Colors Bangla revamps line-up with 3 new shows
MUMBAI: Colors Bangla is refreshing its evening programming line-up with new content from 1 May.
The channel will launch three new shows—‘Mahaprabhu Sree Chaitanya’ on 1 May at 6:30 pm, ‘Roopkatha’ on 2 May at 7 pm and ‘Jhumur’ on 3 May at 7:30 pm.
‘Mahaprabhu Sree Chaitanya’ traces the life of spiritual leader Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who inspired and influenced his followers through his wisdom and miracles. Ishaan will portray Chaitanya, spreading love and propagating the path to achieve perfection in life. Produced by Rana Sarkar, the show has music composed by critically acclaimed music director Indradip Dasgupta.
‘Roopkatha’ is a fantasy drama about Bhumi, the princess of Rupnagar, who grew up in the jungle instead of a palace. Motivated to reclaim her rightful place in the kingdom, Bhumi is faced with the impossible task of journeying across the seven seas and 13 rivers to prepare for her ultimate task of facing her nemesis Mohini, the queen of darkness. The show is produced by Surinder Films, and features Mainak Banerjee and Rimjhim Mitra in lead roles.
‘Jhumur’ is the story of unfading friendship between Jhumur and Nayanika, hailing from different backgrounds, separated by economic status but bound by fate forever. Adapted from the super-hit show ‘Udaan’ on Colors, ‘Jhumur’ is produced by Blue Water Pictures, and has veteran TV actors Kaushik Chakraborty and Lopamudra Sinha essaying key roles.
Commenting on the new line-up, Colors Bangla and Colors Odia business head Rahul Chakravarti said, “At Colors Bangla, we are always looking to entertain the viewers with unparalleled content that has the potential to make their evenings worthwhile. The upcoming set of shows has been handpicked keeping in mind our viewers’ need for quality and variety content. Filling in the gaps in the bouquet of offerings on television, we are proud to present ‘Mahaprabhu Sree Chaitanya’—a tale of a highly regarded spiritual leader; ‘Roopkatha’—a fantasy show; and ‘Jhumur’—a very intimate story about friendship and love. Starting 1 May, prime time on Colors Bangla will come with a new promise.”
