A new Bengali television series titled "Shyama" is set to air on the Sun Bangla channel. This series promises to bring an intriguing spiritual story to the screen, breaking away from the familiar genre. The lead roles in "Shyama" will be portrayed by actress Tumpa Ghosh and actor Honey Bafna. Apart from the main cast, "Shyama" will also bring back actress Madhubani Goswami to the television screen. The series boasts a talented ensemble cast, including Biswajit Chakraborty, Anuradha Roy, Bharat Kaul, Sudipta Banerjee, and more.
The story of "Shyama" revolves around Joy (played by Honey Bafna), a wealthy young man from the Banerjee family, headed by the renowned astrologer Bakul Banerjee (played by Bishwajit Chakraborty). Jay's character also plays the role of a fortune teller in the series. His first encounter with Aritri (played by Tumpa Ghosh) leads to love at first sight, resulting in their marriage. However, their lives take a dark turn when Jay and Aritri's past catches up with them, revealing unknown secrets that will challenge their married lives.
The series introduces other pivotal characters, such as Joy's grandmother (played by Anuradha Roy) and Joy's parents (played by Bharat Kaul and Suchismita Choudhury). Additionally, the cast includes characters like Aritri's parents, portrayed by Bodhisatta Majumdar and Mausumi Saha, and Joy's lover, played by Sudipta Banerjee.
