The Hindi series 'Thapki' highlights the challenges of a young girl, who struggles with a stammer brought on by nervousness.
Dubai-based content distribution and production company SynProNize, led by founders Nitin Michael and Hasnaa Descuns, has acquired the Indian drama series titled Thapki from IndiaCast for distribution in Kenya.
The programme premiered on Colors TV channel of IndiaCast and will be dubbed into various vernacular dialects spoken in Kenya.
Thapki is about overcoming adversity to find love. The show tells the story of a girl, Thapki, who is mocked by society because she stammers. Despite her hardships, she finds love and develops confidence from media mogul Dhruv. The series follows the journey of the two as they struggle to be together, overcoming familial obstacles.
Commenting on the licensing deal, Hasnaa Descuns said: “SynProNize is thrilled to bring our partner, IndiaCast’s drama series, Thapki into Kenya for the first time. In recent years, IndiaCast has been known to produce shows with a strong social message in addition to being widely popular with audiences. Thapki is exactly the kind of series that SynProNize wants to share with our valued partners in Africa, serving the dual purpose of entertaining audiences and hopefully bringing about a positive impact in society as well. There is an increasing demand for dubbing of foreign content to be consumed in African vernacular dialects and we’ve taken this step to deliver on that need.”
