Toilet: ek navrangi katha

In a first-of-its-kind in the TV industry,  Viacom18, has partnered with the world’s largest philanthropic organization, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and BBC Media Action to create a general entertainment fiction series with an underlying behaviour change message on sanitation. The 26-episode finite series ‘Navrangi Re!’ which has Bollywood star- actor Anil Kapoor playing a 'cameo role',  will shortly go on-air, bi-weekly, over 13 weeks, on Colors and Rishtey.The show will be the first original production on Rishtey and will also be available on the network’s OTT platform VOOT.Speaking about the show, Sudhanshu Vats, the ‘Bigg Boss’ of Viacom18 said: “Sanitation has been a cause that we are closely associated with, whether through our sustainability project ‘Chakachak Mumbai’ or our film ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’. We hope to engage our audiences with powerful storytelling and intend to bring forth the importance of faecal  sludge management to keep Bharat Swachh.” ‘Navrangi Re!’ is a hard-hitting telly-drama series—an engaging story of a congested mohalla(a neighbourhood) in a town in Northern India full of real, but quirky and endearing characters. Vishwaas, the hero of this 26-episode television drama series, played by actor Aamir Ali, is a struggling TV journalist who is not able to deliver ‘breaking news’ stories.

But in this hunt for stories, he discovers the gateway to bring about change for his Mohalla, aided by a few others. An ensemble cast made up of seasoned actors such as Sushmita Mukherjee, Raju Kher, Vaishnavi Dhanraj and other promising talents.
