A legacy of passivity and acceptance is giving way to a society that is
demanding and driving change. Armed with optimism, young millennial minds
are leading the way, becoming change makers, because they believe their
innovative ideas and spirits are bigger than the odds they face. “TED Talks
India Nayi Baat” turns the spotlight on ordinary Indians doing extraordinary
work. These visionaries and everyday heroes will spark new conversations,
infuse movements with energy and inspire a billion imaginations to action.

The show will be aired over weekends in Hindi, English, Tamil, Bangla and
Telugu across Star Plus, Nat Geo, Hotstar and Star World, starting November

Sanjay Gupta, Country Manager, Star & Disney India, said, “With TED Talks
India Nayi Baat, our goal is to showcase, celebrate and support the unsung
visionaries who are working towards making a positive impact on society. I
believe that a nation is built on the ideas and values of its people. We
hope that the ideas and work of our featured speakers inspire our youth to
don the role of a social change agent.”

Shah Rukh Khan said, “On the show, I witnessed so much passion – people with
pathbreaking ideas are disrupting the shackles of the impossible and finding
solutions. TED Talks India is a mirror of the new face of India. It is all
about being future ready and future focused. I am in awe of the diverse
spectrum of speakers this season. On one hand, we have a 13-year-old
scientist creating amazing inventions; on the other is a woman from
Bundelkhand empowering thousands of Indian girls. This kind of television
content is time-defining. It is the need of the hour.”

Chris Anderson, Head of TED, added, “India has a spirit of optimism and
continuous evolution that’s beautifully captured in this series. From
speakers on the TED stage to hundreds of TEDx events organized across the
country, TED has had a longstanding relationship with India. We’re thrilled
to continue to collaborate with Star Network to showcase the brilliant ideas
that can shape the India of tomorrow.”

Tuning into the intelligent audience in this new India, aware of its
potential and possibilities, Star Plus is committed to developing landmark
content that is both entertaining and socially progressive. Over the years,
milestone shows like Satyamev Jayate, Rubaru Roshni and the recent live
