MultiChoice is proud to announce that DStv Premium, DStv Extra and DStv Compact customers will soon get to experience the pearl of Asia as never before.

When it comes to passion, desperate love or bitter betrayal, no one does it quite like Bollywood. Their tales of joy and sorrow intermingled with spectacular dancing, dazzling outfits and precise choreography have been setting screens alight for 117 years.

MultiChoice is proud to announce that DStv Premium, DStv Extra and DStv Compact customers will soon get to experience the pearl of Asia as never before. On Wednesday 1 March 2017, Zee Bollymovies (114) – a 24-hour, English-dubbed Bollywood-movies-only channel will launch!

Customers will be treated to epic, award-winning tales of the fragile human condition. Take Rustom for example. Naval officer Rustom Pavri (Akshay Kumar) has just found out that his wife, Cynthia Pavri (Ileana D’Cruz), has been having an affair with his best friend, Vikram Makhija (Arjan Bajwa).

While this particular story dates back to the late 1950s, Rustom was penned by the hugely talented Vipul K Rawal and directed by Tinu Suresh Desai. Desai won Most Promising Debut Director at the recent Star Screen Awards held in India last year, which speaks to the caliber of movies you can expect to see. Be sure to catch the undulating saga of Rustom on channel 114 on 1 March at 18:00.

DStv already carries Zee World on channel 166, and its success – along with a growing appetite for all things Bollywood – has led to this launch. Zee Bollymovies is a channel geared specifically for South African tastes and we’re sure it will keep you entertained and enthralled.
