What actor says?
He says, “With Sanjivani coming back after 17 years, it’s a homecoming feeling for me.”
What the show will focus on is something every viewer is looking forward to. Mohnish explains, that for Sanjivani, the priority has always been the needs of patients, and then everything else. He says, “The show has always promoted the care of patients over everything else and will continue to do so in this season.”
He further adds, “I’d be untruthful if I say that, when it comes to health care and hospitals, nothing has changed. On the contrary, over the years, the medical fraternity has transformed. We have a bigger and better chain of hospitals which come with top-notch equipment. Then we also higher prices which somewhere could supersede patient’s ‘healthcare first’and causes financial stress.”
“Hence, our core messaging will be the same. Sanjivani always had a motto and shall continue to function the same even today. The motto is focusing on patients needs first and then the rest of it,” concludes the actor.
From 2002 to 2019, things have changed in the hospitals and health care industry with private companies venturing in. But the show, as stated by the makers, will continue to put the patients’ needs and perspectives first.
