Speaking on the initiative Vinay Manek Singh, National Programming Head, MY FM said “Under this initiative, we will do reality checks to mask monitors, from busting myths to talking about how not to come under pressure and still follow protocols, from stories of corona warriors to fatigue stories of health line workers, from having important statues wear a mask to having mannequins in stores wear a mask, MY FM will be going all-out to influence listeners to stop laxity and carelessness”

Mr. Rahul Namjoshi, COO, MY FM adds “Our country has a natural fighting spirit. It is this spirit that, since ages, has made us fight and win over any crisis.

The video personifies Litti & Chokha where Litti is a popular, self-made woman who is in love with Chokha. However, Chokha – a Casanova has switching loyalties which disappoints Litti. Nevertheless, they both know that they complete each other and are madly in love with.

While the video depicts the love between the couple Litti & Chokha, it’s now time for viewers to also show their love for their favourite dish. Viewers are invited to share how do they enjoy Litti Chokha in different ways.
