Mumbai: When it comes to the Bhojpuri heartland, there’s nothing better than Litti Chokha that makes occasions special. Litti Chokha is not just a dish but the identity of the region. Litti Chokha has been celebrated as the authentic avatar of Bhojpuri cuisine. Keeping the festivities rolling beyond Chhath, ZEE Biskope curates Nestle Munch & Fortune Kachi Ghani Mustard Oil co-present Litti Chokha Diwas on 27 November for its extended family – the ardent viewers.
The brand launches yet another series of category first – an anthem and an animation video that narrates Litti Chokha ki kahani unhi ke zubani (self-narration by Litti Chokha). The video personifies Litti & Chokha where Litti is a popular, self-made woman who is in love with Chokha. However, Chokha – a Casanova has switching loyalties which disappoints Litti. Nevertheless, they both know that they complete each other and are madly in love with.
While the video depicts the love between the couple Litti & Chokha, it’s now time for viewers to also show their love for their favourite dish. Viewers are invited to share how do they enjoy Litti Chokha in different ways. Whether they enjoy it with chilli sauce instead of green chutney, or when catching up with friends, with families on special occasion or on dates, as an evening snack or on breakfast, the authentic version or a self-invented variation. They need to share the message, their photo with their favourite Litti Chokha along with their name and location on the brand’s Whatsapp number 9169315016 within 7 December. The best entries will be featured on ZEE Biskope TV & social platforms.
Amarpreet Singh Saini, Business Head, ZEE Biskope and BIG Ganga said, “Extending the festive extravaganza, Litti Chokha Diwas will be ZEE Biskope’s first initiative in the food category that takes the hyper-local Bhojpuri entertainment through the gastronomical filter. The Litti-Chokha anthem blended with the animation video is yet another category first catered to the youth audience in their preferred way. It projects the brand’s obsession in consumer centrism, bringing alive the cultural vibrancy of the region and establishing the channel as a truly movie plus brand.”
Staying true to traditions, ZEE Biskope brings together their audience’s love for this traditional snack and their merriment during festivals. As a channel known to provide a heavy dose of flavour in its programming all around the year, the flavorsome initiative of ‘Litti Chokha Diwas’ witnesses the earthiness of Bhojpuri culture in an offering that binds the entire region together.
