Utsav Gold has confirmed that it will be premiering a blockbuster Punjabi film title every month.
For the first time, Utsav Gold will be adding Punjabi film titles to its schedule. The news comes as a response to rival, PTC Punjabi’s growing success in the UK. It is worth also adding that Star UK recently added Punjabi channel, Saga Hits on its digital platform, Hotstar.
Utsav Gold will launch its Punjabi movie slot on Sunday 28th February 2021 with the premiere of ‘Subedar Joginder Singh’ starring Gippy Grewal. The film is a story of a warrior who was awarded the Param Vir Chakra.
Other movies confirmed to air include ‘Do Dooni Panj’ in March, ‘Ardaas Karan’ in April, ‘Rang Panjab’ in May, ‘Manje Bistre’ in June, ‘Mar Gaye Oye Loko’ in July, ‘Nankana’ in August, ‘Parahuna’ in September, ‘Manje Bistre 2’ in October and ‘Son of Manjeet Singh’ in November.
Incidentally, the UK’s first Punjabi film channel, Pitaara is set to launch on Sky in March.
