Astro Brings ‘Naan Kabali Alla’ to Empower Youths

  • 07 Sep 2018

Kuala Lumpur, 7th September 2018 – The successful development of our nation lies in our younger generation, and it is necessary that we inspire them to push through in the face of adversity. As part of efforts to highlight and offer solutions to social issues faced by Malaysian Indian youth, Astro Vaanavil (CH 201) will be launching a new drama series, Naan Kabali Alla. 

Premiering on 9 September 2018, the drama is set to air every Sunday at 8pm. Viewers also can catch Naan Kabali Alla on Astro GO and On Demand.

Dr. Rajamani Chellamuthu, Senior Vice President of Indian Customer Business said: "The Malaysian Indian community, especially its youth, face many social issues including dropping out of school. There is more to this issue than meets the eye and reasons can range from a simple lack of interest to complex issues such as mental health, bullying, drugs, and poverty.  It is necessary to acknowledge the reality and struggles Malaysian Indian youth face where 20% of those between 13 to 17 years old will drop out of school before reaching Form Five. At Astro, we can help shape public and youth opinion through our engaging and compelling story-telling. Our new drama series, Naan Kabali Alla addresses social issues faced by this community and we make it a point to highlight skills and opportunities available for these youths facing tough social pressures.” 

The 13-episode series, directed by R. P. Ravi and Bharathirajaa, also highlights social crimes such as gangsterism, drug addiction, and smuggling, in hopes of providing those affected by this way of life with solutions to overcome their hardships and find their ‘light at the end of the tunnel’. 

The drama series will feature local artists including Jasmin Michael, David Anthony, Sam, Dr. Selvamuthu, Yasmin Nadiah, Rajam, K. S. Maniam alongside international artists Bose Venkat, Vijith, Nirosha, and Aishwarya.
