Debraj Bhattacharya, Avery Sinha Roy, Anujoy Chattopadhyay, Sabuj Bardhan, Saswati Sinha and more star in various roles in the KLIKK sketch comedy series titled Natok Korish Na. Produced by Shantanu Chatterjee, the series is written and directed by Soumit Deb.
"We laughed our guts out while performing. I've been fortunate to have such brilliantly talented performers as co-actors. There were even instances where during shot taking, one ended up disrupting shooting, by guffawing at co-actors' improvisations and them too, reacting to my shots. Soumit as a director is a very sorted and level-headed director who ensures a rather smooth journey. This was even more fun as an experience, with old friends and the fact that this had a proscenium theatre orientation and felt like performing in front of a full house audience. KLIKK has always been a forerunner at experimenting with formats of storytelling, we hope this will be thoroughly entertaining fare too," said Avery Sinha Roy.

"When KLIKK proposed this format, I was very intrigued to create this comedy sketch series. We've used contemporary canned laugh tools too and the narratives have been light-heartedly structured based on what we see around our diurnal lives. It's experimental in nature and we hope to keep the audience engrossed in good humour," said Soumit Deb.
"It was different and interesting as this was my first time working on a comedy sketch. The best part is the cast and of course the captain of the ship, the director, Soumit Deb. This team was seen before as well together in Vinchi Bharati Academy and now in a completely different dynamic. I remember once we were rehearsing and I took the initiative of rehearsing again with the cast, but the funniest part was, I was the one who forgot my lines! Soon after we started rehearsing," said Saswati Sinha.

"I have played several characters in these sketches. All of them are well drawn out, written and structured," said Debraj Bhattacharya.
"We have always tried to present interesting and compelling formats of storytelling. KLIKK pioneered the mini-series form too which broadened the scope of new storytellers to bring forth their fare. With this hilarious comedy sketch series, we hope to create a new popular horizon of entertainment," said Niraj Tantiya, director, KLIKK.
