Hyderabad : As Telangana and Andhra Pradesh gear up to celebrate the auspicious festival of Sankranthi, Zee Telugu, one of the leading Telugu General Entertainment Channels, ventures into the heartlands of Kerala to bring in the first festival of the year. Adding the blissful touch of ‘God’s own country’ to the ‘food bowl of the south’, Zee Telugu has curated a special treat for the Zee Kutumbham starting 13th January which will not only scale up the celebrations, fervor and gaiety but also enhance the entertainment quotient with a mix of special dances, comedy skits, music and lots of fun.
