MUMBAI: Zee Telugu’s half a decade old family drama ‘Muddha Mandaram’ is all set to go off-air on 27th December. The family drama starring Haritha, Pawan Sai and Thanuja Gowda in lead roles.

Produced by Annapurna Studios, the show garnered eyeballs with its compelling story line and strong characterisation. The show encapsulates the story of a strong-willed and stubborn woman, Akhilandeshwari, her elder son Deva, and his love story with Parvati, their help. This popular show had reached a novel milestone earlier this year by completing 1500 episodes and has also been remade into various languages like Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada.

Since its launch, ‘Muddha Mandaram’ has garnered a huge fan base in the Telugu market. Audiences have fondly adored and loved the on-screen chemistry between the lead characters Parvathi and Deva, who reincarnated as Soundarya and Abhinandan. The show was also widely popular among mothers, owing to their strong connect with Akhilandeshwari’s character and her compassion towards her son.

Commenting on his stint on the show, her co-actor Pawan Sai says, “5 years, over 1580 episodes, and Infinite Love. It’s difficult to contain the myriad of emotions running inside me and yet words elude me. Muddha Mandaram for me is a pure sign of family attachments and emotional bonding followed by responsibilities. I take the liberty to say this on behalf of the entire cast and crew, that we gave it our all. There were no half measures. All I feel right now is overwhelming gratitude for all the lives who collaborated on this epic journey and the ones embraced this as your own.”

  Discovery Channel to premiere ‘India 2050’ docu on 29 Dec
Posted by: nairrk - 12-23-2019, 02:57 PM - Forum: Television Programs - No Replies

[Image: India-2050-India-Gate.jpg]

MUMBAI: Discovery Channel will unravel the potential dangers of uncontrolled environmental degradation and climate change with ‘India 2050’, a thought-provoking documentary, that premieres on 29th December at 9 pm.

The documentary begins with Jaipur, known as the Pink City of India, but imagined as in 2050, completely buried under piles of sand. It then moves into the future of currently flourishing metropolises of Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, and Kolkata, giving viewers a terrifying glimpse of what is to come, for each of these metro cities.

Highlighting the importance of the show, Discovery Director–Content, Factual & Lifestyle Entertainment – South Asia Sai Abishek said, “India 2050 shines a light on what could lie-ahead if we don’t change. It is a wake-up call, urging each one of us to emerge from our collective slumber to act before it gets too late.”

Highlighting industrial damage to the ecosystem in the show, Amitav Ghosh, author of Great Derangement, says, “We cannot in any way absolve companies and corporations of playing a role in this because we know now that there’s been a huge systematic, well-funded climate denial machine! It was really the role of money, which has actually held up any kind of climate action for a very long time now.” While, Environmentalist and Climate Change Expert Chandra Bhushan, warns, “We are going to leave our children a planet which is going to be much harsher than what we have today.”

While presenting this alarmist view on the future, the film also highlights a larger crisis that humanity is likely to face – the crisis of environmental migration and climate refugees, the effects of which we are already facing in 2019 in certain patches in the Sundarbans and on India’s east coast. Going forward, experts predict this to be the single most urgent crisis to be faced by every country in the world as sea levels will continue to rise and glaciers will continue to melt bringing about unprecedented and irrevocable changes to human life as we know it.

“We don’t have time anymore. In the month of August 2019, within 12 days, India received more than a thousand extreme and heavy rainfall events! You’re getting to see the worst impacts of climate change and they’re happening now!” says, Sunita Narain, Director General, Centre for Science and Environment, highlighting the need for immediate action.

“People like us are protected. We believe… and it’s our arrogance that has created the problem. Because we believe nothing can affect us! We will ramp up, we’ll put on another air conditioner – the heat outside goes on. If there is no water, we’ll buy bottled water. But we’re not worried about a dying river – because we still get clean water in our taps,” she further adds highlighting human apathy as one of the key reasons as to why we haven’t been able to come together as a species to counter climate change in any way.
