Yes you have heard it right; After Sony TV, Zee TV is all set
to launch a new channel which will have new fictional serials. The parent channel
is going to give a tough competition to Sony TV who is also set to launch its new
channel by next month.
Our source says, "Zee wanted to launch its new channel since
long but now that Sony has already set the time of its new venture, Zee is
going to wait patiently and launch its channel by August or November. Nothing
has been decided on the launch date."
Zee is already coming up with Zindagi, how different will be
this new channel from the latter? "Zindagi has the stories featuring from Pakistan
where as the new channel will have stories by Indian producers. The difference
is going to be that there won't be daily soaps in it. It will consist of
different series with limited episodes like Games of Throne. At least that's what
I've heard," adds the source.
"Zee has started taking auditions for the shows which will
feature on their new channel. Though they are trying very hard to keep things
under wrap as till the official announcement, Zee doesn't want to disclose
about their big launch," concludes the source.
Well it's going to be interesting to see the competition
between two main GEC channels. Now only time will decide of who wins the race?
We wish them luck.
