The second edition of the TV show 'Mission Sapne', which features celebrities using their fame for the benefit of the common man, is set to premiere on Sunday.
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.
"Following a stupendous response to season one of 'Mission Sapne', it is time to charge ahead with an all-new set of celebrities who have displayed extraordinary passion and commitment towards bettering lives that deserve a helping hand," Colors CEO Raj Nayak said in a statement.
Produced by Sobo Films, 'Mission Sapne' season 2 will feature 10 celebrated names, 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.
The first episode of the season will feature actress Vidya Balan as she steps into the shoes of Manju, Jaipur's 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 Manju's benefit.
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 Rs.10 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."
The show will see actress Sonali Bendre returning 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.
