Mumbai, India (PressExposure) August 20, 2009 -- Stand-up comedy show launches Jay Hind on Independence Day and celebrates a free India
Undercover Productions, a boutique production company by Mrinal Jha and Abhigyan Jha, in collaboration with the internet portal Buzzintown today announced the launch of âJay Hind!â â The worldâs first ever TV Show on an online platform. âJay Hind!â will go live on the internet from the 15th of August, Indian Independence day, and will be available at http://jayhind.buzzintown.com.
Abhigyan Jha, founder of Undercover Productions said, âJay Hind! is about another kind of discovery of India that takes a deep look at the heart of the country and comes out laughing. It is a celebration of free India, where the only freedom we are mostly left with is the freedom of speech. It is also a celebration of the India that's coming - a strong, proud India that doesn't mind laughing at its ironies and follies. Considering the content of the show, it seemed most appropriate for us to launch âJay Hind!â on Independence Day.â
The stand-up comedy show will be hosted by versatile television actor & star of the hit show Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai Sumeet Raghavan. The show will feature a stand up routine followed by quick one-liners about current events and brief comedy sketches, impromptu street interviews, celebrity interviews and performances. Further attraction in this show will be a brand new segment called âBoothnathâ, where the producers plan to install booths across the country with surveillance cameras, so that people can go there to vent their anger on anything or anyone.
Dr. Amitabh Saran, co-founder and managing director, Buzzintown on this occasion said, âThe online platform has seen a sharp rise in the number of subscribers, with the internet reaching out to remote regions in the country. Our partnership with Undercover Productions allows âJay Hind!â to reach an audience who does not have the time to watch television but has easy access to the internet on their PC or mobile phones. It is exciting to be part of a pioneering and mammoth launch of a television show online.â
