It is recognized to be a hub for dramatics. Recognizing this, Q Marathi’s launch of  “Q Marathi Youth-Full Mahakarandak”, is a step forward in creating a platform that will showcase the best of young talent and bring stories that are original and fresh into the limelight. This program is a first of its kind in Maharashtra and is expected to drive engagement within the local creator community and among advertisers like Reckitt Benckiser who are seeking to reach them.  This style of an integrated, multi-platform property is one of the many initiatives on our slate in the coming year and we are thrilled that brands are showing immense faith in this approach to achieve engagement with young consumers.”
