These dramas were shot are shot in real locations and have amazing original soundtracks. Zindagi also brought the era of telefilms back on Indian television.

This is a show thatgives real people a platform to exhibit their real emotions & in turn gives those they want to thank, a memory that will last them a lifetime. Shukriya is a simple, perhaps even a little underrated word…yet has the power to evoke a million positive emotions. It is a word that can bind people in a happy way & we feel that “Shukriya” should become a way of life. With this thought that also marries with Zindagi’s brand promise of “JodeyDilonKo”, we tookthis small, yet hopefully impactful step of bringing this beautiful offering “Shukriya”.
