Ajit Thakur, EVP and GM, Life OK said, “We wanted to use Diwali as a big push during this quarter so that we are considered the best GEC. And I am saying the best, not top, as beyond a point we don’t control the numbers. But we want people to stand up and take notice of this channel that is very different from the others. In the Diwali quarter we started with Dare2Dance and Ekta (Kapoor’s) show (Ajeeb Daasthan Hein Ye) is launching soon. We are set to reinvent comedy through Comedy Classes.”

EVP & Business Head of Channel V, Ajit Thakur says, “Channel V creates high-value, cross-platform content geared towards India's youth.

The show is back for a third season by popular demand and will ensure that viewers are left thoroughly entertained this time around too.”
