ALT Balaji, India’s leading homegrown OTT platform, in association with Ketto India, launched Oonchi Udaan —an initiative that will help in empowering women across our country. Through this initiative, the OTT player aims to create a deep impact in contributing towards women’s welfare in order to get them ready for the future and face the world with utmost confidence. As part of the initiative, Rs.5 from each ALT Balaji subscription will be donated as proceedings towards this cause. It has always been ALT Balaji’s endeavour to portray the strength of today’s Indian woman with each of its initiatives and even the strong characterization of women depicted in its shows.
Oonchi Udaan will work towards the betterment of the underprivileged women of our society by providing them with education, teaching life-skills and enhancing their livelihood skills. In addition to that, it will also help build a strong 360-degree life of learning and economic foundation that equips women to escape the cycle of poverty.
Extending her support, actress Mona Singh said, "There are so many untold stories which hardly get a chance to fly and only some of them come in view of the world, like M-O-M. In order to give those dreams wings and change the lives of underprivileged women in India, Oonchi Udaan is a very special initiative taken by ALT Balaji in association with KETTO India. On behalf of M-O-M, I request everyone to come forward and pledge their support."
Also, actress Palomi Ghosh commented, "I want to make a special appeal on behalf of the whole team of M-O-M for 'Oonchi Udaan', an ALT Balaji initiative to raise funds for women in various fields across India. Please come forward and support this initiative as this will give wings to million dreams of women, empowering women which will empower our country in the end."
ALT Balaji with its latest web series M.O.M – Mission Over Mars, showcased an inspiring story of determination and faith of four women scientists who led the Mars mission. They not only led it but made it a resounding success despite the lack of resources, time and at the brunt of constant doubts and taunts. To help kick-start this initiative, the digital platform is donating towards the cause through every new subscription they receive for Mission-Over-Mars.
With the brand’s presence being extremely strong amongst a wide cross-section of the population in the country, the initiative will help to create awareness and acceptance amongst the masses. Building on the legacy of creating iconic shows, ALT Balaji’s exclusive content library has built a catalogue of more than 45 Originals like ‘Apharan,’ ‘Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain,’ ‘Home,’ ‘Gandii Baat’, ‘The Test Case’, ‘Bose: Dead or Alive’ among others, which continue to be lauded by viewers across the globe.
