    Zee Entertainment Enterprises share price: Zee shares were in focus on Thursday after the company signed a binding agreement with Sony. What should investors do with Zee Entertainment shares post the merger? Here's what brokerages say:

    Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) shares rose on Thursday, a day after the media conglomerate finalised a deal with Sony's India unit, Sony Pictures Networks India, to merge their television channels, film assets and streaming platforms. The two groups are joining forces to take on the likes of Netflix and Disney in the country.
    ZEEL shares rose more than two percent on Thursday before trimming most of those gains. The stock was last seen up 0.7 percent at Rs 351 on BSE, having risen as much as 2.4 percent to Rs 357 earlier in the day.
    On Wednesday, Zee shares ended with a gain of half a percent, recovering initial losses after the news.
