Only then can we create a larger audience base. We may be lacking in resources, but the zeal to position and align our content nationally alongside great is worth trying with the treasure trove of stories and the huge talent base that Bengal offers, âsaid Dhrubo.

The new season starts airing on Hoichoi from today.
âI started my journey as Satyabati in 2017 and I still can’t believe how quickly, with much love from the audience, we reached the seventh season of Byomkesh. I will always be grateful to Hoichoi for Satyabati, a character who will remain one of my personal favorites. Now I wait for our audience to watch Byomkesh 7.
