through the highest motorable pass of Asia, Khardungla La, unearths heroic tales of Kargil and has many more adventures. Safarnama is his travelogue filled with unforgettable memories and extraordinary experiences. 

Produced by Sinashh Films, the 9-episode series will be telecast at 8:30 pm, every Monday, from 3rd August, 2020, with a repeat telecast at 12:30 pm on every Tuesday.  

“EPIC TV has been home to some of the most exceptional stories about India across a vast range of genres and we take pride in bringing these extraordinary perspectives to our audiences,” said IN10 Media Network  VP – Corporate Strategy and Development Mansi Darbar. She adds further, “Safarnama deep dives into the variegated uniqueness of India through its exploratory narrative. We look forward to taking our audience on an exciting expedition and discovering a yet uncharted facet of India.”

Speaking about his experience anchoring the travel series, Ankit Siwach said, “Safarnama is very close to my heart and it is an honour to present the most beautiful parts of our country to the audience through my experiences. The show is also an ode to the armed forces and the people of Himachal and Ladakh.”

“The series is a breath of fresh air when people around the country are locked down in their homes fighting the ongoing pandemic. The scenic beauty, adventurous rides, never seen before villages, people, the might of our army protecting the northernmost borders in the treacherous terrains in the world and everything else that came alive organically during the trip will definitely put a smile on the audience’s face. I hope the viewers get an experience of a lifetime through Safarnama,” said the actor, who made his acting debut on television with Rishton Ka Chakravyuh in 2017, and was later seen in popular television shows like Manmohini and Beyhadh 2.

The Safarnama series is the latest addition to EPIC TV’s wide and thoughtfully cataloged list of travel-based shows that explore the diverse landscapes and facets of India, which include popular series like Ekaant, Sanrachna, Road Less Travelled, Way Back Home, Indiepedia, Lost Recipes, Wilderness Days and more. Apart from travel, the channel’s India-centric content library continues telling exceptional stories across history, mythology, sports, food, wildlife, nature, etc.
