Anchored by ace Bollywood actor Anupam Kher, ‘Bharatvarsh’ will present thoughts and ideologies of such varied personalities.

Our great civilization, history and culture are recreated through some never-heard-before real stories. The grand cinematic production and meticulous research will dazzle you and each episode will leave you filled with more pride for India.”
