Big FM brings off-beat content on new show 'Uncensored With MJ Anirudh'

MUMBAI: Sensitive subjects catering to homosexuality, rape, casting couch, one-night-stands amongst many others are never a part of a discussion in our society. Taking this into consideration, Big FM in August introduced a new show called Uncensored with MJ Anirudh in Mumbai.

Being a retro station, Big FM serves a matured group of audience; initiating content like this is a step towards improvising people thoughts, a step towards a developing nation. The show airs Monday to Friday from 10 pm to 12 am providing a platform for debate in the broadcast space.

A live poll on social media introduces the ‘Topic of the Day’ in the afternoon, a day prior to the on-air programme. This activity further leads to insightful conversations, wherein listeners be a part of a healthy debate and voice their opinions. With this unconventional format, MJ Anirudh sets the stage for listeners to come forward and discuss sensitive issues, without the fear of being judged. A celebrity segment called Apke Sitare Kya Kehte Hain witnesses prominent Bollywood personalities speak about topics that they are not usually vocal about.

Commenting on the new show, Big FM’s spokesperson says, “How often do we hear people actually talk about kids receiving sex education, pornography, live-in relationships and other important topics, on such a mass scale. We at 92.7 Big FM believe in empowering our listeners and have decided to walk the talk with uncensored. We have always experimented with content that is captivating, engaging and original. Uncensored has been ideated on the same lines, with listener participation being at the core of the format. The show will provide a platform for listeners to debate on topics that are usually considered inappropriate but are important to be spoken about in the society. Through this new offering, we aim to reach a larger set of audience, which will further prove to be beneficial for our advertisers, given the new concept of the show.”
