India, right from the pre-independence era, has carried the mantle of being a powerhouse of poetic talent across the world. Taking this vision to new heights and extending the reach of our poetic excellence to the youth, ZEE LIVE – the Live Original Content & IP, and Livestream vertical of Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (ZEEL), brings a 90-minute marathon special ‘India Shayari Project’ on 15th August 2021.

The show will be an amalgamation of interspersed poetry, shayari and spoken word along with fascinating conversations on how poetry has lived the true test of time to become a potent tool of expression in the new age. In its first edition itself, India Shayari Project aims to make Poetry and Shayari more accessible and relevant to the youth. Viewers can catch this lyrical extravaganza on the digital platform of Moment House.

Sharing his views on being a part of this unique project, Javed Akhtar Sahab said, “India has been a country of many great poets and shayars. It is heartening to see the youth of today embrace and understand the beauty and nuances of the spoken word. It is always a pleasure to be a part of something innovative as Shayari as that is my passion and the essence of who I am.”
