Popular free-to-air entertainment channel NDTV Imagine will begin telecasting weekday afternoon movies from later this month.

The broadcaster, which up until now has only screened films during weekends will show movies Monday to Friday at 15:30 from Monday 22nd June.

A spokesman for the channel said that the variety of the films lined up will be a mix of new and old, which viewers may have missed during their first screenings at the weekend.

Some of the titles include ‘Ek Chalis Ki Last Local’, ‘Shikhar’, ‘Coolie No.1’, ‘The Train’, ‘Khakee’ amongst many others.

The channel has already upset rival broadcasters by screening some of the biggest movie premieres first and free-to-air. The assault continues when NDTV Imagine screens the likes of ‘Ghajini’ and ‘Chandni Chowk To China’ first in the UK in the coming weeks.

Also, starting from Monday 22nd June, NDTV Imagine will roll out its new series ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ based on the classic Bollywood film starring Hema Malini.
