ZEE5 India realizes the gloominess that the nation faces today and hence and there is an equal need to boost the entertainment quotient. And with shows putting their shoots on hold at present, the lack of newer episodes of shows like Kumkum Bhagya and Kundali Bhagya would leave a void for entertainment for the viewers. To ensure that nobody misses out on the fun at home, the Super-App of India now offers an even larger bouquet of blockbuster movies, new exclusives, binge-worthy ZEE5 Originals, premium content for free, best of your favourite artists and evergreen shows!
This week, we have ensured your TV entertainment in the evenings! From 9 to 10 p.m., watch how romance blossoms between Karan (Ram Kapoor) and Tipsy (Sakshi Tanwar) on Karrle Tu Bhi Mohabbat. Well, don’t miss out on the reunion of two worlds through Sharman Joshi (Anuj) and Asha Negi (Gauravi) on the serial Baarish, which will air at 10 p.m. Then, the love triangle of Mona Singh, Gurdip Punjj, and Ronit Roy will return with Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain at 10:30 p.m. Throughout the day, you can watch Kasam Se and Brahmarakshas at 2:00 and 5:00 p.m., while the historical movie Panipat will air on Sunday (29 March 2020).
