Zindagi, the online entertainment channel owned by ZEE, today launched its third original web series Dhoop Ki Deewar and announced an episode schedule that promises to excite viewers and keep them coming back for more with two episodes being dropped every Friday starting 25 June at 12 noon IST.
On the special occasion of the 75th Independence Day for both India and Pakistan, ZEE5 will air the finale episodes weekend - a historic milestone for people on both sides of the border and South-Asian diaspora globally. A special gesture of peace, solidarity, and 'heart over hate' on a very special day for both countries.
Dhoop Ki Deewar revolves around the void that war leaves behind for the martyrs' families on both sides of the India-Pakistan border and stars real-life couple Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir in a tale of family and loss.
The series is the latest in a line of initiatives by the entertainment giant to foster unity and collaboration between India and Pakistan, two countries that have been bitter enemies since Partition in 1947.
Archana Anand, the Chief Business Officer of ZEE5 Global, said: “We’re always looking for stories with powerful narratives that will resonate with our audiences in global markets. Dhoop Ki Deewar is a powerful Zindagi Original that will touch a chord with not just South Asian but global audiences everywhere with its deep and meaningful storytelling and powerful messaging. We hope that Dhoop Ki Deewar will find much love from audiences out there who have so eagerly been awaiting its release.”
"This show is a sincere effort to demonstrate the collateral damage caused by war and a call to viewers from both sides of the border and across the world to introspect the need for peace." Shailja Kejriwal
Shailja Kejriwal, Chief Creative Officer, Special Projects at Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. added: “We hope the viewers will connect to the show and would love to hear their response as we release fresh episodes week on week.”
The series is produced by Motion Content Group and Hamdan Films, written by Umera Ahmed, and directed by Haseeb Hasan.
