Zindagi Channel- which became popular after it aired Pakistani shows may put a ban on it. The channel became the first one to syndicate content from Pakistan and air it in India. But, now chairman of Zee and Essel Group has said that they may be reconsidering the decision.
Expressing discontent over Pakistan Prime Minsiter Nawaz Sharif’s speech at the UN General Assembly, Subhash tweeted about this reconsideration decision.
Here is what he tweeted:
unfortunate stance of Mia Sharif at UN. Zee is considering stopping Zindgi programs from Pak,as well artists from there should leave— Subhash Chandra (@subhashchandra) September 24, 2016
Yesterday, Raj Thackrey led MNS had given an ultimatum to Pakistani artistes should leave the nation in 48 hours. If they fail to do so, the party said that they will tackle the situation in their ‘own ways’.
On Friday, MNS gave the ultimatum and told the media that there was "an anti-Pakistan" wave across India after the September 18 terror attack that left 18 Indian soldiers dead at Uri in Jammu and Kashmir.
The party also warned it would not permit the release of any Bollywood films having Pakistani actors, including the upcoming "Aye Dil Hai Muskhil" and "Raees".
Launched in 2014, Zindagi channel became popular with the Indian masses after showcasing various Pakistani shows like "Zindagi Gulzar Hai", "Waqt Ne Kiya Kya Haseen Sitam", "Sasural Ki Galli", "Noor Bano", "Main Bushra" and "Jab We Wed".
