New Delhi.ZEE5, India’s largest home video streaming platform, announces the world digital premiere of ‘Salaam Venky’. After the success of ‘Unchai’ and ‘Chhatriwali’, viewers will now enjoy Salaam Venky on ZEE5. The film will be streamed on OTT platform G5 on 10 February. The film is helmed by National Award winning director Revathi. Kajol is in the lead role in the film.
Talking about the story of the film, it is based on a true incident in the life of a young boy. Kajol plays Vishal’s mother in the film. The film is based on the story of a sick son who is fighting a battle with death and in this battle his mother i.e. Kajol supports him at every step. In this film, the emotions and feelings between mother and son have been shown very closely.
Talking about the film, Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India said, “At ZEE5, we believe in showcasing exceptional talent, high-quality production, vivid formats and stories across genres. Adding to our repertoire of films, we are happy to present Salaam Venky. Having delivered several light-hearted dramas, investigative thrillers and mysteries in the past, Salaam will add something fresh to Venky’s content library. The story has a wonderful narrative that emphasizes on the trials, tribulations and extraordinary heroism of every mother in this world. We are positive that the film will receive a good response from the audience.”
Whereas, Kajol said, “Shooting for Salaam Venky was an emotional experience for me. Being a mother of two kids, I can relate to Sujata’s character on a personal level. When your child or someone close to you is in pain, he is not the only one suffering, it is you who finds it difficult to cope with those heartbreaking moments of life. It’s hard to be “brave” or “strong,” no matter how hard you try to keep your emotions together. In such times one needs to keep faith and believe in miracles. After Salaam Venky, all I have learned is that life is uncertain so don’t spend your time worrying about the future or living in the past. Live your life to the fullest. I feel proud to be recognized for such a meaningful film and I am glad that my fans will get to see it once again on ZEE5.
