Colors Bangla has announced the launch of its new show Aloy Bhubon Bhora, which will depict the struggles of an acid attack survivor. It is an attempt to bring about a change inspired by true events.
Starting May 14, the channel will portray the journey of Shruti, who falls prey to the unchecked heinous act of an acid attack. Shruti (played by Roshni Bhattacharya) is a charming and bubbly girl who aspires to be a singer. But on the eve of her wedding, Shruti is victim to an acid attack by an unknown assailant. Maimed by not only the physical pain inflicted by the attack but also the emotional wrenching, Shruti’s spirit has been defeated. Finding inspiration from the zeal and determination of other victims, Shruti begins to pick up the pieces of her life and starts her journey of rediscovering herself despite all the adversities.
Rahul Chakravarti, Business Head, Colors Bangla and Colors Odia, said, “As a society, we are at a very delicate juncture, with more and more sinister crimes being committed, and the public attention to these acts being short-lived. At Colors Bangla, we have decided to get the blinders off and focus the spotlight on one such grave misdeed that needs to be dealt with swiftly and rightly. Through Shruti, our protagonist in Aloy Bhubon Bhora, we narrate a story that needs to be heard by all of an innocent girl that becomes victim to an unchecked crime, yet finds a way to survive and thrive. We are certain that the show will not only engage with viewers but also rouse consciousness in them.”
The show is produced by Surinder Films.
