The WORLD Channel introduces
popular UK actor, comedian and writer Sanjeev Bhaskar, who brings his
trademark humor and insight to a series of journeys across India.
India was once regarded as an almost mythical land; a land of untold riches, of the Taj Mahal and the
tiger and in some ways, it still is. But over the past 60 years, India has changed more rapidly than any
other nation on the planet. Behind the Bollywood kitsch and the lurid colors, India is now a country
coming of age. Today, the worlds finest software engineers live
alongside abject poverty, and state-of-the-art call centers nestle in
among the shanty towns and crumbling temples.
Born and raised in Britain but with an Indian heritage, Sanjeev Bhaskar
is in a unique position to bring this extraordinary country to life for a
21st-century audience as he gets under the skin of the worlds latest
superpower, a country of chaos and contradictions.
With Sanjeev Bhaskar" airs exclusively on the WORLD Channel (AETN-3) on four
consecutive Mondays, beginning September 19 at 7 p.m.
