Syndication

The contemporary approach to our dramas with a greater focus on stronger roles for women who are surging ahead with a desire to influence and impact the world enables it to cross over cultures and engage with audiences worldwide. They are not just popular in Asia, Europe and the Middle East but also in Turkey and Latin America; markets with strong locally produced content.

 

Star India’s globally acclaimed show, ‘Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon’, created history in 2016 when it became the first ever Indian drama series to be aired on Turkish TV; the biggest exporters of drama series in the world. The show not only quadrupled the channel ratings but also made the stars household names across Turkey. This paved the way for more Indian stories to be broadcast on Turkish television.

Star India’s interpretation of the literary classic Saraswati Chandra has captivated audiences in Latin America; hitherto an untapped market for Indian dramas. The poignant love story mounted with impressive production has kindled an interest for Indian dramas with partners in Chile investing in marketing efforts to explain Indian culture and traditions. Clearly, an indication of how Indian dramas can influence narratives.
