Hindi news channel ABP News will unveil the second season of Pradhanmantri—a show that delves into stories and intricacies of contemporary India—from January 25. The show will be aired every Saturday.
With the fresh season, Pradhanmantri will show never-told-before reality-based stories. Pradhanmantri Season II will be hosted by internationally acclaimed director, producer and actor Shekhar Kapur.
Avinash Pandey, CEO, ABP News Network, said, “We are extremely excited to present this show to the audience owing to its highly unique concept. Pradhanmantri Season II is sure to transcend all expectations of the viewers through comprehensive and compelling storytelling, backed by long, painstaking research. We at ABP want to go beyond the common perception of TV news as a speed news churner and create content that connects to the audience on a much more deeper and profound level. Pradhanmantri Season II is the epitome of such viewer-driven content.”
Show host Kapur said, “Ever since its inception, Pradhanmantri has held a special place in the heart of the viewers. The new season has been brought to the fore after identifying the pulse of the audience, with newer concepts and intriguing topics. Through the fresh season, we want to take the viewers through an entrancing journey of the Indian history and share with them — the old, the new and the unexplored.”
The first season of Pradhanmantri, in 2013, was praised by former deputy prime minister L.K. Advani. Advani mentioned the show in one of his speeches saying, it made him happy to see that the show delved into those ‘unexplored aspects of history that the common people were oblivious about.’
The show was also recommended by online learning platform, Byju’s as a ‘tremendous source of knowledge.’ The show also amassed tremendous traction on YouTube with more than 32 million views.
The first season of Pradhanmantri depicted some of the most important incidents and developments that have shaped the destiny of independent India. The second season, on the other hand, will discuss the ideas which will give India its due place in the comity of great nations.
