This caters to the rising demands of the niche audiences keen to connect with Indian cultural heritage. Chingari will be able to provide its users content of OMTV Originals through their app. These varied programmes offer a range of shows from mythology & culture to food & history.
Within the first month of its launch, OMTV’s rich and diverse content saw a demand and Chingari India’s fastest growing short-video sharing platform has collaborated with the platform owners.
