Extraordinary Punjabi talent, Bollywood films and Nostalgia when mixed together makes a new show called ‘Purani Reel’. This soon to be launched Anchor based show on Zee Punjabi will bring back golden moments of great Punjabi entertainers and legendary artists like Prithvi Raj Kapoor, Balraj Sahni, Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Dharmendra and many others who ruled the silver screen with their lasting memories.
In fact, from the very early days, Kapoors, Deols, Khannas, Dutts, Roshans and other Punjabi families have contributed potentially to the Indian Film industry which is referred to as Bollywood today. They have given extraordinary talent in the field of acting, singing, direction, film production and others. They dominated the industry to such an extent that use of Punjabi language in films has become the norm of the day as no Hindi film, generally, is considered a Box office hit today, until it has Punjabi masala in it.
Full of zeal and enterprising by nature Punjabis, not alone in farming or business, have proved their mettle in music, art and cinema as well. Let’s put it like this, Punjabi talent ventured into Bollywood, conquered it and influenced it to an extent that it endures a new phenomenon these days called ‘Punjabification’.
In a nutshell, this soon to be launched show ‘Purani Reel’ is inspired by Punjabis in Bollywood and the indelible marks left behind by them. The show represents the entertainment genre on Zee Punjabi and would highlight the legendary Punjabi talent in Bollywood and their works on reels. The launching Episode will have Prithvi Raj Kapoor in the spot light on 25th April and Balraj Sahni would follow in the second episode of Purani Reel on 2nd May, 2012.
So stay tuned to re-live the nostalgia as Punjabi Bollywood Stars from yonder years would enter your drawing rooms every Wednesday at 9 PM through ‘Purani Reel’ only on Zee Punjabi.
