Keeping in mind this popularity, Bengali channel Sony Aath has come up with a series on the jester Gopal Bhar. This series will be launched in the kid’s animation slot titled Sunday Funday.
Gopal Bhar was a legendary court jester in the court of Raja Krishnachandra. Raja Krishnachandra was the famous king of Nadia in the 18th century AD. His wit and intelligence was so much that he was considered to be one of the Navratna in the court of the king. His statue can still be seen in Raja Krishnachandra’s palace. His stories are still told to children across Bengal. These stories are humorous, short yet beautiful with a message in them. Gopal Bhar is famous for his stories in which he outwits his fellow courtiers.
The show will premiere on Sunday, 8th March at 10.30 am on Sony Aath. The two hour weekly slot will now showcase this legendary character and his stories.
This new series will surely appeal to the young kids but also to their families too who have grown up listening to the story of the jester.
