Neeraj Vyas, Business Head, Sony SAB said

“At Sony SAB, we create shows that not only entertain our viewers but also bring them joy. If there’s anything that 2020 has taught us, it would be to stay hopeful, happy and healthy. Therefore, as we enter the new year, we all need something to relieve the stress and help us take a refreshed view of our health and well-being. We are glad to partner with Dr. Anjali Chhabria, who also accredits a happy and positive outlook as the secret to good health, mind and body. Through our content we continue to provide audiences the opportunity to bond and regale with their families, to laugh and to simply spread the happiness.”

Dr. Anjali Chhabria, M.D Psychiatrist, said,

“At a time when we’re surrounded by overwhelming negativity and incredible stress being happy can help to a great extent. Happiness is the antidote to stress and sometimes we need an external stimulus to feel happy. Sharing a good laugh while immersing oneself in a funny story, spending time with loved ones– can all help us feel happy. And it has been proven by various studies time and again, happy people are healthy people. Happiness and health go hand in hand. And that is what we need as we step into the New Year. A future filled with happiness and health to help us overcome the difficult year we’ve all had!”
