Saravanan, Business Head, BIG Productions said: “MOTI BAA is the first daily fiction of BIG Productions and we are emotionally attached to it. In a market where resources are scarce, talent is limited and budgets are low we have been successfully running this show for more than two years now. It offers the best of both worlds – compelling and believable content of Gujarat as well as sophisticated content of Mumbai standards. We have managed to sustain more than 90 per cent of cast and crew in these two years, again an achievement in this market. We have been building infrastructure, facilities and nurturing talent in this market ever since we started productions here. It has the potential of becoming a strong production base for Hindi GEC shows. MOTI BAA has now completed more than 500 episodes of run, a feat no other show or a production house has managed in so many years in Gujarat. ”
