Mumbai: Actor Jim Sarbh is set to foray into the television space with a four-part series "Planet Healers", which features start-ups who are seeking innovative solutions to environmental hazards.
Seen in films like "Neerja", "Padmaavat" and "Sanju", Jim is excited about this new opportunity on Discovery Channel. As part of his host duties, he will give the audience a deep dive into how eight start-ups are focusing on complex but important issues like unplanned urbanisation, electronic waste management, air pollution, fuel recycling et al.
He will also be seen playing an integral role in educating viewers about the current environmental concerns and will give a reality check on how these hazards are impacting our planet.
Jim said in a statement to IANS: "I don't believe in the separation between mankind and nature. Mankind is nature. It is only natural, that nature would find a way to heal itself through mankind. I am excited by this 'Planet Healers' and the start-ups on it. Hope more people stretch their imaginations in the direction of conservation and preservation of our large, wonderful, home."
The show will be aired starting on March 8.
