MUMBAI: Bengali GEC Star Jalsha is launching a new fiction show ‘Mahapeeth Tarapeeth’ on 4th February. Produced by Subrata Roy Productions, ‘Mahapeeth Tarapeeth’ will air Monday to Sunday at 10 pm.

‘Mahapeeth Tarapeeth’ will explore the manifestation of the unparalleled Tarapeeth, which according to legends is home to one of the 51 parts (Tara- eyeball) of Maa Sati. It will depict how the Tantric Hindu temple became the revered Shakti Peeth by regaling tales known and unknown that surround it.

Set in 19th century Bengal, the show will narrate the origins of this transcendent shrine- the journey from fear to faith and chart the various phases of Maa Tara and Sadhak Byamakhyapa’s journey to fight against societal evils. It will narrate the journey of the omnipotent goddess’ origin and her miracles, her connection with her ardent devotee Byamakhyapa and the obstacles they overcome to abolish malpractices and superstitions in tumultuous times.

The title music is composed by ace music director Jeet Ganguly and sung by none other than Shreya Ghosal. The leads will be portrayed by Nabanita Das who plays the part of Maa Tara, Sabyasachi Chowdhury plays the part of Byamakhyapa and Sumit Ganguly who plays the part of the Tantrik.

Speaking about the new show, Star India EVP and Business Head of Star Jalsha and Jalsha Movies Sagnik Ghosh said, “Star Jalsha has always striven to introduce stories and characters which are memorable yet distinctive. Whether it is romance, comedy, mythology or devotion, we have always aspired to present something unique with every show which our viewers can relate with. A story of devotion & inspiration, good versus evil, right and wrong, ‘Mahapeeth Tarapeeth’ is about one of the most powerful deities, her devotee and their journey. And we are very excited to present this mystical enigma of tales known and unknown to the small screen.”
