Five thousand episodes. Yes, that’s how far Sudipa Chatterjee-hosted Rannaghar on Zee Bangla has come. The Bengali cookery, which has been running for the last 17 years, will soon complete 5000 episodes.
At a time when a daily soap struggles to keep afloat, Rannaghar has managed to steadily cross 5,000 episodes with the love of the audiences. Recently, the cast and crew of the hit show shot a special episode to celebrate this achievement. The special episode, which will be telecast on October 1 and October 2 will feature Sonali Chowdhury, Sreetama, Sinjhini Chakraborty and Sreeparna Roy.
Remembering the humble days of beginning, Sudipa recalled how in the initial days they had to bring their own utensils from home on the floor. From a small makeup room, today they have an AC floor.
Of course, Sudipa took a small break when she was pregnant with her baby boy. At that time, actress Aparajita Auddy was the host.
