Zee5 has announced a weekly episodic premiere of 'Dhoop Ki Deewar' from June 25 every Friday at 12 noon. ‘Dhoop Ki Deewar’ revolves around the void that war leaves behind for the martyrs' families on both sides of the border and has been making noise for all the right reasons since the launch of its first teaser.
On the special occasion of the 75th Independence Day for both India and Pakistan, Zee5 will air the finale episodes on Independence Day weekend — a historic milestone for people on both sides of the border and South-Asian diaspora globally. A special gesture of peace, solidarity and 'heart over hate' on a very special day for both countries.
Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, Zee5 India, said, “An opportunity to tell such a powerful yet touching story does not come by easily. Through ‘Dhoop Ki Deewar’, we want to touch as many lives as we can and start a conversation about ‘heart over hate’. At Zee5, we believe in innovating constantly and look forward to seeing greater success with weekly episodic releases of the show and a renewed launch time of 12 noon.”
Shailja Kejriwal, Chief Creative Officer, Special Projects, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd, said, "This show is a sincere effort to demonstrate the collateral damage caused by war and a call to viewers from both sides of the border and across the world to introspect the need for peace. We hope the viewers will connect to the show and would love to hear their response as we release fresh episodes week on week.”
Produced by Motion Content Group and Hamdan Films, written by Umera Ahmed, and directed by Haseeb Hasan, Zindagi's upcoming original ‘Dhoop Ki Deewar’ is a tale of family and loss with real-life couple Sajal Aly and Ahad Raza Mir in the lead.
Dhoop Ki Deewar premieres on June 25 (two episodes) at 12 noon on Zee5.
