Sony to present life-altering narratives in new show Zindagi Ke Crossroads
Sony Entertainment Television is all set to premiere a new show, ‘Zindagi Ke Crossroads’, from June 6, 2018. The show will air every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8.30 pm.
Touted as a first-of-its kind format on prime time television in India, ‘Zindagi Ke Crossroads’ will show relatable life-altering narratives inspired from the drama of life and before a ‘Crossroad’ decision is taken. It will be put forth to the studio audience, which will be a representation of India in some measure, for deliberation and see what most of us would’ve done. For the viewers, it’ll be a ‘mirror-of-introspection’ and for some, an enabler of life in the days to come.
Hosted by popular television actor Ram Kapoor, ‘Zindagi Ke Crossroads’ will present a new narrative every episode and the Crossroads faced by the protagonists will be open for discussion to a unique set of studio audiences. Kapoor will not just encourage the audience to share their views, but will also delve into the “Whys” of their decision making so as to bring alive the melting pot of opinions in the audience for the narratives showcased. The question thrown open to the audience will be “What would you have done if you were at this Crossroad?”
The show has been produced by Shabinaa Khan, who has been closely associated with the Indian film industry, while the concept, story and screenplay has been developed by Mahadev, who has been an integral part of Vijendra Prasad’s & SS Rajamouli’s team.
Commenting on the new show, Danish Khan, Executive Vice President, and Business Head, Sony Entertainment Television, said, “Sony Entertainment Television has always been a pioneer and we are delighted to present “Zindagi ke Crossroads” an absolutely never seen before format, which has both scripted and unscripted component. This unique format, produced by Shabinaa, is the brainchild of show runner Mahadev. We are also pleased to present Ram Kapoor in a never seen before avatar, as the host of the non-scripted part of this show. We are confident this unique show will delight and surprise our audience.”
Shabina Khan, Producer of ‘Zindagi Ke Crossroads’, added here, “When Mahadev narrated the concept to me, it got me thinking… why not produce this show. It’s contextually very appropriate and relevant in today’s times. In fact, I have also found myself at crossroads in life where I didn’t have anyone to point me in the any direction. It’s my choices and decisions that have shaped my life the way it is now. I am grateful to Sony Entertainment Television for putting their faith in us and offering us all the backing in creating this first-of-its-kind show.”
“We all have overcome certain crossroads in our lives with a feeling that we are the only ones that it is happening to. It can be frustrating and overwhelming. But life moves on and we feel enriched with the experience. Every time that I surpassed a crossroad, it made me think that could I have been better prepared? This very thought was how the show was conceptualised. The stories will only help in sensitising the viewers that there is no right or wrong decision when it comes to going past the life’s crossroads,” remarked Mahadev, the concept, story and screenplay writer of ‘Zindagi Ke Crossroads’.
