Calcutta, May 22, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) ‘Fair & Lovely Challenge Nibi Na’ is a very kind of new which is going to change the face of Bengali television history and especially when it comes to reality shows.

16 celebrities, most of them well known television cum film artistes would fight for survival more so against rather than anything else in the sunburnt fields of Bolpur in rural Bengal. The group will perform a range of tasks starting from milking a cow, catching fish to Kabaddi, playing a mud game called Kumir Danga etc.

Kanchan and Kaushik will not only play the role of anchors, but they will also assign the tasks to the group. A 5-member bench comprising of a headmaster, bank manager, baul, student and a sculptor would monitor them throughout.

Just like other shows, each contestant would give ‘Chhobol’ or vote their fellow contestants out for elimination. The judges will try and save a contestant if they feel he/she needs to be saved with their power known as ‘Bishohori’. The show will get exciting and things will get really heated up between the contestants and bring out their real sides before us.

The show has been produced by R.P.Techvision and the creative director cum DOP is Samiran Dutta.

The show will go on air from 1st June, 2011 and will be aired every Wednesday to Saturday between 9 pm to 10 pm on ETV Bangla.

We are all familiar with the name of Ipshita Roy Chakraverti who is famous for her paranormal activities and her research and belief for a different world continues. She has declared herself as a Wiccan witch and her name is associated with things like black magic, voodoo, sorcery etc. She will be seen in a completely new avatar on Indian television where different stories will be shown each night all bordering on the areas with which Ipshita is associated and the biggest surprise: she will be playing herself!

The very story is called ‘Trapped’ and the show called ‘Ipshita Ebong’ will be aired on ETV Bangla from 10 pm onwards from every Monday to Saturday very soon! Watch out!
