Two new originals to mark the beginning of AltBalaji and Zee5 collaboration

Country's two popular OTT platforms, ALTBalaji and ZEE5, recently announced a content alliance, and following the same, came the trailer launch of two Originals - Coldd Lassi Aur Chicken Masala and Mission Over Mars (M-O-M). These shows which have been co-created will be available on both platforms, further bolstering their content library. In a recently held event, the cast and crew of both the shows released their trailers. Present at the event were Ekta Kapoor, Aparna Acharekar, Divyanka Tripathi, Rajeev Khandelwal, Sakshi Tanwar, Mona Singh, Nidhi Singh and Palomi Ghosh.

The first show, Coldd Lassi aur Chicken Masala starring Rajeev Khandelwal and Divyanka Tripathi, is a story of two aspiring Chefs-Nitya and Vikram. The trailer gives a sneak peek into their lives as they fall in love but get separated due to circumstances, and eventually, it builds curiosity among viewers, while momentarily showcasing their recipe of love which is infused with love from the past and hatred from the present. Their crackling chemistry sure promises a delicious treat but leaves a thousand questions unanswered. Why do they fall apart? ... Will they be able to resist the conspicuous attraction?  The second show, Mission Over Mars (M-O-M) is a fictional adaptation of real-life heroes at ISRO who worked on Mangalyaan and played pivotal roles in making the mission success against all odds. The web-series charts out the journey of M-O-M from inception to execution and will be a moving story of the faith and determination of four lady-scientists who aid ISA (Indian Space Agency) to overcome insurmountable technical and financial challenges as well as time pressures to mount the successful mission over mars. The show stars some of the most prolific actors Sakshi Tanwar, Mona Singh, Nidhi Singh, Palomi Ghosh in lead roles, along with veteran actors Ashish Vidyarthi and Mohan Joshi in prominent roles. Directed by ace filmmaker Pradeep Sarkar, the web-series is produced by Endemol India.

Sharing her excitement, Ekta Kapoor, Joint MD, Balaji Telefilms said, "Zee5 is one of the most successful apps and it is time for collaboration. I got my first chance from Zee. There is a bond between both the companies and this will mark the start of something brilliant to come. We decided to tell the story of Mars mission, and tried to weave a fictional story around it. Patriotism and feminism are the two subjects our country is fighting for, and society has some perceptions about it. We have tried to make a small difference with our show. Coldd Lassi aur Chicken Masala with two of the biggest stars on Indian Television coming together for the first time, in never before seen avatars, is equally special for me."

Talking about the collaboration, Aparna Acharekar, Programming Head, ZEE5 said, Aparna Acharekar, Programming Head, ZEE5 India said, “With Coldd Lassi Aur Chicken Masala and Mission Over Mars, we take the first step towards strengthening our association with ALTBalaji. 2019 has been a great year so far with us having clocked in some of our biggest successes this year – The Final Call, Abhay, Kaafir, Barot House and many more. Through this association with ALTBalaji, we believe we will be able to bring a robust portfolio of engaging content to our subscribers the world over.”

Coldd Lassi aur Chicken Masala will stream on September 3rd and Mission Over Mars (M-O-M) will follow on September 10, 2019.
