I received an email from IndiBlogger for the Zee Zindagi meet.I decided I wont miss this event as I am always fascinated by Culture and people of Pakistan. This time I wanted to be a part of new initiative taken by Zee Entertainment Enterprises (ZEEL)to promote cultural exchange by launch of ZEE Zindagi channel . The Meet was organized at The Leela,Mumbai where Bloggers interacted with Pakistani stars.
It was arranged in two cities i.e Mumbai and Delhi where in interesting debate started with questions like which city is best for street food?( Mumbai& Delhi at equal) ,which city is better in terms of transport? ( ofcourse Mumbai is the best in connectivity, Mumbai gets brownie point here), etc etc. it was first time at Indi Blogger’s meet that inter-city bloggers interacted with each other. Everyone there were enthusiastic and at their feet cheering for their home city.
Back to the Zindagi, Handsome hunk and Pakistani actor,Imran Abbas, arrived and got warm welcome. Great applause from audience. Imran Abbas addressed the event followed by Q& A with Bloggers. He was calm and answered all the question with ease and Urdu dialects comes being a Pakistani. There was surprise in the box, Didn’t knew Imran Abbas is good singer as well. On request he sang two songs- “Mera desh hai jaisa “ and popular hit song from Ashiqui-2 movie- “ Tum hi ho” enthralled the audience and impressed everyone with his singing skills.He has collection of 15000 songs & is big fan of Kishor Kumar, Mohd.Rafi etc.Everyone cheered and roaring applause came and once more ,once more started. Whatta Rockstar he is.
What I feel about ZEE Zindagi Channel that is it has content that is never seen before .The reason is stories are realistic in nature (Seen the trailers “Zindagi Gulzar hai -Do Dilon ko Jodti hai kahaani sarhad paar se” ,” Telefilms ka naya daur sarhad paar se”, “Kash mein teri beti na hoti – ek beti ke dard ki pukar sarhad paar se”,and Viewers wil get to see new daily soaps with different story beyond the borders( apart from Indian soaps) and as mentioned by Imran Abbas , the serials are of 22-25 episodes mainly focusing on the story content and tight script which will keep audience engaged and build interest to watch the show unlike our tv serials which never ends and goes on till 1000 episodes! Secondly rare concept of #JodeyDilonko ie which will connect audiences beyond borders.Thirdly Promoting Cultural exchange between the two nations and promoting peace and harmony, keeping aside political differences.ZEE Zindagi to be aired on 23th June,2014.

Zindagi will connect hearts of people , and I strong believe both countries are interconnected with each other in a way somewhat in culture ,language customs, traditions, sports which are bonding them together despite of political and economical differences by the govt.
Alas I had good time with my friends through Zindagi #JodeyDilonKo . Meet was one of best experiences and met new bloggers (Jodey Bloggers ko)as well.
