Tennis star Sania Mirza is all set to make her digital debut with the web series, ‘MTV Nishedh Alone Together’.
The series ‘self-shot-at-home’ is aimed at raising awareness about tuberculosis (TB) and highlights the importance of proper medication, especially in COVID-19 times.
As being reported, the fiction series is a spin-off of the TV show MTV Nishedh.
It will be released on the social media handles of MTV India and MTV Nishedh in the last week of November.
The five-episode series will examine the challenges faced by a young couple, Vicky and Megha (played by Syed Raza Ahmed and Priya Chauhan).
Sania will be seen playing herself and discussing the trials young couples faced during the lockdown.
The ‘self-shot-at-home’ series spotlights the need to raise awareness around TB and throw light on the importance of proper medication, especially in the COVID-19 era.
Earlier talking to an Indian publication about the series, Sania said, “TB continues to be one of the most chronic health issues in our country. With about half of the diagnosed cases under the age of 30, there is an urgent need to tackle fallacies around it and drive a perception change.”
“MTV Nishedh Alone Together conveys that in a unique and impactful way. The youth of today is more aware, sensitive, and conscious about issues that plague our country. The fight to curb TB is more difficult now than ever and that’s what prompted me to come on board. I hope my presence helps in some way to collectively fight the societal practices and bring about a positive change,” she added.
