Former Indian Cricket captain Sourav Ganguly has made sure that he does not keep his fans sulking about his absence from the field. He has been hosting a popular Bangla quiz show Dadagiri Unlimited since 2009 on Zee Bangla. Now dada has added some more variety to his repertoire. He is now part of a Bangla television drama titled Bokul Kotha. The episodes of the show have already been aired.
Lead female actor Ushasi Ray of the show could not contain her excitement about sharing screen space with the legendary cricketer. In a recent interview to a leading daily, she said, “I can’t explain how good dada is. I was very nervous by the thoughts that I have to share the screen with a global personality. But he is very jolly. While shooting he asked me about my residence, my studies and a lot of things. My nervousness went away when I was talking to him.”
Sourav’s presence in Bokul Kotha drew a lot of eyeballs. Dadagiri Unlimited, that featured some of the most prominent names such as Shah Rukh Khan, Vidya Balan and Sachin Tendulkar, is one of the most-watched Bengali television shows. Apart from television, dada is also a regular at the commentary box. But we are not complaining. After all, there is nothing as too much of dada.
