Pablo Escobar, The Drug Lord now streaming on ZEE5 in hindi


MUMBAI: ZEE5, India’s largest digital entertainment platform for language content, has announced the release of the popular Columbian drama, Pablo Escobar, The Drug Lord. In keeping with its promise of bringing international content in Indian languages, ZEE5 has dubbed the Spanish-language series in Hindi.

Based on the life of Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar, the series stars Columbian TV and film actor Andrés Parra Medina. The 74-episode series follows the rise of Escobar, from his days as a petty thief to becoming the head of a drug trafficking empire, turning the cocaine trade into a multi-million dollar business and ruthlessly eliminating whoever dared to stand in his way. He was often called "The King of Cocaine" and was the wealthiest criminal in history. The show also brings to light Escobar's softer side – as a husband and father and a supporter of the poor.

“Pablo Escobar has been one of the most popular TV shows internationally and attracted record audiences in Colombia when it was aired. We are thrilled to offer it in Hindi on ZEE5, in keeping with our promise to bring the best of content to viewers in the language of their comfort. Real life stories have a distinct appeal and there are few stories that are as sensational as that of Pablo Escobar’s. This is only one of the many premium international shows we will be brining to delight our viewers in India,” said Archana Anand, EVP & Head of Digital- ZEE5 India Business.
