'Mission Sapne' is back for its second run. The show provides dramatic entertainment with a strong social message as entertainers from different industries willingly live the common man’s professional life for a day.
'Mission Sapne Season 2' will feature 10 celebrated entertainers who will showcase their talent as they work their magic to learn the professional ongoings and tricks of the trade to raise funds in support of a deserving commoner.
Along with some hard work, celebrities will further raise the entertainment quotient through impromptu activities like gully cricket, song and dance-led requests, special tips, reciting blockbuster dialogues, comedy and mimicry, selfies, on-the-spot competitions, dares and challenges.
The first episode of the season will feature Vidya Balan as she steps into the shoes of Manju, Jaipur’s only female porter. Donning the hat of a coolie and moving travellers’ luggage across Jaipur’s Sindhi Camp Bus Stand, Vidya will leverage her star power to raise funds for, single mother and breadwinner, Manju’s benefit.
Be it taking tips from Manju on how to effectively carry heavy luggage from one point to another, or inviting Jaipur locals to support her cause, Vidya tries her hand at it all. In fact, the actor will even be seen climbing atop a bus and mingling with the male coolies at the bus stand to ensure that she is able to maximize her one-day time limit and turn messiah for Manju.
Commenting on her experience, Vidya said, “I was extremely touched when an old woman who sells combs at the bus station came up to me and appreciated my efforts. She said that she left her customers unattended because she wanted to click a picture with me. She gave me 10 rupees and tons of blessings and it simply made my day. I salute Manju for her determination and will power with which she does her job so brilliantly.”
This season will see actor Sonali Bendre return as the host for the second season in a row as she narrates the awe-inspiring success stories of the one-day professional endeavours of celebrities and the person they will be supporting.
