Calcutta, May 27, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) The motto for the state is change and so is the motto of Star Jalsha, the leading entertainment channel who want to further change themselves by introducing two new TV shows - Aparajito and Adwitiya which are scheduled to be telecast from 13th June.

Aparajito is about a father who has to be a mother to two small kids and marks the come-back of Jisshu on the small screen as a hero and is produced by Blue Water Pictures (Jisshu and Nilanjana’s company).
Adwitiya on the other hand talks about a young girl who goes to a village and acts as a catalyst for progress and the serial captures the forests of the Sunderbans like it has been never captured before. It does feature actors and actresses who have appeared in television shows of Star Jalsha before and is incidentally produced by Prasenjit Chatterjee, his second production venture after ‘Ganer Opare’.
All these shows have been shot in High Definition and from 15th July onwards , all shows will be shot in HD. Their ongoing serial ‘Tapur Tapur’ will also be shown in a prime time slot from Mon-Sat from 8:30 pm from 6th June.
The channel will also host the ‘STAR JALSHA ENTERTAINMENT AWARDS 2011’ which will honour the best performers in the industry and unlike the STAR PARIBAAR AWARDS; it will not be an internal affair and stick to awarding their own stars or serials, but will be general in nature. What will be special will be the performances by stars like Dev, Jeet, Subhasree, Srabanti , Koel and others and the show will be produced by Blue Water Pictures and Jisshu will be the host.
To make all these announcements, Dev, Jeet, Subhasree, Jisshu, Nilanjana, the cast and crew of Aparajito and Adwitiya were all present along with Mr.Ravish Kumar, EVP & General Manager, Star Entertainment Media Pvt Ltd and Mr.Gaurabh Banerjee, SVP Content Strategy, Star India at the Oberoi Grand at a press meet held recently.
