ZEE5 to launch fourth original film ‘Veergati’ on R-Day
MUMBAI: Video on demand (VoD) platform ZEE5 has announced the launch of its fourth original film ‘Veergati’, inspired by real events, releasing on Republic Day.
Produced by Roshan Kanal’s Daytee Pictures, ‘Veergati’ presents the poignant tale of a martyr’s tragic fate forcing viewers to question the core fundamentals of patriotism and one’s duty towards the country.
Featuring Nikhil Chavan, Yatin Karyekar, Gaurav Ghatnekar, Aditi Bhaskar, Rinku Karmarkar and Radhika Harshe, and directed by Raju Desai & Vishal Desai, the film is slated to release on 26th January.
ZEE5 India business head Manish Aggarwal said, “Our experience over the past year has taught us that movies that challenge our notions and our knowledge are a huge hit among the OTT audience set. They love to be challenged on the perceptions they have been formed. Veergati is one such which forces us to rethink our beliefs and out own sense of right and wrong. This varied array of content has helped build on our subscriber base across geographies and demographics.”
ZEE5 India programming head Aparna Acharekar stated, “It is an honour for us to showcase the stories of forgotten heroes who have laid down their lives for our country. ZEE5 takes this opportunity to remember many such heroes and showcase it to our youth in the most engaging manner, this Republic Day.”
