Kolkata/IBNS: Actress Sumona Chakravarti, who is also known for appearing on TV comedy show The Kapil Sharma Show (formerly Comedy Nights with Kapil), stars in Zee Zest’s new travel show , Shonar Bengal.
Chakravarti, who plays the host, sets out to explore the state of West Bengal and uncovers its lesser-known stories and experiences.
Throughout the show, she also offers viewers insight into diverse cultural destinations through literature, art, music and community, via a 10-part travelogue.
Excited to be part of this cultural adventure, Chakravarti says, “I was raised in Lucknow and Mumbai. With Zee Zest’s Shonar Bengal, it allowed me to discover my roots from a different angle. I had the chance to explore the state and unravel the stories that were part of my childhood, but from a distance, while this show gave me a chance to come closer and experience them for the first time.
“Being able to interact with people from diverse cultural backgrounds has been surreal and a great learning experience for me. The magnificent beauty of Bengal never fails to amaze me. I feel extremely honored to be a part of the show and hope that ‘with Zee Zest, we can once again UNLIMITE the experiences for viewers.”
