Remember Ranbir Kapoor's angry boss, Sunil Puri, in Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year? The scheming, short-tempered boss, Manish Chaudhari, will now be seen in a totally different avatar: As a champion for raising awareness about farmer's suicide in the country.
Chaudhari will be part of a show, called Code Red, which will premiere on January 19, on COLORS TV. It will be presented by actor Sakshi Tanwar. He plays an NGO representative who runs a suicide helpline for farmers in the show that tackles three burning issues facing India in six episodes.
"With Code Red, we are going a step further by showcasing stories of human frailties and urging people to speak up on issues that are disturbing to them and the people around them. It is not just a show but a movement to get people believe that hope can be found," said Raj Nayak, CEO Colors.
