Head On Media has announced a special six-part series ‘Monty Panesar In Lockdown With’, produced by Audio Content Fund, which will be broadcasting on various Asian radio stations in the UK from this week.

Talking about the initiative, Panesar said, “As much as the lockdown was such an uncertain time for so many of us, I saw it as a great opportunity to have a chat with some people who have been great figureheads for the Asian community over the years. I loved getting to know more about their inspirational stories and what makes them tick, so I’m sure you will too!”
Guests for ‘Monty Panesar In Lockdown With…’ include former England cricketer Mark Ramprakash, businessman Lord Rami Ranger, musician Nitin Sawhney, actress Nina Wadia, chef Asma Khan and comedian Paul Chowdhry.
