Zindagi, the premium Hindi

Entertainment Enterprises, has
announced the launch of five new
shows in January.

The channel, that has been airing finite

engage and entertain audiences with
fresh stories.

The channel premiered 'Piya Re' and
'Khwahishein' on January 7. Coming up

and 'Ijaazat' on January 20. Says

hearts and minds of our viewers. Each
story is unique and has a compelling
narrative and will surely make for some
awesome television viewing. We hope
to continue to entertain our audiences
and these five shows are a perfect
start to 2015."

An introduction to the shows
Piya Re is a love story that touches
upon love, marriage, and the fragility of
relationships, sacrifice and acceptance.
It's the story of a couple, Faisal and
Ujjala, who are madly in love from a
young age and finally get married after
much hesitation from the girl's father.

The story explores what marriage is
really about - sticking together through
tough times and through all
circumstances, good and bad. Piya Re
will see Aamina Sheikh (previously
seen in Maat, Ishq Gumshuda and Aina
Dulhan Ka) and Adeel Hussain (Mera
Naseeb) in the lead roles. It will air at
8 pm.

The channel has lined up Khwahishein
at the 8.30 pm slot. The show is story
of Ajia, who like most young girls,
dreams of a fairytale life for herself
where a Prince Charming will come
riding into her life and sweep her off
her feet. She hopes for a bright and
beautiful future for herself that would
take her away from her current middle
class existence that is fraught with
hardships. The cast of the show
includes Aiza Khan (Kahi Unkahi),
Mohib Mirza (Yeh Shaadi Nahi Ho
Sakti) playing the central
characters.Maya will occupy the 10.15
pm slot on the channel. It is a story of
sisterly love that has the capability to
strengthen as well as weaken a family.
Set in the scenic locales of Murree,
Maya is about two sisters Maya and
Zarmeena. The story follows the
narrative from Zarmeena's point of view
as she talks about her sister Maya and
their life together. Having lost their
mother at an early age, the two sisters
are extremely close and inseparable.

Maya is chirpy and outspoken, yet
sensitive and adorable, whereas
Zarmeena is mature and responsible.
However, a family secret related to
Maya comes to light, which threatens
to ruin the bond between the sisters.
The show introduces Neelam Muneer
and Ainy Jaffri as the two sisters and
has Danish Taimoor (Kaash Mein Teri
Beti Na Hoti) and Javed Sheikh
(Zindagi Gulzar Hai) playing pivotal

Making its debut on January 20 at 9 pm
is Mausam that has one of the most
sought-after Pakistani artistes, Sanam
Balouch, playing a double role. Mausam
is the story of love and sacrifice
spanning two generations. The first
generation of lovers are the star-
crossed cousins Roshan Ara and
Mansoor, while the second generation
consists of Momin and Sitara, whose
love is put to test and what remains to
be seen is the fate of their relationship.

The roles of both Roshan and Sitara are
being played by Balouch who has
featured in shows like Dhoop Chaaon
and Noorpur ki Rani on Zindagi.Ijaazat
is a compelling tale of love and
betrayal. It narrates the story of Sahil,
a film director and his writer wife,
Seep. Sahil and Seep are madly in love
with each other, such is their bond that
Seep writes a story about Diya, the
woman of her husband's dream, for his
upcoming project. Sahil gets obsessed
with finding the perfect girl to play Diya
and finally meets Pares, who fits the
bill. Completely entranced by his female
lead, Sahil's love for his wife is
questioned as Pares becomes the
centre of his world.

Humayun Saeed as Sahil (from Ishq
Gumshuda), Deepti Gupta (an actress
of Indian origin) as Seep, Adnan
Siddiqui (from Mere Qatil Mere Dildar,
Maat) as Behraam and Humaima Malik
as Pares lead the cast. It will air at the
9.30 pm slot.
