Teachers play multiple roles in our lives than just an educator — they are social workers, our friends, mentors, and surrogate parents. As a salute to all that they do in shaping lives, Sony YAY! brings season two of their flagship Teacher’s Day initiative, ‘Heroes Behind the Heroes’!
Building on the success of season one, this season of the acclaimed initiative will continue to celebrate distinguished names and champions who believed in their role models, putting in all their energies to train and coach them.
The channel acknowledged Sania Mirza, Indian tennis player, choreographer Terence Lewis, Indian film director, producer and screenwriter Subhash Ghai, Nobel Peace Prize recipient and a member of a UNESCO body established with the goal of providing ‘Education for All’ Kailash Satyarthi, Indian Sarod player Ustad Amjad Ali Khan Bangash.
SPN kids genre business head Leena Lele Dutta said,“The first season of ‘Heroes Behind the Heroes’ succeeded in imbibing pride and joy amongst teachers, and inspired children across. Being true to our philosophy, Sony YAY! will continue to drive inspiration for kids through the admirable contributions and stories of these eminent personalities across various fields. Sony YAY! takes this opportunity to salute the contributions of the heroes behind the heroes!”
Season two grows from the success and positive response that Heroes Behind the Heroes Season one saw. Heroes Behind the Heroes 2017 saw our YAYtoons visiting renowned names like Anupam Kher, Shaheen Mistri and Shiamak Davar and cheering them for all their efforts. Apart from the above, Pandit Birju Maharaj and Mahavir Singh Phogat were felicitated too.
Behind many successful adults is a teacher that helped contribute and shape those students’ foundations for the future and thanking each one of them, everywhere is what ‘Heroes Behind the Heroes’ stands for!
