India’s first satellite TV channel Zee TV will complete 20 glorious years of entertaining India this October! Viewers will be in for a treat as the channel has lined up an extra-special entertainment program just to commemorate the occasion! The 3-hour birthday bonanza to air at 8 PM on 2nd October on Zee TV will raise a toast to the illustrious journey of the channel right from its inception to the present day. The evening will see some of the most memorable faces of Zee TV take to the stage.
In an act reminiscent of the famous ‘Deewangi Deewangi’ track from ‘Om Shanti Om’ where all the stars arrive waving out to the crowd, popular artistes from Zee TV’s past shows like Divyanka Tripathi, Navneet Nishan, Sudesh Berry, Sara Khan, Suhasi Dhami and Gracy Singh will be seen making snazzy red carpet entries. ‘Punarvivaah’ actor Gurmeet Chaudhary will play the hospitable host as he welcomes them to what will be showcased as his character Yash’s grand birthday party. Ratan Rajput, most fondly remembered as Laali from ‘Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo’ will be the pari who dances and entertains all the little child artistes of Zee TV’s primetime shows as she springs out of Yash’s birthday cake as a surprise!
The romantics in the audience need not be disappointed … Zee TV’s most adored couples will dance up a storm, what with Dev-Radhika (Avinash Sachdev & Rubina Dilaik) of ‘Chhoti Bahu’, Shankar-Gayatri (Iqbal Khan & Shilpa Shinde) of ‘Waaris’ and Nahar-Saloni (Rajashree Thakur & Sharad Kelkar) of ‘Saat Phere’ pitted against the younger lovebirds Purvi-Arjun (Asha Negi-Rithvik Dhanjani) of ‘Pavitra Rishta’, Mayank-Gunjan (Roopal Tyagi & Ankit Gera) of ‘Sapne Suhaane Ladakpan Ke’ and Ranveer-Jazz (Ashish Sharma & Sukirti Kandpal) of ‘Rab Se Sohna Isshq’ in a dance challenge.
Dance India Dance mentors Geeta Kapur and Terrence Lewis are also to be a part of the dance-a-thon that also features popular DID contestants Siddhesh, Mayuresh, Vrushali and Vandana. The channel’s eternal lovebirds Manav-Archana (Hiten Tejwani and Ankita Lokhande) are also a part of an act that salutes our viewers and thanks them for their love and support through the years.
Virad Kaul, Territory Head, Zee Europe said “A milestone of twenty years is a defining moment in any organization’s life span. It is a reason to celebrate, when the dream that the channel envisioned two decades ago has blossomed. It’s a moment of accomplishment for the entire team of Zee TV as the 20th year has seen the channel only moving from success to success. We’d like to take the occasion of the channel’s 20th birthday to thank our loyal viewers for their consistent support as without them, the channel would not have scaled the heights it has”.
