Zindagi channel might ban all Pakistani TV shows

Mumbai, Sep 24 (IANS) Zindagi channel – the first to syndicate content from Pakistan and air it in India – might ban all the Pakistani TV shows currently been aired in India following the 48-hour ultimatum given by Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) to all Pakistani film and TV artistes to quit India or face consequences.

Referring to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Subhash Chandra, Chairman at ZEE and Essel Group, tweeted on Saturday: “Unfortunate stance of Mia Sharif at UN. Zee is considering stopping Zindagi programmes from Pakistan. Artistes from there should leave.”

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”.
