The entertainment channel is being shown in five major cities across the country and has been on air since 1st December.

Speaking to HIP, the Assistant Sales Manager of 'Aaj', Sana Naz, informed us that the channel, besides running local dramas and shows, will also be showing Indian dramas that have already aired in the neighboring country.

"Aaj Entertainment's vision is to focus exclusively on the cultural traditions and values shared in the subcontinent. Therefore, we will also show Indian dramas as our audiences can relate to them."

Naz further said that they took inspiration from 'Zee Zindagi', India's only channel showing Pakistani dramas. Aaj Entertainment focuses on how people living in different countries can share the same stories.
