ZEE5 PREMIERES NEXT TAMIL ORIGINAL FILM ‘IGLOO’
Mumbai, 17th July 2019: ZEE5, India’s fastest growing entertainment OTT platform announced an extensive line-up of 72 new Originals (till March 2020) in February 2018. As part of the same commitment, the platform now presents its next Tamil Original Film Igloo, a heart-warming story starring Amzath Khan, Anju Kurien, Matthew Verghese and Jeeva Ravi in lead roles. Directed by acclaimed film maker Bharath Mohan, Igloo is available exclusively on ZEE5.
Igloo is a story about Siva and Ramya who fight all odds to be together and then lose to fate when Ramya is detected with blood cancer. Here on, the story takes an emotional turn and concentrates on single parenting focusing on how Siva brings up his twin daughters.
Amzath Khan said, “The narration of Igloo left everyone emotional. That moment is etched in my mind forever. I essay the role of a doting father and through the shooting of the film, I have developed a bond with both the kids. Igloo is an emotional roller coaster. Performing such high-octane emotional scenes convincingly, was tough yet enriching. It is a story which needs to be watched and with ZEE5’s massive reach, I am sure that will happen.”
Director Bharath Mohan said, “Igloo is an emotional film about love and relationships. Each actor has given a phenomenal performance and I am sure audiences are going to connect with the film. We are happy to present the film on ZEE5 as they have an extensive repertoire of original Tamil content, much appreciated by the audience.”
Commenting on the announcement, Aparna Acharekar, Programming Head, ZEE5 India said, “All our recently launched Tamil shows like Auto Shankar, Thiravam, Postman have been received well by audiences. We are continuously working towards building our regional content and Igloo is our latest addition. With a compelling story, Igloo is about single parenting and the many challenges faced by a father. It is a starkly different story in our content mix and we are thrilled to offer this story to our viewers.”
Sharing his perspective, Manish Aggarwal, Business Head, ZEE5 India said, “At ZEE5, we are constantly working towards strengthening our content bucket and adding diverse genres which can be enjoyed by consumers.
