Hindi India-centric infotainment channel Epic TV is celebrating three years on television on November 19. Launched in 2014, Epic has been engaging viewers with innovative content of India’s untold stories across various genres.

Epic offers shows such as Raja Rasoi Aur Anya Kahaniyaan, Tyohar ki Thaali, Umeed India, Indipedia, Devlok with Devdutt Patnaik, Sanrachna, Stories by Rabindranath Tagore, Kahi Suni, Ekaant and more.

In a short span of three years, the Epic family has grown to include a host of popular and critically-acclaimed artists such as Sakshi Tanwar, Virendra Sehwag, Ranveer Brar, Nasseruddin Shah, Javed Akhtar, Devdutt Patnaik, Javed Jaffery – leading some of the most followed series on the channel. Artists such as Ram Kapoor, Ali Asgar and Kavita Kaushik have joined the episodes as special guests.

Actress Sakshi Tanwar, said, “I am personally a keen follower of the shows aired on Epic as the content has great entertainment value at the same time highlights India’s rich culture and heritage. Also festivals are an important part of Indian traditions and sharing recipes related to festivals, more so, the ones that have been passed down to me from my mother is a nostalgic experience.”

Having marked strategic content deals with leading international content platforms such as Netflix and making a foray into the digital entertainment landscape with the freshly-launched Epic On app. The channel also continues to rank high on the popularity charts with the highest time spent viewing on Epic within the infotainment genre.

Epic is set to add a host of new shows beginning with the soon-to-be-launched Sharanam – narrated by Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla.

Juhi Chawla said, “India is an ancient civilisation, with a rich history and deep culture of spiritualism. I was in London when I was approached with the concept of Sharanam, I was intrigued, charmed and immediately agreed to present the show. Sharanam is truly different in every sense of the word as it highlights the faith and spiritual connection of India’s eminent places of worship, something that hasn’t been showcased on television before. I am happy to join the Epic family and celebrate three years of Epic.”

Epic has cemented its position in the BARC ranking and has recently made its entry into the Top 5 Infotainment channels, according to BARC’s all-India data Week 35.

Aditya Pittie, Managing Director, Epic TV, said, “We are extremely delighted with the support the viewers have conferred in us. Three years of Epic have been exciting with a repositioned channel that showcases India and its many stories in the most unique way possible. We’re eagerly looking forward to strengthen our content offering with more indigenous content such Sharanam and other series.”

Commenting on his association with Epic, Raja Rasoi host and chef, Ranveer Brar, said, “Epic has given a unique facelift to culture and cuisine-based shows. Raja Rasoi Aur Andaz Anokha is more of a food lab with so much freedom both for the host and the viewer to stay hooked on to and explore. I am looking forward to many more seasons for the show.”

A veteran in mythology, Devdutt Pattanaik said, “As Epic completes three years, I would like to say Happy Birthday and thank you Epic for bringing Devlok to every home in India and helping people appreciate Indian culture better."
