Star News had earlier announced a new weekly programme called ‘Reality Bites’ for Saturday. Anchored by the channel’s popular host Barkha Dutt, the programme focuses on reporting from the places of events. It will include footage and interviews to bring a complete picture from the eye of the storm.
