According to, Mr. Prosenjit Chatterjee, Producer of ANL said: “Aloukik Na Loukik is an extremely unique show. Every weekend there will be a different story where the protagonist and his friends will explore and unravel the science behind the supernatural. I believe that there is a scientific explanation behind every supernatural occurrence but many use them to take undue advantage of others. In this show, we will see the protagonist and his team delving deep into every case and unmask those who use people’s vulnerability and faith to dupe innocents. The concept of this show is not like daily soaps, it is very different. It is extremely challenging for us as a production house to fictionalize events that have happened in real life. I am thankful to Star Jalsha for giving us the opportunity to showcase something so interesting and intriguing. My association with the channel has been since its inception. For over 10 years, Jalsha has striven to present thought provoking yet entertainment stories. It has revolutionized the Bengali GEC and challenged stereotypes with “Chalo Paltai”. Together we have created ‘Ganer Opare’- one of the biggest endeavors on Bengali GEC. We hope to create many such monumental moments in the coming years as well.”
Speaking on the occasion, Sagnik Ghosh, EVP & Channel Head, Star Jalsha & Jalsha Movies said, “The tastes and preferences of Bengali audience are constantly evolving. Aloukik Na Loukik is an endeavor from Star Jalsha to cater to these changing preferences. It is in line with our philosophy of ‘Chalo Paltai’. Mirroring this spirit of change, the show will focus on questioning what is otherwise considered to be a norm or a blind faith. We hope that the audience enjoys this quest in search of truth and logic.”
Armed with a gripping story line and a stellar cast, the show is all set to take the viewers on an intriguing and exciting quest.
The gripping title track has been created by ace music composer Indraadip Dasgupta, the lyrics have been written by Srijato Bandopadhyay and sung by the popular singer Rupankar Bagchi.
