MP Satabdi Roy stormed Zee Bangla Mirakkel Program.
MP Satabdi Roy stormed Zee Bangla Mirakkel Program on 30th April, 2012. She had been a successful Bengali actress of Bengali films of 1980s and 1990s.
When Mir Afsar Ali asked what had been the transformation of Bengali films during her times, that is the 80s and Bengali film today. She said the producers had started spending a lot of money in Bengali films. It did not happen during her time. At that time films were shot in Phalta and other locations close to Kolkata. If there used to be an outdoor shooting which was very far, then the shooting used to take place in Siliguri. These days are shot in Paris, Rome, Athens, etc., so the films of Jeet and Dev are expensive films which are shot in foreign countries. There had been lot of development in Bengali films.
Satabdi Roy read out a poetry of her own. She had been writing poetry for the last 20 years which are published in many places. She recited the poetry based on the life of a girl in Bengal. The performers Sangeet Tiwary, Palash Adhikari, Abu Henna Ronnie and others played their characters very well.
Mir asked Satabdi Roy to bring Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in his show. Inspite of the busy schedule of Satabdi Roy she said she watched Mirakkel whenever she had to go to New Delhi. She could recognize the participants and told everyone about their speciality. She also said that judge Rajatavo Dutta was her first hero in Bengali films.
