~ The show brings alive interesting stories of struggles, inspiration and determination of young independent working women ~
MUMBAI, 2nd March, 2016: MTV, iconic youth brand, has decided to dedicate 2016 to celebrating the power of being a woman by shattering long standing stereotypes and questioning nonsensical taboos surrounding the women in India today. And to kick-start this celebration with a bang, MTV is proud to announce a brand new show ‘Himalaya Neem Face Wash presents MTV Girls On Top’ - a show about three not-so-adarsh -girls trying to survive – dealing with job issues, love issues and also domestic issues, will be going on air from 7th March 2016, from Monday to Friday at 6:30 PM only on MTV.
Girls On Top is a story of three determined young girls who live together and focuses on all aspects of being today’s modern day Indian woman. The show, a dramedy, will analyze various aspects of being an independent young woman in urban India through lenses of friendship, relationships, career, aspirations and even whims and fancies. Viewers will get to see three young women - TV Producer Isha (Played by Saloni Chopra), Tabloid Journalist Gia (played by Barkha Singh), and DJ Revati (played by Ayesha Adlakha) as they make their way through life in a ruthless city like Mumbai and how they grow stronger together as they face one difficult circumstance after another.
On being a part of MTV Girls On Top, Saloni Chopra said, “I play the role of Isha in the show. Isha is extremely resilient and head- strong and is the go- to person in the house. She's basically a balance of Revati and Gia, a bit of both the extremes. I can so relate to the character and I am very excited to be playing a role like this. We’ve been shooting for a bit and the three of us have come so close already that it doesn’t even feel like we’re acting anymore. I think that’s what makes this role even more special!”
Talking about being a part of MTV Girls On Top, Barkha Singh said, “The concept of MTV Girls On Top really intrigued me and without giving it a second thought I took up the opportunity of being a part of it. I play the role of an aspiring novelist who’s working as a page 3 journalist to pay the bills but in reality she is not at all glamour struck and half the time doesn’t understand how she’s supposed to deal with it all. While she loves having fun with her friends and she’s otherwise really nice, when it comes to love, she’s rather cynical…but you’ll see how she evolves as some things change her life drastically!”
Elaborating on the novel concept of the show, Ayesha Adlakha said, “I am really kicked about being a part of a show like Girls On Top which brings the best of both worlds. I play the role of Revati who wants to produce electronic music & DJ at International gigs but ends up playing at weddings because being taken seriously as a DJ when you’re a new girl in a big scene, is not easy. This role is doubly special to me because not only am I playing a character that I completely relate to – I mean, I’m a Delhi girl – living in Mumbai and making my dreams come true, but also because I started off as an executive at MTV and I’m now acting in an MTV show! If this isn’t proof of Mumbai being the city where anything is possible, I don’t know what is!
Giving viewers a unique insight into the ambitions and dreams of three headstrong girls living in Mumbai, Girls On Top will highlight the transformations the journey fosters in their personal and professional lives. With a never been seen before cast, MTV presents the audience with the most adrenaline- filled experiences of 3 independent girls. The show is conceptualized and produced by BBC Entertainment.
So make sure you tune in to hang out with the coolest trio in town – the Himalaya Neem Face Wash presents MTV Girls On Top from 7th March, every Monday to Friday at 6:30 Pm, only on MTV
