I laugh U, Season 3 Promises Sumptuous Doses of Fun and Entertainment


Dressed as a ghost and an alien, two actors can be seen hosting the third season of I Laugh U. On closer scrutiny one understands that the two actors are Kanchan Mullick as the Ghost and Rudranil Ghosh as the alien. The fifth episode (the theme of the episode was Ashare Goppo) shooting of this upcoming non-fiction series was going on at Bharat Laxmi Studios.


I Laugh U in its third season will be carrying forward the legacy set up in the first two seasons. Twelve known and popular comedians create pairs and perform on the given themes. The pairs this time consist of Dipanshu Acharya- Pradip Dhar, Atanu Barman- Pinky, Ambarish- Saurav, Saurav Chatterjee- Joyeeta Goswami, Sayani Ghosh-Daminee Benny Basu and Titas Bhowmick-Manasi.


The judges of this season are Saswata Chatterjee, Indrani Halder and Chiranjeet. Speaking at the occasion, Saswata Chatterjee said (in his usual humorous style) “With so much heat outside, it is very hard to shoot outside. When I was offered the chance to act as the judge, I thought why not? I can sit in an air-conditioned studio and will have to just say good or bad. Moreover this is a comedy show and I will be reducing the stress too”.


In a blue sari, actress Indrani Halder cast a pretty picture on the sets. “I am having a great time on the sets. Raj is a perfectionist and Kanchan and Rudra are not only great anchors, but equally good mentors and actors. My fellow judges are also keeping up the comic quotient high and we three have been cracking jokes often in between shoots. We are all stressed out in our day to day activities. Judging a show like this helps in decreasing stress.”


The actress also added that if there will be more seasons, she will also like to act as the judge in the show. “I had missed the earlier two seasons as I was out of the city then. But the fair judgment style with the director giving us the full freedom to state our opinion is what is making the stint as the judge of this show so appealing” said the actress.

Director Raj Chakraborty said “There will be new things happening in the show, which will add to its charm. I will not reveal much now about it. The highest scoring contestants in each episode will get prize money of one lakh rupees. Moreover the judges have been selected as they are some of the best actors in the industry. With their years of experience, their judgment is something which no one will question”.

I Laugh U (produced by Shree Venkatesh Films) will be aired every Sunday from 31st May from 9pm onwards on Star Jalsa.

“Swastika Mukherjee Can Do Justice to Any Role”, says Anubrato Bhalo Acho Director Partha Sen; Film’s Trailer and First Look Launched

Bengali Film Anubrato Bhalo Acho Trailer and First look Launch

Partha Sen’s upcoming Bengali film Anubrato Bhalo Acho’s trailer and first look launch was done at Hyatt Regency. Saswata Chatterjee, Srijit Mukherjee, Deboleena Dutta, Ritwick Chakraborty, Neel Mukherjee, Anindya Chattopadhyay, Swastika Mukherjee, Suman Mukhopadhyay, Partha Sen, Chiranjeet and others graced the occasion. The first look and trailer was unveiled by Chiranjeet.


“I have worked with Partha da at the beginning of my career. I used to be scolded a lot at those times. I am working with him after such a long time. It feels great. I was surprised as to why was I selected for the role of a lady in her mid-forties by Partha da. However I also know that the actresses in that age group will not like to portray such characters. Hence I consider myself lucky that I have been selected as this will open up more scope of work for me” said Swastika with a smile.


Actress Swastika Mukherjee plays the role of a middle aged housewife who develops a bond with the character played by Ritwick at a chance meeting in a hospital. The actress will be seen sporting salt ‘n’ pepper hair in the film. The actress was also visibly excited to be starring opposite Ritwick whom she hailed as her favorite actor.


Speaking at the occasion Director Partha Sen highlighted on the fact that many people initially showed their interest after listening to the concept of the film. However none of them came forward and helped him in the making of the film. “I am thankful to many people who have actually showed the courage and helped me in the making of this film. I will like to mention my family who had have given me the courage to go on with the job at hand” said the director. The director whose very first choice for the film was actress Swastika Mukherjee has also been heard saying time and again that it is Swastika who can do complete justice to any role and even a character in her mid-forties can come alive and remain etched inthe memories of the audience if it is Swastika playing the role. Aslo, though it was not Ritwick Chakraborty but Saswata or Kaushik Sen as the director’s first preference for the male lead, Ritwick turned out to be a revelation and the director is quite contended with the way the movie has shaped up.


The music of this film has been scored by Mayookh Bhaumik and the DoP is none other than the magic maker Soumik Halder and the editing has been done by Pranoy Dasgupta.
