HistoryTV18 has brought back hit factual entertainment series ‘OMG! Yeh Mera India’ to TV screens with a vibrant new season from March 29 at 8pm on Holi day.
In its fifth year and seventh season, the series has gone from strength to strength, reaching millions of viewers on television and digital platforms. It has impacted the people featured in various episodes. Not only have they been widely recognised and celebrated for their talent or record-setting feats, but some have also been honoured with the prestigious Padma Awards, including Pankajakshi Amma and Meenakshi Amma from Kerala and Teejan Bai from Chhattisgarh. Some stories from the series have even inspired cinematic works by filmmakers. Stories such as those of conservationist Dr Prakash Amte or octogenarian sharp-shooter Chandro Tomar have become the subject of popular films.
‘OMG! Yeh Mera India,’ S7 builds on the magic of earlier seasons, celebrating an India where ordinary people make history every day, doing extraordinary things. The new season of the show serves up fascinating curiosities, exceptional talent, and modern-day wonders, with a dash of the strange and unusual. Season 7 also presents inspiring stories about individuals and their creations driven by a mission to make a positive impact on lives and the world at large. For instance, viewers will be able to see a unique energy-saving ‘solar boat’ and also find out how a ‘nano jeep’ could prove life-changing for people with special needs. This season also features an impressive range of stories, people and places bound within the show’s original promise – to showcase and celebrate India in all its vitality, ingenuity, and diversity. Singer Benny Dayal has lent his voice to OMG! Yeh Mera India’s new, foot-tapping title song.
Actor and TV presenter Krushna Abhishek will continue as the show’s host. Abhishek said, “A new season of OMG is like returning home for me! I feel thrilled and blessed that I’ve been a part of this hugely successful series. I’m constantly amazed by our incredible country and the amazing talent its people possess. I can tell you that Season 7 will entertain you like never before!”
Avinash Kaul, Managing Director, A+E Networks | TV18 and CEO-Broadcast for Network18, said, “When we launched ‘OMG! Yeh Mera India’, we were sure it would be an instant hit. Not only is it extremely well-produced and compelling content, but it also showcases the most fascinating and often untold, unseen stories from across the country. People have told me that just watching the show makes them feel proud of being Indian. Season after season, the show has performed beyond our expectations. This season, production continued through the turmoil of the pandemic, and I’m confident that it will win over audiences. I would like to thank the entire team and the viewers for making the franchise such an incredible success story!”
