JAHAANARA – Monday to Friday at 9pm

 Set in a backdrop of a conventional Muslim community and society, Jahaanara tells the tale of two sisters Jahaanara and Rubina, with strikingly opposite personalities and outlook to life, as they take on the traditional custom of ‘Triple Talaaq’. Shweta Mishra makes her debut as the protagonist ‘Jahaanara’, with acclaimed actor Payal Dey, taking the mantle of her elder sister ‘Rubina’ in the show. After a series of devious plotting and unfortunate twists & turns, both sisters are eventually married to the same man, who feints behind religious customs and traditions. Currently mired in controversy, the topic of ‘Triple Talaaq’ is accosted in the upcoming Muslim drama. Playing pivotal roles, popular actors Sraboni Banik, Sumit Samaddar, Ananda Ghosh & Kushal Chakraborty complete the ensemble cast of the show.

MUKHOSHER ARALE – Monday to Friday at 9:30pm

Mukhosher Arale magnifies the feeling of patriotism and the undying love for one’s country. Playing the role of the protagonist – ‘Jhinuk’, Sarmishtha Acharjya goes up against the enemies of the country and uncovers the conspiracies to create national unrest. But the life of a patriot faces many more trials and tribulations, as Jhinuk is torn away from the love of her life ‘Arko’ played by Arko Paul Chowdhury and thrown into the chaos of trying to safeguard the country. Supporting the strong cast of the show, Bratya Basu, Rajib Chatterjee, and Biswajit Chakroborty play crucial roles in this compelling action-romantic drama.

After an epic premiere season of Ke Hobe Bangla r Kotipoti, that gave audience a once in a lifetime opportunity to transform dreams into reality and brought forth several life-changing stories, COLORS Bangla will keep viewers engrossed by the enthralling performances and gripping storyline of the new shows.

Guaranteeing weekdays filled with entertainment and fueled by action, drama, romance and much more, starting September 3, Jahaanara airs at 9pm and Mukhosher Arale airs at 9:30pm every Monday to Friday only on COLORS Bangla
