Further, with a vision of celebrating Bengali films and taking them to Bengali speaking people across the country, Zeel launched West Bengal's first 24 hour movie channel, Zee Bangla Cinema (ZBC) in 2012. This year, the network has taken a new step by creating great films for television through its initiative - 'Zee Bangla Cinema Originals.’
