MUMBAI: The Punjabi entertainment industry has been in great demand and hence has been producing content that is widely consumed not only amongst the Punjabi community, but also amongst the large Hindi speaking masses.

We are looking at more such Interactive Services and this strengthening our relationship with our ardent viewers who seek us out, platform irrespective.”
