On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Indian Mutiny, Zee News today announced its plans to telecast a special feature, 1857- Pehli Azaadi ka Sach, a comprehensively researched documentary on the event

Zee News will unravel the many myths that surround the famous uprising and contrast the British version of our history with what could have truly transpired.

While the British claim that the mutiny was a series of spontaneous, sporadic and unconnected events, Zee News presents an alternative view which points in the direction of it having been a planned uprising involving royalty, sepoys and common citizenry.

Commenting on the effort, Mr.Harish Doraiswamy, CEO, Zee News Limited, said, "Zee News is proud to present an inspiring program that seeks to provide us a different view of our own history and nationhood.”

The hour-long documentary will be aired on Zee News on May 19 at 9 p.m with repeat telecasts at 11 am on May 20 and 8 pm on May 21.
