Aaj Robibar, a widely celebrated TV drama series from Bangladesh, is all set to be aired on a popular Indian TV channel, Star Plus at 11:30pm from October 1. Written and directed by the iconic Bangladeshi Humayun Ahmed, the drama series was first aired on BTV, the state owned TV, in 1996. Ten years later, the series was aired again on Channel i, a private TV channel.
After airing on BTV and Channel i, the drama series is set for its third run on Star Plus, a popular Indian TV channel. Meher Afroz Shaon, Humayun Ahmed’s wife, actor and director, confirmed the news.
The news is quite appeasing for fans of Humayun Ahmed and Bangladeshi people harbour a lot of hate towards some programs on Star Plus. Due to this, for the first time, India’s dominating TV network took the initiative to air a Bangladeshi program to cater to their large Bangladeshi audience. The channel has already begun promotion from last Sunday, with the title “Today Is Sunday” after the show was dubbed from Bengali to Hindi.
Meher Afroz Shaon said, “Although I am anxious, I am also quite happy. As a Humayun fan this news is quite joyous. All credit goes to Channel i and Star Plus executives. The whole thing has only materialised because of the two parties’ initiative and perseverance.”
The comedy drama casts Abul Hayat, Aly Zaker, Suborna Mustafa, Asaduzzaman Noor, Jahid Hasan, Meher Afroz Shaon, Shila Ahmed, Abul Khayer, and Faruk Ahmed.
