Sairat, the highest grossing Marathi film ever which has even made waves on the international film circuit, is all set for its television premiere on Oct.2. Zee Marathi is all set to premiere the film at 7 PM IST.

For viewers not having subscribed to Zee Marathi, dittoTV lets you enjoy romantic drama live during its television premiere on Oct.2. The film is directed by Nagraj Manjule and stars Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar. It takes a critical look at Indian society in the 21st century.

Sairat holds the distinction of being the first ever Marathi film to cross the Rs.50 crore mark, and movie-buffs not only in Maharashtra but across the world have considered the movie a must-watch. Sairat was selected for the prestigious 66th Berlin International Film Festival and Rinku Rajguru (one of the movie's protagonists) was awarded the Special Jury Award at the 63rd National Film Awards in 2015 for her performance in the film.

For movie enthusiasts preferring to watch Sairat on the move, dittoTV is available for download on both Google Android and Apple iOS platforms. The subscription charges for one month, three months, six months and one year are Rs 20, Rs 50, Rs 90 and Rs 170 respectively.

"Sairat beautifully portrays the story of a young couple who is targeted and oppressed because they belong to different castes. It's a must-watch. And with dittoTV, now viewers not just in Maharashtra but across India can enjoy this widely acclaimed film live, wherever they are. This is a boon for viewers who may be travelling over the weekend, or do not have access to a television set and would otherwise miss out on the film. We are very excited to bring this film to viewers on our platform", stated Archana Anand, Business Head, dittoTV.
