ZEE TV has reason to celebrate after it walked away with two gongs at the recently held industry awards – FICCI Frames.
The channel’s reality TV show, ‘Dance India Dance’ won the ‘Most Successful Show of the Year’ award and Ulka Gupta who plays the protagonist in ‘Jhansi Ki Rani’ won the ‘Best Entertainer of the Year, Television’ award in the Female category at the FICCI Frames.
The award was presented by renowned actress Durga Jasraj and film director Ramesh Sippy to Mr. Nitin Vaidya (COO ZEEL and Business Head, ZEE TV) and Ashish Golwalkar (Non-Fiction Head, ZEE TV). Ulka Gupta, herself, was present to receive her award. In her speech, Durga Jasraj pointed out that this was a very obvious choice and there was no competition to beat the mass appeal of the show.
Mr. Nitin Vaidya, COO ZEEL and Business Head ZEE TV, added, “It’s celebration time. We have an award each both in the fiction as well as non- fiction category. Lux Dance India Dance has become a cult amongst the youth. Even IPL hasn’t been able to shake its ratings. I congratulate Manu for her tremendous grit, stamina and dedication. She is supremely talented and has a great future. Nobody would have done better justice to the character of Jhansi than her”.
