TV Networks join hands to commemorate one week of the Mumbai blasts

One week after the serial blasts in Mumbai, more than 30 TV channels, comprising all the major television networks in India, have come together to simulcast a two-minute film titled ‘The Voices of India’ in memory of those who lost their lives on that terror Tuesday. The short film will be telecast on July 18, 2006 at 6 pm and 9 pm.

The telecast has been designed as a campaign for India, which features the reaction of Mumbaikars to the terrorist attack on their city. The simulcast is being touted as a first ever event.

‘The Voices of India’ encapsulates thoughts expressed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after meeting the blast victims as well as celebrities including Sachin Tendulkar, Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Fardeen Khan, Anil Kapoor, Yash Chopra, Preity Zinta, Karan Johar and Nana Patekar.

The channels that have joined hands for this exercise include Doordarshan Network, STAR TV Network, Sony Television, Times Network, ETV, MTV, TV18 Network, NDTV Network, and Janmat, among others.
