ZEE Biskope Celebrates the Love of Food With ‘Litti Chokha’ Love Story
Chaath puja just ended and the people of India are tuned into the culture of Bihar as elections and festivals shed some light on the state. While the Chaath puja cookies or thekuas are on everyone’s mind, the humble Litti Chokha isn’t far behind.
So Zee Biskope thought of cashing in on this festive fervour by celebrating bhojpuri culture through the legacy of food, specially, Litti Chokha.
Adding Gastronomical Filter To Entertainment
Sharing his thoughts on the festive offering, Samrat Ghosh, Cluster Head East, ZEE Entertainment Enterprises Ltd said, “As a brand, we take pride in curating novel viewer engagement drives that give us the opportunity to connect with our audience with offerings that celebrate their culture, foster the bond and affinity with the brand as well as expand our footprints by reaching out to incremental audience across the region.
