Star Jalsha to telecast “Durgotinashini Durga”
On this most auspicious occasion of Navratri, every year Star Jalsha, a Bengali entertainment channel of Star Group showcases Maa Durga’s story through different innovative themes. In the last 3 years the name has been Akaalbodhan (2015), Abhayamangal (2016), Jagat Janani Durga (2017). This year, Star Jalsha ushers in Devipokkho for its viewers in yet another glorious rendition as ‘Durgatinashini Durga’.
The tale of Mahishahsurmardini will be presented with special emphasis on ‘Devi Chandi’ and her various avatars. While the Devi is worshipped in many forms, ‘Chandi’ is the most dramatic manifestation of ‘Shakti’. She is unstoppable when she is set on punishing those who have earned her wrath through their misdemeanours. The splendid story of how the Devi defeats the Asuras is going to be a visual extravaganza and an uplifting experience for all.
The show will have an ensemble cast including some of Jalsha’s most popular artists portraying the Devi’s many forms, Neha Amandeep as Chandika, Trina Saha as Chamunda, Swastika Dutta as Mahalakkhi, Rusha Chatterjee as Devi Mahamaya and Shreenanda Shankar as Mahishasurmardini Devi Durga. Special dance sequences by Monami Ghosh and Shreetama will grace the show. The dynamic dance sequences have been choreographed by Sudarshan Chakravarty and the show has been directed by Joydeep Mukherjee.
Durgatinashini will be telecast on 8th Oct Monday at 5am followed by a repeat on 8 am. A special preview of it will be shown a day prior on 7th Oct Sunday at 2pm.
