CNN- IBN to air new celebrity show ‘Being’ from February 4

We Indians can never have enough of celebrities, be it their lifestyles, personal lives, idiosyncracies, controversies, or glamour quotient. Keeping this in mind, CNN-IBN has taken the initiative to give viewers a peek into celebrity lives via a new show called ‘Being’ from February 4. The series will be aired every Saturday at 8.30 pm.

‘Being’ will showcase celebrities from various walks of life – sports, politics, films, art and business. To be hosted by Anuradha Sengupta, the 30-minute programme will go deeper in their lives, thereby unraveling some interesting facets about them in the process.

Commenting on the new series, Dilip Venkatraman, Director-Marketing, CNN-IBN, said, “CNN-IBN takes a look into the lives of these celebrities and tries to explore how it is like “being” oneself. For instance, in the first episode, CNN-IBN will try to know and explore what it is really like “Being” Anoushka Shankar.”

Grammy Nominee Anoushka Shankar, who has been playing the sitar since the age of nine, is the only artist in the world to be trained completely by her father and legendary sitar virtuoso and composer, Ravi Shankar.

She became the youngest ever nominee in the Best World Music Album category in 2001. In 2004, Anoushka was chosen as one of 20 Asian Heroes by the Asia edition of ‘Time’ magazine.

The channel, however, didn’t disclose the names of the other celebrities who will be featured in the forthcoming episodes of the show.

GBN, a TV18 Group Company, is a 74:26 joint venture between the TV18 Group and professionals – Rajdeep Sardesai, Sameer Manchanda and Haresh Chawla.
