Khan said, “Someone once asked me what’s the why of Tanhayian.. Well there isn’t a person who hasn’t experienced the loss of a loved one.. And every time we lose someone it changes who we are….So here are two people who are dealing with that loss in their own different way.. But sometimes someone walks right into that loneliness and Phir aap tanhayion mein bhi Tanha nahi rehte… Tanhaiyaan is a tribute to that magic…”
Hotstar entered into the original content production with a talk show hosted by RJ Malishka called ‘M Bole Toh’. It also aired a 20 episodic news comedy series ‘On Air with AIB’ with 10 in English and 10 in Hindi. The streaming platform is also rumoured to bring the second season of the show soon.
