Kolkata- Of all the beautiful relations of the world, the bond that sisters have among themselves is one of the sweetest bonds one could ever see. Infusing a fresh perspective on family ties and sacrifice, COLORS Bangla brings forth the story of unbreakable bond between two sisters through “Kanak Kakan”. Scheduled to launch on the Bengali New Year the show celebrates the struggle of two sisters and how they stand by each other against all adversities. The show Kanak Kakan produced by Snehasish Chakroborty will go on air from 15th April every Monday to Saturday at 8 pm on COLORS Bangla.

The sisters Kanak and Kakan are connected by a deep bond specially with the passing away of their parents. Kanak the younger sister is a sprinter and Kakan is a very good dancer. Though Kakan has lungs problems yet she gives tuition in dancing schools as well as attends functions to make ends meet. She tries her level best to fulfil her father’s desire of seeing her younger sister become a successful sprinter. The story sees the comeback of popular actress Shweta Bhattacharya as Kakan and beautiful Srabani Bhunia plays the role of Kanak.
