Radio City launches 'Hara Hai Toh बरं आहे' initiative for a greener Mumbai

In association with Santosh Shetty of ‘We all Connect’, the initiative is part of the 3rd leg of Radio City's popular ‘Kar Mumbaikar’ campaign

exchange4media Staff 14 hours ago


Radio City has strengthened its commitment towards developing sustainable, pollution-free cities with the launch of the third leg of its popular ‘Kar Mumbaikar’ campaign. Through this 4 weeks long campaign, Radio City RJs Salil and Archana will visit nooks and corners of Mumbai city each week and plant trees. Radio City’s latest initiative, 'Hara Hai Toh बरं आहे' in association with Santosh Shetty of ‘We all Connect’, will help replenish the green cover over Mumbai’s concrete jungle by conducting plantation drives across Mumbai.

During their popular morning show ‘Kasa Kai Mumbai’, the RJs will urge listeners to nominate their societies/areas for this initiative and conduct a plantation drive, while broadcasting the on-air show from the same location.

Extending his support to Radio City’s Kar Mumbaikar 'Hara Hai Toh बरं आहे' initiative, Thackeray actor Nawazuddin Siddique said, “Mumbai is facing several environmental problems that are on the rise and the receding green cover is one of the key aspects amplifying this issue. Promoting tree plantations in our own vicinity is a basic but vital step towards the preservation of the environment which in turn will positively impact the health and safety of citizens. Radio City’s ‘Hara Hai Toh बरं आहे' initiative, led by RJ Salil and RJ Archana is a great step towards raising awareness towards this cause. I hope that the initiative will highlight the significance of planting trees and drive every individual to take a step in the direction of developing a green, pollution free city.”

Commenting on the launch of the third leg of the ‘Kar Mumbaikar’ campaign, Radio City’s RJ Salil and RJ Archana said, “With the city observing a rapid environmental decline, plantation of trees is a crucial task, and through this campaign, we want to urge Mumbaikars to take this issue seriously. In tandem with our brand philosophy, Rag Rag Mein Daude City, we hope that our campaign will inspire citizens to bring back Mumbai’s green cover and set an example for other cities to become a cleaner, greener space to live in.” The campaign spanning on-air, on-ground and digital platforms, hopes to bring about a change in the mindsets of citizens by illustrating how small and achievable changes can bring about a significant difference in society."

For the uninitiated, Mumbai’s tree cover, which was more than 35% in the 1970s, is less than 13% today, as per a study conducted by the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore. The IISC scientists emphasized the need for any region to have at least 33% green cover to ensure adequate oxygen to its citizens. Through the first two phases of the ‘Kar Mumbaikar’ campaign, Radio City has addressed various issues plaguing Mumbai such as the pothole menace faced by citizens during the monsoon season and ‘StreeDum’ campaign that raised awareness against the objectification of women. True to its brand philosophy of ‘Rag Rag Mein Daude City’, Radio City will continue to leverage the power of radio to bring about a positive change in our society.

Riders Music Festival turns out to be a big success this year too

Shirley Setia, Bhuvam Bham kept audience engaged with new-age rapping and some soulful music

exchange4media Staff 17 hours ago


Rider’s Music Festival has managed to grab the attention of Delhiites, continuing with last year’s success.

This year, Riders Music Festival (RMF) showcased a perfect line-up of contemporary musicians with different genres of music at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi. From Nucleya’s high octane gig, Lucky Ali’s husky Bollywood charm to Mame Khan’s folk music, Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium saw over 20 thousand biking and music enthusiasts. 

Adding jazz to the line-up, was Shirley Setia’s filmy vocals with Divine’s new-age rapping and some soulful music with Bhuvam Bham. Strategically placed as the weekender before Christmas amidst Delhi’s winter, RMF brought forth the best of everything. 

With more than 30 brand associations and partnerships, 16 + artists and multiple experience zones, including flea markets, gaming arena and adventure zones, Riders Music Festival is a joint intellectual property by RED FM and Phoenix Live. 

A two-day-long action-packed event combining the best of music and motorcycles, the festival began with biking groups riding to the event on both days.  The venue was flooded with an interesting myriad of grub stations and food trucks to tantalize tastebuds and mixologies of the best concoction for the guests who were present. With tarot card reading counters, bike stunt shows and customizations the guests were left truly mesmerized. 

Nisha Narayanan, COO, RED FM said: “The amount of passion shown by the bikers last year at the Riders Music Festival sealed the deal and this year we were back with a bang. To be able to let out, relax, have delicious food, listen to your favourite musicians and showcase your passion through breath-taking stunts, made for a conducive experience. The first year of Riders Music Festival was a huge success. We knew we had to come back, but with even higher energies. The artists who performed were very carefully hand-picked as we want the festival to be both for the biking as well as non-biking community. It is ‘the one-stop destination’ for everyone and we are truly grateful for the phenomenal response the fest has received this year too.”

The story delves into the life of Madhav (Avinash Sachdev) and his childhood friend Vaidehi (Aditi Rawat). Her main motive is to bring back cheer, happiness and love in Madhav’s life after his wife Chitra’s (Anjali Priya) tragic death. Furthermore, depicting an invaluable bond of friendship and love, ‘Main Bhi Ardhangini’ will give a glimpse of the selfless effort and unconditional love that Vaidehi (Aditi Rawat) showers on Madhav. 

The show will also bring out the eternal side of love and how the spirit of Madhav’s first wife will do everything to keep them together and shield them against any source of evil even after death. 

Speaking about the concept of the show, Vishnu Shankar, Head of &TV said, “We are excited to kickstart the year with the launch of ‘Main Bhi Ardhangini’, an adaptation of the very popular Zee Tamil show ‘Yaaradi Nee Mohini’ which has been successfully retold in many other languages.

The saga, a complete package of emotions, brings alive on screen a warm narrative and relatable characters each trying to deal with life, loss and love.”
Talking about the show and its concept, Shariq Patel, CEO, Essel Vision Productions said, “Romance as a genre is an all-time favourite with viewers.

The story brings forward a unique relationship that is interwoven in a thread of love which surpasses even death.” 

Actor Avinash Sachdev who plays Madhav said, “My character is an extremely righteous man who doesn’t carry any sort of malice in his heart. Shy and reserved, he is respectful of his elders, especially his mother Nilambari, even though she is his step-mother. Madhav is torn between the memories of his dead wife Chitra and the unconditional love received from his childhood friend Vaidehi. ‘Main Bhi Ardhangini’ is a beautifully written romantic tale and it gives me immense pleasure to be a part of this story.” 

He further said: “I also want to sincerely appeal to and urge all &TV loyalists, viewers and fans to subscribe to the Zee bouquet of channels, starting February 1, as per the new subscription scheme.” 

Playing the role of Madhav’s childhood friend Vaidehi, Aditi Rawat said, “Vaidehi is a young and naïve girl; yet an extremely grounded soul who believes that every person is good at heart. She is full of life and is adored by everyone. Her selfless love for Madhav and her dedicated efforts to bring back joy in his life again is inspiring and rare. She will play a pivotal part in his life and I am excited to essay this role. I am also doubly excited to shoot this show as we will be in Jaipur throughout. The colourful backdrop and vibrant culture of the city lends itself beautifully to the show and it will be a visual treat for the viewers. So, to keep watching &TV and its shows, do choose the attractively priced ZEE Family Pack and stay entertained.”
