Taking the entertainment quotient, a notch higher, ZEE Biskope will launch a full 30-minute original Kamariya Kare Hip Hop show. Anchored by a popular Bhojiwood celebrity, the show will telecast on ZEE Biskope on 4th October 2020.

Featuring the rap song, the show will be ornamented by bytes from Bhojiwood celebs who will elaborate their take on dance and the channel’s endevour to promote dance.

Talking about the initiative, Samrat Ghosh, cluster head East, ZEE Entertainment Enterprises Ltd said, “In these restricted times when people are homebound for about 6 months now, entertainment plays a significant role in upscaling their emotional cushion. Despite the constrained reality, people look for opportunities to stage their aspirations through the lens of entertainment. The engagement drives of ZEE Biskope are designed exactly to meet that latent need of our viewers. Kamariya Kare Hip Hop is yet another unique way for viewers to showcase their talent to the world through the channel’s TV & social platforms. The multi-media initiative also gives advertisers an opportunity to reach out to incremental audience.”

Speaking on the launch, Amarpreet Singh Saini, business head, ZEE Biskope and BIG Ganga said, “The Bhojpuri entertainment market is becoming increasingly cluttered. It’s hence important to keep a strong point of differentiation that uniquely identifies the brand. The channel is catering to that differentiator through novel viewer engagement drives like Kamariya Kare Hip Hop. The endeavour is to establish ZEE Biskope as not just a movie channel, but a Movie+ brand that brings category firsts at every occasion. This is a stand which no other channel in the category has been able to take till date.”

Dance is a performing art that brings people together in the celebration of life. Taking this very thought forward, the channel rejoices Dance Day through in the Hip Hop way.
