Indian tennis star, Sania Mirza, who is currently in Karachi to watch Pakistan Super League (PSL) 5 remaining matches, is all set to make her digital debut in web series MTV Nishedh Alone Together.
The web series MTV Nishedh Alone Together aims to raise awareness about tuberculosis. It will be launching in the end of this month.
However, the show’s central theme is to raise knowledge about the disease and shed light on the dire need of proper medication to treat it.
“TB continues to be one of the most chronic health issues in our country. With about half of the diagnosed cases under the age of 30, there is an urgent need to tackle fallacies around it and drive a perception change,” Sania Mirza said.
“MTV Nishedh Alone Together conveys that in a unique and impactful way. The youth of today is more aware, sensitive, and conscious about issues that plague our country. TB is a continuing menace, and its impact has only worsened through the pandemic. The fight to curb TB is more difficult now than ever and that’s what prompted me to come on board. As someone who is in a place of influence, I hope my presence helps in some way to collectively fight the societal conventions and bring about a positive change.”
The series has a total of five-episodes and will revolve around a young couple, Vicky and Megha, played by Syed Raza Ahmed and Priya Chauhan respectively.
Moreover, the tennis star’s character will discuss the issues that young couples faced amid the Covid-19 lockdown.
The series will release on the social media handles of MTV India and MTV Nishedh.
