Salman Khan worked as a barber, Mika as a tea seller, Varun Dhawan as a vegetable vendor, Ram Kapoor as a taxi driver, Ranbir Kapoor as a Vada Pav seller and last but not the least Karan Johar as a photographer team up for a show titled Mission Sapne.
Come April 27 2014, Mission Sapne, the much awaited television show will transform stars into work like a common man for a day.
Hosted by Sonali Bendre, Mission Sapne is a pioneering programming initiative from Colors, which brings together celebrities from various walks of life and encourages them to leverage their fame for the benefit of the common man. As a part of the show, audiences will get an opportunity to see their favourite celebrities step into the shoes of the common man for a day and earn their daily wage.
Season one of the show will see Top celebrities from across Bollywood, Television, Sports and Music and will be volunteering in this Mission including actors Salman Khan (Barber), Varun Dhawan (Pattiwala), Harbhajan Singh (Namkeen Seller), Mika Singh (Chaiwala), Ronit Roy (Cosmetic Seller), Ranbir Kapoor (Vada-Pav Seller), Ram Kapoor (Taxi Driver), Karan Johar (Photographer), Drashti Dhami (Nimbu-Mirchi Seller) and Siddharth Malhotra (Vegetable Vendor).
True to the person he is helping, the celebrity will move away from their comfort zone to drive a taxi, sell vegetables or become a door-to-door salesman and use their talent, wit and star persona to bring a change in their ordinary and tough life. They will also witness the various difficulties faced by those who bring comfort to our lives.
