Star Kiran

Star Kiran launching on 6 June with lined up serials and movies. After facing criticism on social media Disney Star has corrected the spelling of Kirano to Kiran, resulting in a slight delay in the channel’s launching date. It was officially launched at an event in Bhubaneswar recently.

Disney star launched its Marathi movie channel Pravah Picture on 15 May 2022, Disney Star has officially taken the wraps off its Odia general entertainment channel Star Kiran, renamed from Star Kirano. The new Odia general entertainment channel will now be launched on Monday, 6 June 2022.


There is a slight delay in the launch date from 1 June to 6 June 2022 because of the renaming from Kirano to Kiran, which requires several formalities to be completed. The renaming of the channel name took place due to backlash from social media users regarding the spelling Kirano, which does not reflect the proper Odia pronunciation.

A fancy launch event was held recently in Bhubaneswar. Star Kiran was officially unveiled along with its slogan, “Eithu Arambha, Eithi Sambhaba” (Here we begin, here it is possible) — and this represents a new beginning for India’s largest broadcaster in a number of ways.

Star Kiran is the seventh regional genre in which Disney Star will operate, and the first new regional market that the broadcaster will enter since the acquisition of the Telugu-language Maa channels in 2015. Star Kiran launch looks promising as the channel launched with an intention to create a big impression from day one, with its line-up of both serials and movie premieres, and break new ground for a large but overlooked language. Star Kiran will be the first channel to give Odisha its first-ever HD channel.

The channel has some amazing lined up serials & movie premieres. Star Kiran has been preparing for launch for weeks, with serials being shot since January. Here are the list of four serials that will be aired on Star Kiran from 6 June, with more to follow in the coming months. According to reports many of them are remakes of Bengali serials that were originally aired on Star Jalsha, and later adapted to Disney Star’s other GECs such as Star Plus, Star Pravah, Asianet and Star Vijay — a formula that has proved very successful so far.
