MUMBAI: This January, Star Jalsha brings to its viewers a heart wrenching tale of love, passion and sacrifice with “Dhrubotara”. It promises to tug at viewers heartstrings with its simple yet powerful depiction of complex human emotions- love,envy and hope through its engaging narrative and dynamic characters. Dhrubotara will air from 27 January onwards, every Monday to Friday at 9.30 pm, on Star Jalsha SD and Star Jalsha HD.   

Dhrubotara revolves around the story of three contrasting personalities- Dhrubo, Tara and Agni. The story weaves together the complex relationship between the three characters. Tara has been raised by Agni’s family. She loves Agni since her childhood, so does Agni but circumstances have pulled them apart. They again get a chance to come together but influential businessman Dhrubo makes a shrewd move. Will Tara sacrifice herself to save the love of her life Agni and his family?

Produced by Acropolis Entertainment, Dhrubotara will explore the different shades of love through intricate storytelling. The show boasts of an extremely versatile cast with Shyamoupti Mudly as “Tara”, Indrajeet Bose as” Dhrubo” and Suvajit Kar as “Agni” in the lead roles.  

Dhrubotara Producer Snigdha Basu said, “Our relationship with Star goes back to 2013. Ever since Bodhuboron, Acropolis and Star have enjoyed a very strong relationship and we as a house have always been too keen to extend it further. With every show the bond has grown stronger. Star as a channel has always been supportive. This is proven by the fact that today from producing one show on their platform we have gone up to producing three shows. We sincerely hope that this relationship grows even further, and we keep on putting up shows that will entertain our audience for years to come.It is often said that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. This is a statement that holds true for our upcoming show Dhrubotara. On the surface of it Dhrubotara might seem like a simple love triangle, involving Tara, Agni and Dhrubo but the magic of the show lies in the intricacies of each of these relationships. The story tries to weave together the emotional and economical conflict of its characters in a way that has been rarely explored in most of the television soaps. Love, nostalgia, pride and prejudice come into play in telling a story that is unique yet rooted to its true-blue middle-class Bengali values."

Star India regional entertainment CEO Kevin Vaz said, “Our association with Acropolis Entertainment has been nothing short of extraordinary. Together Star Jalsha and Acropolis Entertainment have presented unforgettable shows like Bodhuboron, MilonTithi and now IrabotirChupkothaand SanjherBaati,which the viewers have loved and adored. We team up yet again this time to present another unique love story to enthrall the audience once more. Dhrubotara is a modern-day love story where viewers will encounter and experience bittersweet emotions of life.We invite the viewer to be a part of this journey as our protagonists experience the familiar emotions of love, passion and of course heartbreaks. We are very excited to see the viewers reaction to the show.”
