Shot entirely in London, the show along with Parambrata stars Payel Sarkar, Riddhi Sen, Soumya Sengupta, Surangana Bandyopadhyay, Kanchan Mallik, Joydeep Mukherjee, and Bidipta Chakraborty.
Parambrata Chattopadhyay, who has previously produced Kaali, Zee5’s first Bengali Original web series, in a statement said that Sharate Aaj is the story of identity crisis, cultural bonding and a terror threat, making the show an edge-of-the-seat thriller. The show will showcase the vibrant Bengali culture present in the city of London.

“We have seen a steady increase in the user engagement for Zee5 across regions. West Bengal is one of the key focus markets for us and we have received a phenomenal response to our Bengali Originals – Aranyadeb and Kaali and the exhaustive original content repertoire dubbed in Bengali. Sharate Aaj is one of our marquee shows with a gripping narrative and supported by noted actors. The cultural significance and sensibilities explored with Durga Puja and Rabindra sangeet will also catch the attention of the audience,” said Manish Aggarwal, Business Head, Zee5 India, reportedly.
