Zee Tamil to launch a bouquet of shows starting this September

The channel also has new offerings for its fiction and non-fiction segment

MUMBAI: Zee Tamil, has lined up an exciting array of new shows that are set to be launched this month. These include shows from both fiction and non-fiction genre. As the channel is able to create fresh content post easing down of restrictions on shooting and productions, Zee Tamil has emerged stronger and received an overwhelming response from its viewers, strengthening its resolve to serve the best in-class entertainment in Tamil Nadu.

Zee Tamil’s string of new shows will be launched beginning in September. The Gautam Vasudev Menon directorial web series Queen will be aired on Television for the first time on Zee Tamil every Sunday starting 13 September. The channel also has new offerings for their fiction and non-fiction segment - Suryavamsam and Zee Super Family, respectively. After the phenomenal audience reception for shows Dr. Ambedkar and Kundali Bhagya in other Zee network channels, Zee Tamil has decided to bring these two shows to the eager Tamil audiences as well.

Queen, inspired from true-life events, highlights the journey of an ambitious and fierce woman, through her journey from being a bright student to becoming an acting sensation in Tamil Cinema, to finally becoming a great political leader in Tamil Nadu. Directed by Gautam Menon, this web series stars Ramya Krishnan, Anjana Jayaprakash, and Anikha as Shakthi Seshadri. Starting 13 September, Queen will air every Sunday from 6:30 pm to 7.30 pm

Suryavamsam is a contemporary family drama, which has a refreshing take on the conflict between a tradition and love between different cultures. It brings back nostalgia for the days when joint families were still predominant in society. It is the story of Samantha (played by Niktha Rajesh) who is on a mission to reunite her mother Kalyani (played by Sandhana) with her estranged family. The other lead actors in this show are Poornima Bhagyaraj, playing the grandmother Annammal, and Aashish Chakravarthy, playing Surya, the love interest of Samantha. Starting  21 September Suryavamsam will air from Monday – Saturday, at 7:00 pm.

Coming soon to the Zee Tamil audience is Puratchiyalar Dr.Ambedkar,  a serial based on the real-life story of Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar. Due to the prevalence of regressive practices of untouchability and the caste system, Ambedkar and his family are treated poorly by the people belonging to the upper castes. Bhim, however, studies diligently and works hard to educate himself, ultimately becoming the bastion, flag bearer, and almost synonymous with ‘social justice’ in India. The promo of this show running currently on TV and social media has already created waves and a very high interest amongst Tamil viewers

Among its non-fiction offerings, Zee Tamil will soon be launching a show called Zee Super Family– a reality game show hosted by Archana and RJ Vijay wherein artists of Zee Tamil shows will come together for this one of a kind game show to offer 120 minutes of non-stop entertainment through a series of fun filled tasks.

Kundali Bhagya, a famous show which topped the viewer ratings for Zee TV is soon to be dubbed and launched for Zee Tamil. This fiction show tells the story of two sisters Preeta (Shraddha Arya) and Srishti (Anjum Fakih) in their attempt to reunite with their mother Sarla (Supriya Shukla). It shows their journey and how they ultimately find themselves entangled with the rich and famous Luthra family. This is a story of love, of friendship, of revenge – the ultimate emotional potpourri!
