Colors Bangla launches "Aponjon"- a tale of love and revenge
18 June, 2015

Kolkata- The new upcoming show of Colors Bangla, “Aponjon”, explores the relationship between two girls. While they are born in two opposite sections of society, fate interchanges their lives. Starting July 6th, 2015, viewers will get to witness the story from Monday – Saturday at 8.30 pm only on COLORS Bangla!!

20 years ago, a convict in an act of retribution had switched his daughter with the daughter of the advocate who had him convicted wrongly. The convict before breathing his last confesses to the switch he had made with the two girls. The advocate locates his biological daughter Siuli and brings her back to live with his family including Antara whom he had raised as his own. The lives of both girls change immediately and in a twist of fate both girls fall for the same boy, Sam, whose parent’s death and the subsequent trial had caused Antara’s biological father to be wrongly convicted.

Adding a dose of freshness to the cast will be Rajdeep Gupta, who will be back on the small screen after a long time, essaying the role of Sam. Debutant Nabanita will be playing the role of Siuli and Debjani Modak will be seen as Antara. This show is being produced by Surinder Films and directed by Manish Ghosh. Commenting on the launch, Ritika Roy, Programming Head, Colors Bangla said, “Aponjon is a show that will be high on drama and is going to be very atypical of the archaic and old school thinking. The three people, whose present changes because of their past,are in some way linked to each other culminating to a story with all the elements of anticipation, drama and suspense. After the channel’s rebranding this is our first fiction show and the USP of this is its strong storyline and the three protagonists.”

Nachiketa, the renowned singer who has returned to playback after a long time, has done the title track of the song. Portions of the show have been shot in the hills of North Bengal. The show, with its youth centric concept and fresh presentation, is sure to be loved by the masses.
