The Journey of India, a new six-part series produced by Warner Bros. Discovery to commemorate India's 75th anniversary of Independence, has unveiled its impressive roster of well-known individuals. Each episode will be hosted by Amitabh Bachchan and include a prominent voice to highlight a significant issue in India's development as a country.

Kajol introduces audiences to Bollywood's enthralling past against the backdrop of an actual film put into motion, shining a light on the storytelling that revolutionised international filmmaking. Actor and conservationist Rana Daggubati and novelist and wildlife conservationist Latika Nath from India applaud India's outstanding conservation and sustainability programmes. Famous author Amish Tripathi honours the variety of religions in India, while Michelin-starred chef Vikas Khanna investigates the appetizingness of Indian food while relating his origins to the influence it has had on other cuisines.

In addition to Hema Malini, Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman, venerable industrialist Anand Mahindra, celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor, female banking pioneer Naina Lal Kidwai, climate change activist Vani Murthy, fashion designer Ritu Kumar, and renowned dietician Rujuta Diwekar, The Journey of India is produced by Black Iris for Warner Bros. Discovery.


Kajol said when discussing the cooperation and expressing her delight that Bollywood is an enigma that brilliantly amalgamates India's ardent spirit of creation, inventiveness, and artistic sensibility. It is an honour for her to give a show to the audience that honours the long heritage of Indian film, which has long catered to the preferences of a wide variety of spectators. Bollywood has served as an inspiration to the worldwide film industry thanks to its exquisite cinematography, gifted performers, classic songs, and unique plots, among other things, and she's honoured to work in this field.

According to Rana Daggubati, The Journey of India shows the rich results of India's collective labour and sheer willpower. Being environmentally mindful and adopting sustainability as a nation is wonderful, especially at this critical juncture in the climate change problem. The network's contributions to advancing environmental awareness and igniting the green movement are still unmatched. Thus, the actor considers it an honour to be a part of a show that highlights these astounding accomplishments.

The Journey of India makes its global streaming platform discovery+ debut in the Philippines, the US, the UK, and India. It will be shown on Discovery Network stations in more than 140 nations, including India, Japan, Singapore, France, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Brazil, Iran, and Kenya.
