Pancham, the show that premieres on 30 August (Monday),
is a tale of a young boy by the same name, who aims to set the world
right, but he does not believe in preaching the right path to society.
The show will air every Monday - Thursday at 1 pm.
by Gulshan Sachdeva's Film & Shots production house, the daily
is directed by Sachin Dev. According to the story line, Pancham
amalgamates the virtues of yesteryears with today's way of living.
The protagonist creates self-explanatory situations for the people
to follow his verdict, without uttering a word. He is gifted with
an art of solving problems in a unique way.
The protagonists role will be essayed by new comer Navnit Das,
while Rohini Hattangady and Gufi Paintal play pivotal roles.
Says Zee TV head of programming Ashwini Yardi, "Pancham
is a unique value driven show which offers a thoughtful message
accompanied by complete entertainment to our audiences. With Pancham
we will further strengthen our afternoon time slot. It is a
story of a young selfless boy, of today's generation, who is a born
with talent to control our five senses, which are the beginning
and end of all that exists in this universe. The preaching of Pancham
will leave an eye opening impact on our viewers to learn more and
realize more of these powers which are beyond imagination."
With Pancham, the Zee Woman slot now also offers
some food for soul as it deals with five elements, five senses,
Although channel officials are tightlipped about Zee's primetime
fare, according to industry sources, the channel will be debuting
three new shows - one from Nimbus Communications titled Kareena
Kareena and another one from K Sera Sera Productions on new
age relations called Kashish. But the one that is sure to
raise a few eyebrows is a desi version of Sex And the City
- Kabhie Haan Kabhi Naa produced by Rose Movies.
The show is reportedly replacing the waning Kittie Party in
the 10:30 pm slot. An urban show based on daily interactions between
men and the women, something the Zee English viewer has been used
to so far. It will star Vishal Singh, Kushal Punjabi, Dimple, Nigar
Khan, and Gautami Gadgil.
While K Sera Sera is going into production in a few days time,
Nimbus has already started shooting.
All in all quite an interesting line up that Zee has in the kitty
for its loyal viewers.
