Speaking about the world premiere TV9 editor News9 MediaVerse - English cluster Rakesh Khar said, “Duologue with Barun Das is the perfect blend of an eclectic discussion worthy of prime-time showcase, as well as an OTT series that stands the test of time. With the first season now premiering on Connected TVs, the synergy between News9 Live and News9 Plus truly comes to light. And that’s the convergence model at play at News9 Mediaverse.”
News9 Live deputy managing editor Kartikeya Sharma said, “Duologue is not a typical TV interview, it is a stimulating piece of conversation, which is like a breath of fresh air in a cluttered audio-visual world. The series encompasses distinguished achievers from all walks of life, who have left an indelible mark in their respective fields.”
Along with an updated play out of the News9 Plus season of Duologue, the connected TV and app convergence would truly happen on 29 September with a simulcast of the final episode of Duologue with Barun Das Season 01, featuring celebrated cardiac surgeon and founder of Narayana Health Dr Devi Shetty.
