Speaking on the launch Manoj Bajpai says, ‘’BIG Heroes is a brilliant concept, and we need more such shows to be brought to the audience. Nowadays, we tend to focus a lot on glitz and glamor, forgetting that there are people out there who have shown real strength to serve the society without thinking about achieving fame. Both, the film ‘’Traffic’’ and the new show’’BIG Heroes with Richa Anirudh’’ will serve as a reminder of the humane acts of such real life unsung heroes by giving them due recognition.’’

It is about time that we recognize these change makers. Just like these traffic constables who went out of their way to do something for the society, we all should follow such lead and work as responsible citizens.”
Speaking on the launch Vishal Singh says,’’I am extremely honored to have worked with actors like Manoj Bajpayee, Jimmy Shergill and Divya Dutta. The movie ‘Traffic’ has been inspired from real-life situations and shows how the real ‘heroes’ of our country – the police force, have fiercely served the society with security.Further commenting on the show BIG Heroes, the actor further adds, “It’s great what the team of 92.7 BIG FM and RJ Richa Anirudh are doing; by bringing the lesser known stories of real life heroes on a platform like radio. If given a chance, I would love to be part of such an inspiring show.”

By delving deeper into their lives, their passion and determination, the show aims to reflect the enduring spirit in the minds of its listeners and inspire them.

By sharing real life stories of true heroes of the society we aim to inspire the citizens and listneres alike to take action, rather than just demand a change. As an RJ of the show its gives me immense delight to touch upon such real life incidents and the lives of inspiring personalities.”
