  1. Zee had a series called Aap jo bole toh haan aap jo bole toh naa.. It was hosted by Suhel Seth. Quite pioneering but India is a one TV household country and the woman of the house dictates TV viewing. She has to be involved in interactivity else there is nothing.

    On a different note, I think Nikhil with all due respect to your digital expertise, you have no understanding of the TV business and the content for television. It would be good if you stay away from TV comments

  2. Did they? I don't remember that one, though I have come across some interesting possibilities from a scriptwriter friend. Will check.

    I think Zee has PlayTV, which was started in conjunction with Cellcast (now funded by Canaan).. That's still running, though Cellcast opted out of it a while back.
