NDTV Good Times, India’s youngest lifestyle channel is taking you to the most luxurious city in the world-Dubai with the launch of its new series Dubai Diaries. A TV series that brings to life all that Dubai has to offer to the Indian traveller; from food and fashion, shopping and entertainment, hotels and beaches to couple getaways and family reunions.
The most unique offering of the five episode series remains that a different anchor will host each episode. The thematic distribution of each episode covers an ocean of variety that Dubai has to offer. Irrespective of whether you are couple, family, foodie, shopaholic, business traveller, Dubai Dairies will manage to gratify all your senses.
To announce the show, and to get a glimpse of the content, NDTV Good Times hosted Delhi Bloggers to an evening of interaction with 3 of the hosts from the show Ambika Anand, Freishia and Neha Dixit, at the Hauz Khas Social.
The ambience was created to give a look and feel of Dubai, with matteresses and bolsters for seating, and some unique cocktails created by an expert bar tender at Social along with some lip smacking snacks.
Ambika, Freishia and Neha, each shared their experiences from the travel and the aspects that they respectively covered. Ambika would be covering Dubai from a shopper’s perspective with a special focus on Wedding Shopping, while Neha Dixit will explore the adventure activities that Dubai has to offer and Freishia will uncover Dubai from a completely new angle, Dubai as a romantic getaway, which mostly we don’t associate Dubai with.
The series will open with Actress Sumona Chakravarty visiting the most talked about places in Dubai.
There would also be an episode with Chef Kunal Kapoor discovering and unfolding the culinary experiences Dubai has to offer.
Announcing the launch, Arati Singh, Channel Head, NDTV Good Times said, “While Dubai is a familiar destination for most travellers, we intend to bring out a new side of Dubai with this show. We are hopeful our viewers will live the Dubai experience through memorable anchor stories and through the visual aesthetics of the city itself.”
At the event, I also indulged in a candid chat with Mandakini , who is the director of the show and Damini, who has produced the series. They went on to share how different it was visiting Dubai this time from a new angle and how they completed 10 episodes in 34 days of shoot. The next five episodes will be aired around October, the other season of holidays. We all had a lot of fun clicking selfies and indulging in chit chat with the anchors.
As of now, catch these 5 episodes, every Thursday at 8PM only on NDTV Good Times, and repeats through the week.
