The closer we get to the viewers, the better we understand them and hence the better we cater to their content preferences. Given the scale and response that the campaign enjoyed, it clearly shows the worth that ZEE Biskope recons in the Bhojpuri category.”

According to the channel, the aim was to facilitate the aspirations of its talented young viewers and thereby bring the brand closer to them.

Bhojpuri Cluster, senior vice president, Amarpreet Singh Saini said, “While the overwhelming response from viewers across the corners of the region was motivating, the emotion and effort behind the talent videos defined the success of the campaign. Many videos were shot in kuchha houses, on the fields, in a crowded room, on the terrace and so on. Limitation in resources was never a roadblock for the audience who had the sole intent of showcasing their talent to the world at large. This proves the readiness of the viewers to embrace and appreciate such opportunities. We promise to bring more such initiatives for our viewers in the months ahead.”
