Mumbai: ALTBalaji, India’s leading homegrown OTT platform, in association with Ketto India launches Oonchi Udaan —an initiative that will help in empowering women across our country. Through this initiative, the OTT player aims to create a deep impact in contributing towards women’s welfare in order to get them ready for the future and face the world with utmost confidence. As part of the initiative, Rs.5 from each ALTBalaji subscription will be donated as proceedings towards this cause. It has always been ALTBalaji’s endeavour to portray the strength of today’s Indian woman with each of its initiatives and even the strong characterization of women depicted in its shows.
Oonchi Udaan will work towards the betterment of the underprivileged women of our society by providing them with education, teaching life-skills and enhancing their livelihood skills. In addition to that, it will also help build a strong 360-degree life of learning and economic foundation that equips women to escape the cycle of poverty.
Commenting on the collaboration, Divya Dixit, Senior VP & Marketing Head ALTBalaji said, ‘Women empowerment and their upliftment in modern-day society is extremely close to our hearts at ALTBalaji. It is something that is also highlighted prominently in our women-centric shows whether it be Haq Se, Kehne Ko Hum Safar Hain, The Test Case or the most recent one Mission Over Mars. Oonchi Udaan aims to empower underprivileged women to learn new skillsets and becoming independent. It is our one small step in the right direction towards women receiving the support and we request you to support us in this mission”
Speaking on the association, Varun Sheth, CEO of Ketto said, “The development of our nation is directly appended to the empowerment of women. It’s utterly essential that we as a nation address this problem of socio-economic inequality where women succumb to poverty due to lack of education, resources, and skill development. Crowdfunding can help create the much-needed avenues for women empowerment wherein initiatives like ‘Oonchi Udaan’ are funded to help equip women with skills required to escape the cycle of poverty.”
ALTBalaji with its latest web series M.O.M – Mission Over Mars, showcased an inspiring story of determination and faith of four women scientists who led the Mars mission. They not only led it, but made it a resounding success despite the lack of resources, time and at the brunt of constant doubts and taunts. To help kick-start this initiative, the digital platform is donating towards the cause through every new subscription they receive for Mission-Over-Mars.
With the brand’s presence being extremely strong amongst a wide cross-section of the population in the country, the initiative will help to create awareness and acceptance amongst the masses. Building on the legacy of creating iconic shows, ALTBalaji’s exclusive content library has built a catalogue of more than 45 Originals like ‘Apharan,’ ‘Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain,’ ‘Home,’ ‘Gandii Baat’, ‘The Test Case’, ‘Bose: Dead or Alive’ among others, which continue to be lauded by viewers across the globe.
