Zindagi to beef up Sunday programming with six telefilms

MUMBAI: Zee Entertainment Enterprises’ Hindi entertainment channel Zindagi will be kickstarting the festive season with Teletime, wherein the channel will be showcasing various telefilms. From 18 October to 22 November, the channel will air six telefilms every Sunday at 12 pm with a repeat at 9 pm.


The first telefilm titled Saaya will be aired on 18 October and will captures the drama & essence that almost every family goes through. Starring Ayeza Khan, Shahzad Sheikh and Qavi Khan, it is a family drama of a wife trying to separate her husband from his father.


On 25 October, Zindagi will air the second telefilm, which will also mark the return of veteran actress Samina Peerzada on the small screen. Titled Zindagi Ab Bhi Muskurati Hai, it will also have Adnan Siddiqui portraying the character of her son. The telefilm highlights how Tipu - a man who hates his nation because of his past, develops a fondness for it due to some incidents.


On 1 November, the channel will air Behadd starring Fawad Khan, which is a heart wrenching yet progressive story of a mother (Nadia Jamil) who is willing to let go of the love of her life for her daughter.


Next in line on 8 November is Khamosh Mohabbat starring Sara Batool and Humayun Ashraf in lead roles. The story highlights how we never value those who value us, until we lose them.


The last two Sundays of Teletime will air two very different stories. Yeh Chand Na Sharma Jaye, which will be aired on 15 November, is a story about a man fearing his brother-in-law at home and his boss in the office and the hilarious turns this fear takes. The show will see Sanam Saeed playing a double role with a twist.


The Teletime festival will culminate with Ishq Wala Love on 22 November, which is a story of a rich guy who falls in love with a poor girl due to deception. It stars Mehwish Hayat and Asfar Rehman.
