MUMBAI: Taking storytelling beyond boundaries, leading content conglomerate, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) has created yet another milestone with the launch of its new celebrity chat show ‘Starry Nights’, exclusively for international territories. Hosted by top trade analyst, Komal Nahta, the show promises to reveal his fun and witty side as he indulges in heart-warming and hilarious conversations with Bollywood celebrities.

Produced in-house, Starry Nights premieres on ZEE’s international channels starting the first week of January 2017.

ZEEL international broadcast business CEO Amit Goenka said, “With a presence in 171 countries and content available in 9 foreign languages, ZEE has emerged as a truly world-scale player, offering rich, innovative and engaging content to a wide cross-section of audiences. Bollywood’s popularity is growing across continents and with Starry Nights, it will be the first time that a celeb chat show of this stature has been produced. Featuring the best of Bollywood, the show aims to reach over 332 million viewers across all international territories.”

Speaking on his association, host and popular trade analyst Komal Nahta said, “I was thrilled at the offer to host Starry Nights as it was outside my comfort zone. All these years I have spoken of box-office collections but this show has given me an opportunity to be associated with the glamour instead of the grind.”

Sharing further details on the new property, ZEEL president - content & strategy, international business Rajeev Kheror said, “Starry Nights is about the journey of our favorite film celebrities. It is different from other chat shows where celebs talk about their films and latest releases. Here we come closer to the individual personality of the celebrity, their true character and their desires. The 40 episode series will feature the best of the industry, including global superstars like Aamir Khan, Karan Johar, Hrithik Roshan, Anushka Sharma, Kangana Ranaut, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor, Sushant Singh Rajput, Vidya Balan and Manish Malhotra among others. While the show has been shot in English, to reach local audiences across the globe, it will be dubbed or sub-titled in several languages including German, Spanish and Arabic.”

'Starry Nights' has been conceptualised and produced by Zee International programming head Fatema Contractor. Speaking on the concept, she said “We are honored to be creating a celeb chat show at a global level in association with Komal Nahta. Starry Nights manages to go beyond the reel and reveal the real side of celebrities.”

The starry line-up of guests includes Arjun Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Farah Khan, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Zoya Akhtar, Imtiaz Ali, Tiger Shroff and many more. So get ready to witness the perfect blend of comedy, drama, romance and admiration with your favorite Bollywood stars on the couch.
