To quote Shailaja Kejriwal, EVP-Content, NDTV Imagine said, "Mahima Shani Dev Ki presents a new approach to storytelling. The show has a collection of interesting stories which open your eyes to new thoughts and learning's. A key aspect of this show is that it seeks to remove the tag of negativity and superstition attached to this god. It also looks to highlight an important yet often misunderstood facet about Lord Shani, which is to follow the path of righteousness, for he rewards those who follow this path and severely punishes only those who do wrong."
NDTV Imagine has so far only given good programs compared to Star Plus Channel and Mahima Shanidev ki is definitely going to be the jewel in the crown.
