Mumbai: On the back of its successful, decade-long association with Lalbaugcha Raja, this year too Shemaroo Entertainment, India’s leading content powerhouse, has announced that the festivities and poojas at Lalbaugcha Raja would be telecasted live across Shemaroo’s online platforms including their own OTT ShemarooMe. The telecast would bring the “LIVE Darshan” of Lalbaugcha Raja to the homes of devotees. Shemaroo will also distribute the content of Lalbaugcha Raja (video and images) to all leading telecom operators across the country as well as other online and DTH platforms.

Consumers can download the ShemarooMe app to enjoy the feed of the LIVE Darshan and Maha Aarti of Lord Ganesha across screens whenever and wherever they are. Viewers can also access the telecast on Shemaroo’s subscriptions services on all DTH operators. It will also be available on Shemaroo’s Hindu devotional app ‘Shemaroo Bhakti’. Simply give a missed call on 9983371222 to download the app to watch Live Darshan free without any additional cost.

Consumers who wish to enjoy the LIVE Darshan on their TV sets will have to subscribe to the devotional service from their DTH operators. LIVE Darshan will be available on Airtel – Om Shakti (Service No 674), Tata Sky - Devotion (Service No 1051), Dish - Bhakti Active (Service No 1069) & D2H (Service No 1203). Shemaroo will also distribute the live feed via some selected mobile apps & websites to reach out to maximum audience.

Shemaroo Entertainment, CEO, Hiren Gada said, “We are glad that this year again, we have associated with the Lalbaug Ganeshostav Mandal to bring the Lord’s blessings to consumers’ homes. With the pandemic restricting crowds and the requirement of social distancing, we hope that the live telecast will allow people who are unable to come personally to take Darshan online. We are glad that we could harness the power of technology to bring the Ganesh Utsav celebrations live from the most famous pandal to them.”

Lalbaugcha Raja Sarvajanik Ganeshostav Mandal, secretary, Sudhir Salvi added, “Our association with Shemaroo goes back to over a decade. The tie-up enables millions of people to take Darshan of the Lord even if they are unable to visit. This year, with the pandemic, we need to be more careful and adhere to the social distancing norms and hence the Live darshan will enable millions of people who can’t visit Lalbaug to take bappa's blessings. Shemaroo’s reach across platforms will let devotees enjoy the Live darshan of Lalbaugcha Raja in their own comfort & we are thankful to Shemaroo for this support.”

Shemaroo also won the ‘Best LIVE Streaming’ award at vIDEA 2019 for Shemaroo Bhakti Facebook page for the above offering. There was a hiatus in 2020 due to the pandemic, and Lalbaugcha Raja returns this year.
