Deepto TV celebrates its first year
The celebration took place at the Karwan Bazar headquarters. Finance Minister AMA Muhith, Civil Aviation and Tourism Minister Rashed Khan Menon, RAB Director General Benazir Ahmed, Kazi Media Limited Managing Director Kazi Zahedul Hasan and Deepto TV Chief Operating Officer Qazi Urfi Ahmed attended the ceremony. “The media sector in our country has rapidly expanded. I have very little time to watch television, but when I do, I enjoy their hit dubbed TV series Sultan Suleiman,” the finance minister said. He also praised the audience's reception of the channel over the past year. Menon asked the TV staff to telecast more programmes related to Bangladesh and the Liberation War. Deepto TV has worked hard since airing on November 18, 2015 to gain popularity nationwide, Kazi Zahedul Hassan said. “The tireless efforts of our staff has paid off in the tremendous popularity enjoyed by Deepto TV amongst the audience,” he added. The managing director further said Deepto TV embraces the spirit of the Liberation War, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Deepto TV Directors Kazi Zahin Hasan and Kazi Zeeshan Hasan, prominent political leaders, media and cultural personalities and other dignitaries attended the programme. Singer and Parliament Member Momtaj Begum were amongst the artists who performed in the cultural programme. Deepto TV started airing with the slogan “Aloy Bhuban Bhora” (The world is filled with light) on November 18, 2015. The channel, owned by Kazi Media Limited, has won over millions of Bangladeshi hearts since then. Airing a dubbed series such as Sultan Suleiman along with carefully curated content, Deepto has positioned itself at the top, according to the country’s Television Rating Point data. Their primary objective is to attract the local audience and has done so by producing “Aparajita”,“Palki” and “Khuje Phiri Takey”, along with foreign dubbed TV dramas and cartoons. Deepto TV’s production Khelaghor also gained huge popularity after its premiere. The channel has built five shooting studios and six dubbing studios and employed more than 300 people.
