History has witnessed the great and gallant contributions of the Bhojpuri region since India’s freedom struggle. Bihar & Jharkhand take pride serving in the army, the police or IAS. Their undying passion in contributing to the society & the nation is admirable. It’s the valor of these bravehearts that keeps our head held high with pride. This Independence Day, ZEE Biskope rejoices the fervor of these heroes who protect our freedom by guarding the borders. The channel launched Rang De Basanti – Jai Jawan Jai Hindustan, an I-Day special bouquet of offerings that goes beyond being just a campaign. With the objective of saluting the courageous men in uniform, the initiative encapsulates a patriotic saga dedicated to the Indian Army especially the Bhojpuriya Jawans.

Launched on 7 Aug, the category first initiative – Chitthi Aayi Hai invites viewers to write a message for our soldiers in the most authentic form of communication – letters. When posted at the borders, the only form of communication that the Jawans eagerly wait for are letters that carry the warmth of their loved ones. Viewers can share their hearts out through a letter, a handmade card, a sketch, Rakhis or any other gifts to express their gratitude for those serving in the Indian Army. These should be posted to ZEE Biskope by 20 August along with the sender’s name, address and phone number on the given address: ZEE Biskope, ZEE Entertainment Enterprises Ltd, 18thFloor, A-Wing, Marathon Futurex, Lower Parel, Mumbai- 400013.

Written and arranged by popular names in the industry – Navin Ojha & Govind Ojha respectively, the special rendition of the song reflects the bold and enthusiastic spirit with which the brave soldiers fight for our motherland.

Staying true to its core of serving authentic Bhojpuri entertainment, ZEE Biskope planned a strong line up of patriotic movies throughout the week and especially on 15 August as part of the Rang De Basanti initiative.
