BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: This year, Mirakkel Season 10 was in the headlines much before it hit the TV screens. The old set of judges on this popular Bengali comedy show — Paran Bandopadhyay, Rajatava Dutta and Sreelekha Mitra — was replaced by Kanchan Mullick, Paoli Dam, Sayantika Banerjee and Biswanath Basu. The controversy erupted when Sreelekha took to social media to share that she was dropped from the show without being told. Then, she also went live on her YouTube to mention that she would never again return to the show even if called back. Now, Rajatava Dutta is one of the judges on a new comedy show – Hashiwala & Company on the rival channel Star Jalsha.
Moving on, the Season 10 is here now. And there’s fascinating Mir hosting the show as ever. Good news is Mirrakel is back after a gap of four years on Zee Bangla and that, too, at a time when the audience needs a bit of laughter in their life given the pandemic situation we all are in.
Mirakkel Season 10 has handpicked 28 participants for almost a period of 18 months. Their mantra for this season: Bhalo thakar vaccine and to cheer up those watching the show.
For the first time, the audition round in Mirakkel has been introduced where the selected 28 participants will be up on stage, performing to an audience to watch, as the judges pick out 14 of the – crème de la crème of comedy to move into the next round.
Apart from Kanchan, Paoli, Sayantika and Biswanath judging the performers, we will also see actors Soham Chakraborty and Rudranil Ghosh joining the team of judges in the later rounds.
And then, Mir and his band ‘Bandage’ will also be there.
“In this pandemic situation, we really fail to remember when did we really had a good laugh. The presence of family and familiarity are one of the key reasons, which soothes our soul and brings smile to our faces. This is where Mirakkel binds the family together and serves as a wholesome family entertainer. In the current disruptive environment, comedy as a genre has emerged out to be a clear winner and had seen a wide acceptance across larger spectrum of audiences. ZB is happy to bring 10th season of Mirakkel with the objective of entertaining the entire family with the tag line bhalo thakar vaccine,” said Samrat Ghosh, cluster head (east) Zee Entertainment.
Mirakkel is airing on Zee Bangla every Sunday.
