This weekend, Indian megastar SHAH RUKH KHAN will host the first-ever collaboration between TED Talks and a major Indian network, Star India, which will premiere on the online digital platform, Hotstar before it hits television. Called TED Talks India Nayi Soch, the seven-episode series will showcase some of the best innovators and thinkers of Indian origin debuting their TED Talks in a language other than English (Hindi). Tune in to the world premiere, available starting Sunday, December 10th from 7:30 a.m. ET onwards at www.us.hotstar.com.
Another genre of original, cutting-edge programming that is exclusive to Hotsar is the CinePlay. In this era of constant innovation, Cineplay is a novel attempt at storytelling by combining the grammar of theatre and power of cinema. It is an innovation that presents timeless theatrical dramas as digitally-immersive experiences and is especially calibrated for all screen sizes.
CinePlays are not just live recordings of a play. Sets are created especially for each production, and much like a film, a CinePlay is shot over a span of several days. With an elaborate camera, light and production set up, CinePlays weave elements of cinema into stories from theatre to create a whole new experience for Hotstar audiences.
Some of the most popular CinePlays on Hotstar include: Dance Like a Man, Between the Lines, Bombay Talkies, Typecaste and Adhe Adhure, starring the finest theatre actors of the generation like Nandita Das, Saurabh Shukla, Lillete Dubey and Darshan Jariwala.
