Big FM celebrated Independence Day at Siachen with Big ‘Paigham – Sarhad Ke Naam.’ The RJs of Big FM - Prateek, Balaji, Shruthi and Abhimanyu will host an event for the jawans. The RJs, along with the ‘Saturday Saturday’ singer Akriti Kakkar, also interacted with the jawans. What’s more Kakkar also performed peppy and soulful numbers for the jawans.

Radio City

The radio station wants listeners to be united and have asked them to host a family belonging to a community other than theirs for a dayand try to find the differences between the two.

Also on 15 August, one prominent band will be featured in the ‘Freedom Hour’ and will perform live for a couple of hours at the Lal Bagh Bandstand.
