Remembered ‘Shaanivaar Ki Raat Amitabh Ke Sath’ Yes? No? Okay for the uninitiated it was a segment on Zee Cinema which used to show legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan’s blockbuster films to its viewers over a given period of time. Now passing the baton from Shahensha to Khiladi Kumar a.k.a Akshay Kumar, the channel commemorating the 50th birthday of Akshay will telecast some of his movies that have never been shown on television before.
In a career spanning over 25 years in the Indian film industry, Akshay Kumar, has done over a whopping 120 films. Akshay Kumar’s films across genres have been consistently successful at the Box Office and have broken several viewership records on television as well.
As Akshay will be celebrating his 50th birthday on September 9, so on each Saturday of this month (his birthday month) the channel will be treating his fans with his films like JAANWAR, ANDAAZ, EK RISHTA and DOSTI: FRIENDS FOREVER.
Ever since he started as a producer in 1988, Suneel Darshan was a rare producer who did not sell the satellite rights of any of his movies. Giving the satellite rights of Akshay Kumar’s films amongst other blockbusters to Zee Cinema, Suneel Darshan said, “Television is a growing medium that is available in every household and Zee Cinema is synonymous to being the family movie destination in millions of Indian households. Working with Akshay has always been a great experience. He is disciplined and fun loving at the same time. Akshay made a comeback with JAANWAR, strengthened his position with EK RISHTAA and sky rocketed after ANDAAZ. With Zee Cinema showcasing our movies for the first time on television, I am excited to see the audience response. It is the same feeling one gets when a film is about to hit the theatres. I am hopeful of receiving greater adulation than we did during the theatrical release.”
So guys now you know what to do on Saturdays right? Yes it’s ‘Shanivaar Ki Raat Akshay Ke Saath’.
We are certain that Akki will keep entertaining us for years to come. Having a rocking year ahead Mr. Khiladi.
