Thursday, August 09, 2018

National Geographic announced yesterday, the final list of India's biggest personalities that it will feature in its upcoming series, 'Mega Icons'. Cricketer Virat Kohli and politician & actor Kamal Haasan would be two personalities it will showcase in this new series, which has a unique format. The complete set of 'icons' that has been released now, brings together some of the most inspiring personalities, selected carefully from varied walks of life. This includes former president of India – APJ Abdul Kalam, spiritual leader & Nobel laureate Dalai Lama, and social activist & India's first woman IPS officer Kiran Bedi. Additionally, the brand has roped in R. Madhavan, who will be the host of the series.

Premiering in September with Virat Kohli's life story, each episode of the five-part series will dig deep into the lives of these five icons. Commenting on the series, R. Madhavan said, “Sometimes, we all sit back and wonder what really has made these icons what they are today? Did their journey through life, their experiences and hard work, really shape them into the giants we revere. I am excited to decode this mystery, and bring to viewers a completely new and incredible perspective.”

Shruti Takulia, Head, National Geographic & Fox India, commented, “With 'Mega Icons', we aim to dive deep into the lives of India's most exalted men and women to find the answer to an elusive question – are geniuses born or made?”
