Bangla avatars of national shows

Looks like it's the season of Bangla avatars of reality shows on national television. After Challenge Nibi Na, a show apparently inspired by Desi Girl that was aired on NDTV Imagine, being produced by Kaustuv Roy of RP Techvision and Bangla Talkies and currently being shot in a village in Bolpur, Venkatesh Films announced its forthcoming reality show on Star Jalsha, having seemingly taken inspirtaion from Iss Jungle Se Mujhe Bachao, which was aired on Sony Entertainment Television, on Facebook today.

Challenge Nibi Na will feature celebrities like Swastika Mukherjee, Arindam Sil, Rimjhim Mitra, Sohini Pal, Kanchan Mullick among others. It will engage the celebrity participants in various rustic games and tasks (incl. ploughing) for a good number of days, totally cut off from their familiar urban life.

The Venkatesh show will challenge the participants, this time it's common people, to survive 1000 hours in a jungle. Those interested can call 9062428521 to register.

It's hot on Bangla reality television now. Looking forward to more interesting bits on the shows and more.
