Zee5 is silently but rapidly capturing the attention of Indian viewers with its unique and out of the box offering. The streaming service is especially targeting the regional audience with newer and amazing content. In such an offering Zee5 set to release a new web series titled Date With Saie starring the bold, beautiful and dusky Saie Tamhankar. Saie rose to fame after her bold role in Hunterrr movie which had some spicy and hot scenes. She has not only worked in masala movies but also has highly acclaimed movies like Love Sonia, Tu Hi Re to her name. Date with Saie is set to release on the OTT platform on 5th December.
The story of the series will revolve around Saie and her fan who turns into a stalker over time. Date of Saie takes place in the backdrop of limelight and stardom, Mumbai. The series will depict the working of a maniac fan’s mind who wishes to make a documentary on her and follows her around with her knowledge capturing each and every moment of her life. It will take you through a spine-chilling ride and keep you on the edge of your seats as you observe what happens when a fan becomes a fanatic and turns your life upside down.
While talking about the Date with Saie and her experience while shooting for the series, Saie added that “Shooting for Date With Saie was a completely new and unconventional experience for me. The concept of the show is how a fan can turn fanatic and eerie and while shooting it I realized what consequences fame can lead to and coupled with technology can pose a huge danger for easy targets like us. It is my debut as a lead in a web series and I am glad to associate with ZEE5 in this maiden venture. Really excited and nervous about this launch.”
Somewhat same concept we have seen in recent movies like Fan starring Shahrukh Khan where his avid Fan turns into his biggest enemy when situations didn’t go as he imagined them. We will have to wait and watch how effectively Zee5 brings this story to life.
Manish Aggarwal, Business Head, ZEE5 India, said, “The widespread acceptance of ZEE5 by the Marathi-speaking audience has been an encouraging one for us. Not just Marathi Originals, but dubbed versions of other language shows in Marathi have also seen wide viewership. This led us to explore interesting and never-seen-before formats for this evolved audience. Date With Saie is a new age thriller that explores the complexities of evolving technology. With Saie Tamhankar’s popularity coupled with an interesting concept, this show will surely stand out.”
