ZEE5 forays into Punjabi content with all-new lineup

The 'Rajj Ke Vekho' initiative aims to bridge the gap between TV watching audiences and OTT users.


Mumbai: ZEE5 has launched an all-new Punjabi content slate under the ‘Rajj Ke Vekho’ initiative, in order to strengthen its footprint in Punjab and neighbouring areas in Northern India. The video streaming platform's new content slate will address the demand of over three crore Punjabi native speakers in India, it said.

The new offering consists of Punjabi films, web series, originals and shows including straight-from-the-theatre titles from Zee Studios including "Puaada", "Qismat 2", "Jinne Jamme Saare Nikamme", and "Fufad Ji", starring popular Pollywood actors Ammy Virk, Sonam Bajwa, Sargun Mehta, Binnu Dhillon, and Gurnam Bhullar.

ZEE5 India, chief business officer, Manish Kalra said the 'Rajj Ke Vekho' initiative is an attempt to bridge the gap between the TV watching audience and OTT users, bringing everybody onto a common platform. “Punjab, today, boasts of over 70 per cent internet penetration, a telecom infrastructure density that ranks third in the country, with one of the highest GDPs and per capita incomes in India. Despite this, the content offerings in the local Punjabi language are not as diverse as a crucial market like Punjab deserves. While intent among the audience is high, the availability of options is low, which is precisely what ZEE5 is here to address with the initiative," he added.
