Konkona to host Nat Geo’s My Brilliant Brain


MUMBAI: This December, National Award winning actor, Konkona Sen Sharma will be seen in the National Geographic Channel’s My Brilliant Brain. She will be part of the special Indian film, which will be aired along with the international line-up.


My Brilliant Brain is a series that makes viewers re-think the abilities of the human brain as it looks at a group of remarkable people and poses questions about the origins of genius: are these extraordinary abilities genetic, developed or acquired by accident? 


Speaking on the initiative, National Geographic Channel, South Asia, Managing Director, Nikhil Mirchandani said, “Our mission properties have always showcased exceptional content, encouraging viewers to re-assess the world they live in and expand their thought horizons. My Brilliant Brain will take Indian television programming to the next level with content so impressive and well-packaged that it truly suits the evolved viewer we have today.
