ZEE5 Global set to release six star-studded Bangladeshi dramas

ZEE5 Global, the largest OTT platform for South Asian content, has recently announced the addition of six star-studded dramas to its already vast content repository. In addition to strengthening ZEE5’s local content repository, this acquisition will also give a global platform to local production houses and talent in Bangladesh, said a press release. 

All six new dramas will be stream for free from February 26 under ZEE5 Global’s brand new segment, ‘ZEE Drama Time’.

Produced on various genres of romance, drama, comedy, satire and thriller, the dramas have featured popular Bangladeshi actors Tousif Mehbub, Tasnia Farin, Ziaul Apurba, Shiba Ali Khan, Irfan Sazzad, Sarika Saba Ohona Rahman, Musharaf Karim and Tarin, among others. 

Given that the dramas are being launched in February, the month of spring in Bangladesh, also the season of love, ZEE5 has curated this new content line-up within two themes of love, based on local idioms: “Piriti kathaler atha”, meaning love is as strong an adhesive like that of a jackfruit. Based on the popular folk song, under this theme, the platform will feature three dramas, Rahman Aryan’s
‘Tomar Tane’, Mehedi Hassan’s ‘2521’ and Mohon Ahmed’s ‘Biye Shadi’

Based on the popular song, the second theme “Hrid majhare rakhbo” translates to “will keep you in my heart!” A collection of intense love stories, this theme will feature the romantic titles Sakhawat Manik’s ‘Chena Mukh Ochena Thikana, Mehedi Hassan’s ‘High Volume’ and Sohel Hasan’s ‘No Prem No Biye’.

Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global, said, “Our first Bangladeshi Originals ‘Mainkar Chipay’ and ‘WTFry’ witnessed a massive response in Bangladesh. We’re now very happy to add these six dramas with prominent actors and directors also to our library and offer them for free so everyone across Bangladesh can enjoy these locally-produced dramas. We also look forward to these dramas finding a global audience through being streamed on our platform across international markets.”
