Assam girl Surabhi’s reaction on the promo

“The story of Nima is not only close to my heart but it is something that I have lived and experienced at some point in my life. I am grateful that through Nima’s journey, the viewers will get to know the struggles that people of North East India go through as they are subjected to many prejudices and even called names, knowingly or unknowingly.
It is a emotional new beginning for me and I hope through this show, we can break many myths and touch million hearts…Need all your blessings and love..”, she added.
