ZEE5 unveils their biggest Bengali Original, ‘Sharate Aaj’ for Bangladeshi audiences on 21st February


MUMBAI: ZEE5 today unveils its third and biggest Bengali original web-series ‘Sharate Aaj’. Shot completely in London, the show traces the lives of a close-knit Bengali community getting set to bring in the festive cheer of Pujo when they are hit by a terror attack conspiracy. Will love and humanity triumph over hate and will the true spirit of Durga Puja prevail?

Renowned Actor Parambrata Chattopadhyay who also produced Kaali, ZEE5’s first Bengali Original web-series, is now directing Sharate Aaj and also acting in it. The power-packed star cast includes Payel Sarkar, Riddhi Sen, Surangana Bandyopadhyay and Joydeep Mukherjee.  The show is also high on the music quotient featuring a mix of Rabindra Sangeet and folk songs.

Parambrata Chattopadhyay said, “It feels good to be associated with ZEE5 for the second time. Working with this platform gives me the freedom to think creative and try different concepts. Sharate Aaj is the story of identity crisis, cultural bonding and a terror threat, making the show an edge-of-the-seat thriller. The show is completely shot in London and showcases the vibrant Bengali culture present in the city. I am really excited that this show is available globally on ZEE5. I know that this will especially strike a chord with audiences in Bangladesh, a country I have a strong association with.”

“At ZEE5, we’re constantly pushing the envelope to create shows across languages that strike a strong chord with our audiences across the globe, and we have a fabulous line-up of 72 such shows over the coming year. ‘Sharate Aaj’ is a new marquee show that explores the strong cultural thread that connects Bengalis all over the world and brings them together. With its stellar star cast, we’re sure that it will resonate strongly with our audiences in Bangladesh.” said Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer – ZEE5 Global

Other Originals lined up for February by ZEE5 include The Final Call, starring Arjun Rampal in his digital debut as a suicidal pilot on duty and Abhay, starring Kunal Kemmu playing an investigative officer in the first procedural format crime thriller. ZEE5 Original Rangbaaz is also now available in Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Marathi and Malayalam.
