Since the re-launch of our original programming, we are closely monitoring the response of viewers to our content and are trying to satiate their requests with unique programming propositions. With Jai Jagannath we are focusing on the unheard tales of Lord Jagannath who is worshipped in almost every home in Bengal. On the other hand, Basanta Bilash Messbari builds on nostalgia and serves story of a messbari where the seemingly different members, though divided by blood are united by emotions. Basanta Bilash Messbari is a Sitcom and will have a completely different appeal to our audiences. We hope that audience will enjoy the show as much as we did while making it. With Basanta Bilash Messbari we are also getting back popular actors Kanchan and Kamalika back on screen after a long time.“
