Manav Sethi, CMO of ALTBalaji said, “We are thrilled to bring original regional stand-up comedy on ALTBalaji. Based on consumer insight, we understood that the stand-up available to viewers is mostly English or Hindi, neglecting the regional language demand and so we have identified local talents from these regions and got them on board. The highly talented, witty and humorous artistes bring in the flavour of their language and culture on stage; hope the viewers like it.”
