 Viu and Star Suvarna Launch McDowell’s No1 Soda No.1 Yaari with Shivanna

Friendship and brotherhood is the support system that sees millennials through moments of self-doubt and obstacles and is truly responsible for shaping them. McDowell’s No1 Soda by Diageo India and the global Video-on-Demand OTT service by Vuclip and PCCW – Viu, are now bringing alive such friendships of well-known personalities from real to reel life in a brand-new talk show called No. 1 Yaari with Shivanna in collaboration with Mindshare & Group M. The series will be hosted by superstar Shivrajkumar, who is known to be a true friend in the entertainment industry. The show will be simulcast on Viu & Star Suvarna starting February 25, 2018, every Sunday 8.00-9.00PM

The show brings together for the first time as guests, Sandalwood stars and their real-life BFFs who will share their behind-the-door secrets, friendship defining moments and play interesting games with Shivrajkumar, while the fans will be treated to some never seen before videos and the audience, get to ask their favourite stars questions to know them better.

“No. 1 Yaari is a first of its kind entertaining show curated for the viewers that will help celebrate the spirit of brotherhood and friendship. I value friendship since it has been one strong support pillar in my personal journey. As much as the stars are public figures, they have a side that is still private and under wraps and my job will be to help them open-up. I would love them to share how their friendships have shaped them as individuals as well as have the fans privy to some unrevealed fun and friendly moments from their lives,” said Shivrajkumar, Actor & Anchor of the No.1 Yaari Show

Commenting the new show Amarpreet Singh, Executive Vice President & Portfolio Head, Marketing, Diageo India, said, “Curating a show that is all about Yaari by joining hands with people who matter, was always on our agenda. With McDowell’s No. 1 soda No.1 Yaari with Shivanna we are excited to co-produce a show that brings you closer to such stories of brotherhood between renowned artists which is something audiences would look up to. Also, with this we look to take a step forward in creating more engaging content to connect and engage with the millennials of today!”

Elaborating on the show, Sameer Gogate, Head of Monetization & Distribution, Viu India, said, “With an endeavour to show premium content, we at Viu are extensively establishing content franchises that will appeal to the millennials nationwide. The franchise ‘No. 1 Yaari’ is one such exciting addition to our original content library that brings fans in touch with the personal life of popular celebrities. After Success of the show in Telugu we are glad to extend our long-standing partnership with Group M as we expand our content library with yet another engaging show hosted by an Iconic superstar of the Kannada film industry”

“It’s a great moment of delight for us to have Shivanna as the host for the very emotional and feel good show. It is a treat to see him with stars getting connected to one another and give the audience glorious joyous time on Sundays at 8pm," said spokesperson of Star Suvarna.
