Mumbai: Big Magic adds yet another unique offering to its bouquet of shows with the launch of a first-of-its-kind historic drama, ‘Akbar’. The show aims to unravel the prodigious journey of the Mughal emperor right from the days of his childhood, and traces his path to the throne in a manner that has never been projected before on Indian television.
The show boasts of a stellar cast, including child actor Bhavesh as Akbar, in addition to talented artists Ankur Nayyar, Rishina Kandhari, Hetal Yadav, and Kareem Hanjee among others. ‘Akbar’ will be aired from February 20, every Monday to Friday at 7 PM on BIG Magic.
Speaking about the new show, spokesperson from Big Magic said, “We are extremely happy to announce our new offering ‘Akbar’, which is relatable, inspiring and laced with unknown facts from Mughal history. People have always known Akbar as a powerful emperor, but this show unveils the struggle he went through as a child, before going on to acquire the throne. The show is unique because it offers a side of the emperor that has never been portrayed before to popular masses. Catering to all age groups, the show promises to be a family entertainer, and we hope to continue catering to the aims and aspirations of a large and steadily growing audience base.”
Big Magic’s ‘Akbar’ will inspire viewers with its effective storyline, by showcasing the hardships of a young boy who went on to become a brilliant ruler, thereby contradicting popular belief that the throne did not come easily to him. The show will be driven by a 360-degree marketing approach, to reach out to the target markets through its various multi media campaigns on TV, radio, on-ground and digital.
