The rivalry between the top UK Asian TV channels has

taken another turn today. Responding to last week’s

announcement by B4U Movies who have secured a handful of

this year’s big movies, ZEE has come forward by

announcing the acquisition of their mega movie to be

screened shortly on ZEE Network.

The movie in question is this year’s blockbuster Diwali

release Aitraaz starring Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor

and Priyanka Chopra. The movie has turned out to be a

mega hit thanks to its raunchy and adult theme

storyline. A date for the screening of the premiere has

not been confirmed.

Aitraaz was released last month and looks likely to be

shown as part of ZEE Network’s ten year anniversary

celebrations in March next year. Other movies ZEE have

secured the rights of are Taalash, which incidentally

also stars Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor and Bombay

starring Manisha Koiralla.
