This Durga Puja, ZEE5, has launched a digital campaign #MaayerSatheMaakeDekha to encourage the audience to celebrate this pujo by paying a tribute to their mother alongside Maa Durga.
The platform has roped in 5 renowned celebrities of the Bengali entertainment industry to feature in 5 heart-warming videos, where each of them reminisce about their childhood memories around pujo, realizing in the bargain how mothers would often get relegated to the sidelines for the overall fanfare.
The campaign makes an impassioned appeal to everybody to appreciate and recognize our mothers more, and most importantly, give them our love and time. The videos also see each of the known faces highlight all the special things they will do for their mother to make this pujo memorable for them, encouraging the audience to do the same.
Kickstarting today and running up to October 26, the initiative will also see live streaming of virtual pujos from all top pandals across Kolkata, a first for any digital platform in the country.
Avi Kumar, Head Brand Marketing & Supply, ZEE5 India, said, “Durga Pujo is inarguably one of the greatest festivals celebrated in India. Backed by strong consumer insights, #MaayerSatheMaakeDekha connects a chord with the consumers.
“ZEE5 continues to stay true to its promise of providing real, resonant, and relevant content to its users. We hope this initiative will contribute to making this pujo more memorable one for everybody,” Kumar said.
