In this episode of the Zee TV show Priyo Tarakar Andarmahal, host Debjani visits couples from the Bengali television industry. First she calls up TV actor Sudipta Chakraborty, who has starred in Bikele Bhorer Phool, and her partner, Swarno, who is also a TV serial actor. Watch the episode here:
We find Sudipta sitting in their living room with an empty dish in her hand, and as it turns out, Swarno is making roshogollas and she is waiting to eating them! Debjani is impressed and wants to know the story of how their romance started, and they tell us.
They met when they were working on a show as child actors, and have been fast friends since. However, things only took a romantic turn much later when Swarno realised his feelings and told Sudipta, who didn’t quite believe him until he proved it in various ways! Swarno then sings a Bengali song for her while playing his guitar. Debjani then wants Sudipta to woo him too, and she delivers a filmy dialogue in a different dialect, which he can’t stop laughing at. Then, Debjani calls up actors Jagriti Goswami and Aniruddha Ghatak.
We find the couple squabbling about what kind of destination is better– mountains or beaches. Jagriti prefers mountains and Aniruddha, the sea. The realise they are on screen, and snap out of it. Jagriti tells us that they had been planning a holiday before the lockdown, which did not take place. The couples then play a singing challenge by drawing chits of paper with names of famous onscreen pairs, and singing a song featuring them. We then meet Jagriti’s mother-in-law.
We learn that she was Jagriti’s dance teacher before she even met Aniruddha! Then, Debjani makes the couples play ‘organic Ludo,’ that is, a game of Ludo not with the regular board, but with different fruits and vegetables!
Then, Jagriti tells us that at her wedding, her sister Joyeeta had the most fun because she hid Aniruddha’s shoes and charged him Rs 7,000 to retrieve them! Hearing this, Debjani decides to call up Joyeeta.
Joyeeta again gets Jagriti to hide her husband’s shoes, and tries to give Aniruddha clues to figure out where they are, in exchange for mutton biryani. Then, Debjani gives Sudipta and Swarno an ironing challenge, where they have to finish ironing clothes within a short time. They complete this very successfully.
The episode closes with Debjani calling up singer June Banerjee, who sings them a song, while they all dance along.
