The first episode of the season will feature versatile actor Vidya Balan as she steps into the shoes of Manju, Jaipur’s only female porter. Donning the hat of a coolie and moving travellers’ luggage across Jaipur’s Sindhi Camp Bus Stand, Vidya will leverage her star power to raise funds for, single mother and breadwinner, Manju’s benefit. Be it taking tips from Manju on how to effectively carry heavy luggage from one point to another, or inviting Jaipur locals to support her cause, Vidya tries her hand at it all. In fact, the actor will even be seen climbing atop a bus and mingling with the male coolies at the bus stand to ensure that she is able to maximize her one-day time limit and turn messiah for Manju. Commenting on her experience, Vidya said, “I was extremely touched when an old woman who sells combs at the bus station came up to me and appreciated my efforts. She said that she left her customers unattended because she wanted to click a picture with me. She gave me 10 rupees and tons of blessings and it simply made my day. I salute Manju for her determination and will power with which she does her job so brilliantly.”
Mission Sapne Season 2 will see actor Sonali Bendre return as the host for the second season in a row as she narrates the awe-inspiring success stories of the one-day professional endeavours of celebrities and the person they will be supporting. The title track of the show has been adapted by versatile singer Sonu Nigam whose unique rendition promises to tug at the heartstrings of audiences.
For Mission Sapne Season 2, COLORS has roped in Idea Cellular as the Associate Sponsor. The show will also be promoted across mediums through an integrated marketing approach and digital initiatives.
