But something changed this time. We all know that for a while now Subhash Chandra's Zee TV is among the most popular channels in Pakistan. In 2014, Zee launched a new channel in India called Zindagi, especially meant to air popular Pakistani serials. In came a host of popular TV serials from across the border.
