The long time dream of DMDK President Vijayakanth has come true today. Popularly known as Captain in the industry, he comes with a new channel Captain TV. The television channel started its telecast this morning.
The channel was formally launched by the actor-politician in the wee hours of today at Vaanagaram, a suburb of Chennai. His wife Premalatha, close aides and senior officials of the television channel were present on the occasion.
“Films, movie-based programmes, news bulletins, reality shows, awareness programmes, serials and sting operations will be presented to the viewers in a nice package. Captain TV will not be your usual television channel,” says L K Sudeesh, the chief executive officer.
“We have roped in citizen journalists in most of the Assembly constituencies in Tamil Nadu to provide us with news and happening,” he says and adds: “We have got the telecast rights of more than 100 films.”
