New Delhi: Zee TV will now air its fiction shows all through the week so that the audiences’ can meet their beloved characters every day. To strengthen its pre-primetime slot, Zee TV is all set to introduce two fresh shows – ‘Lag Ja Gale’ and ‘Maitree’. Lag Ja Gale will showcase the story of an unlikely couple ̵1; Shiv and Ishani – who are brought together by unusual circumstances stemming from their family dynamics. On the other hand – Maitree is a high-octane drama about two soul sisters – Maitree and Nandini whose childhood friendship has turned sour with a quirk of fate.
Set in Delhi, ‘Lag Ja Gale’ follows the journey of an affluent, self-made young Punjabi hotelier – Shiv Dhooper (played by actor Namik Paul) – and a hard-working Maharashtrian girl, Ishani Kulkarni (played by Tanisha Mehta), who juggles multiple odd jobs as the sole breadwinner for her middle-class family. Both may seem very different on the face of it. But what they have in common is their unconditional love for their own family and the lengths they would go to for the sake of their happiness. So, despite starting off on the wrong foot, destiny finds Shiv and Ishani coming together in matrimony for the sake of their respective siblings.
‘Maitree’, on the other hand, brings you a story of love and friendship between Maitree (played by Shrenu Parikh) and her soul sister Nandini (played by Bhaweeka Chaudhary). The two best friends have been inseparable since their childhood, so much so that their mothers also question them as to what they will do when either of them gets married. While they are sure that nothing can break their friendship and that they will remain best friends even after marriage, it seems that life has its own plans for them! Despite getting married into the same house, with Maitree marrying Saaransh (played by Zaan Khan) and Nandini with Ashish (played by Namish Taneja) respectively, a shocking turn of events in their lives changes everything, making everyone wonder – ulajh ke do ungliyan, chali jo barso saath… kya hua ki choote hath? Kya hua ki hue khilaaf?
Though the shows have already grabbed a lot of eyeballs ever since their first promos hit air, Maitree and Lag Ja Gale were unveiled in front of the media at a mega launch event in Mumbai. The lead characters of Maitree performed to the show’s title track – Mitraa sung by Mannish Sharma and Rupali Moghe. As they tied each other friendship bands, they spoke about the value of friendship and established the concept of the show through a photo-op where the 2 BFFs have turned their backs on each other after a shocking turn of events has turned their lives upside down. Lag Ja Gale was brought to life at the event through an engaging skit with a Valentine’s Day theme, showcasing the love-hate relationship and the tongue-in-cheek nok-jhok that Shiv and Ishani share with each other.
To watch the intriguing journeys of all these wonderful characters, tune in to ‘Lag Ja Gale’ and ‘Maitree’ from 7th February, every Monday to Sunday at 6:30 pm and 7 pm respectively, only on Zee TV
