Reliance Broadcast Network's 92.7 BIG FM has announced the launch of a comedy show titled 'BIG Garmi Ki Chhutti' which will feature popular comedians Krushna, Sugandha and Saloni. Krushna and Sugandha Mishra will be heard every day between 6 PM and 7 PM, across the Hindi speaking markets.

The network will also make use of its reach across the country to promote a special social message, 'Pani Bachao Life Banao', where it will encourage participation from children to drive the crusade. Saloni will lead this campaign, encouraging children across the country to goad their elders to conserve water. Saloni and the children will use humour to create awareness about water wastage and ways to stop it, while volunteering to fix leaking taps and pipes as they move around the city with a plumber and a mission to save water.
