Fight of the fittest

Riding high on the TRP-topper Gaaner Oparey, Prosenjit is now throwing his weight behind Takkar, a reality show that will take off soon on Rupashi Bangla.

“We tried our hand at an off-beat show like Gaaner Oparey (on STAR Jalsha) and it worked wonderfully. If we can find new themes, there is an audience out there to appreciate it, and Takkar is going to be no exception,” said Prosenjit, who is producing the show, on the sets in Madhyamgram.

The format of Takkar is similar to the Colors show India’s Got Talent but it has been reworked with new themes. Actors Kamalika, Prasun and Priya Karfa will mentor the 48 participants who have been split into three groups. Debleena Dutt and Rony anchor the show.

Music and dance apart, Takkar will give the contestants a chance to showcase traditional performing arts, including martial arts and weapon dances. “I have been to various parts of Bengal for my shoots and have met many people with diverse talents. But our team made the effort to go deep into the interiors of Bengal and pick the participants,” said Prosenjit.

TV star Mouli Ganguly and Chiranjit are the two judges. “We needed a senior professional and Chiranjit fit the bill. Mouli is perceptive and I think they make a lovely pair!” added the Tolly hero.
