Since its global foray, ZEE5 has carved a clear niche for itself in the hearts of South Asians across the globe with its range of Indian TV Shows, Blockbuster Movies, Originals etc. across languages, enabling viewers across the globe to access their favourite TV shows like ‘Kumkum Bhagya’, ‘Kundali’, ‘Bhagya’, ‘Jodhaa Akbar’, and ‘Sembaruthi’.

Today, we not only have access to global content, but also have the opportunity to reach our rich Indian content to a viewer in any country who is hungry for our movies and music and TV shows. We have a very exciting year coming up and I am looking forward to sharing some key updates on 25th April during the upcoming APOS Summit.”
