Zee network is ready to revive their Zindagi platform online as Zee5. The channel has been quite popular for introducing Pakistani content in India with shows like Aunn Zara, Zindagi Gulzar Hai, Hamsafar and Dhoop Chhaon.
Zee5 has now roped in some of the most iconic Pakistani serials for their platform including Baaghi, Shehr-e-Zaat, Diyar-e-Dil, Bin Roye and Tum Kon Piya among others. The platform is also planning to launch 5 new original series featuring the Pakistani lot:

People were happy to see Zee5 doing what Bollywood couldn’t:
The selective outrage and propaganda against pak content and artists was hilarious. Glad digital could do what Bollywood could never 😊💜 https://t.co/Jzmv7doqrO
