Saie Tamhankar says, “Shooting for Date With Saie was a completely new and unconventional experience for me. I am thrilled to make my digital debut with such an amazing concept. It led me to think about the consequences that fame can lead to andcoupledwith technology, the huge danger it can pose for easy targets like us. I am glad to associate with ZEE5whose phenomenal reach will ensure a larger audience can view it on the platform. Really looking forward to this one.”
Manish Aggarwal, Business Head, ZEE5 Indiasaid, “With the launch of Liftman and Horn Ok Please, the widespread acceptance of ZEE5 by the Marathi-speaking audience has been an encouraging one for us. Not just Marathi Originals, but dubbed versions of other language shows – Karenjit Kaur (Hindi), Kallachirippu (Tamil), Utsaha Ithihasam (Malayalam), Kaali (Bengali) – in Marathi have also seen wide viewership. This led us to explore edgy and never-seen-before formats for this evolved audience. Date With Saie is a new-age thriller that explores the complexities of evolving technology. Saie’s popularity complemented by this interesting concept – we trust we have a winner.”
Aparna Acharekar, Programming Head, ZEE5 India said, “Date With Saie deals with a topic that is still prevalent today – stalking. The story is about a film-maker who is obsessed with Saie and shoots a movie with her, without her knowing. At ZEE5, we constantly strive to present the best content created in a way that interests the consumer. From a Marathi Originals standpoint, we already have three shows on the platform including Date With Saie which premieres on 5th December. Saie Tamhankar is a popular actress and along with actor Rohit Kokate, Potadi Entertainment and Director Dnyanesh Zoting, the entire team has put together an interesting and unique Marathi web-series.”
