Sourav Ganguly asked Manashi Mukherjee to sing a song. Manashi herself had many music records to her credit. She sang her father’s song “bare bare ke jeno dake amare”. She said her father had great relationship with not only singers like Shyamal Mitra, Hemanta Mukherjee or Aparesh Lahiri, the father of Bappi Lahiri, but the entire film fraternity including actors like Tarun Kumar, Bhanu Banerjee. Sourav Ganguly asked how was Bhanu Banerjee back at home. Basabi Mukherjee, the daughter of Bhanu Banerjee said that he was a very serious father back at home. She told a Dhaka comedy tale to Sourav Ganguly. She acted in films like Nirdharito Shilpir Anuposthitite, Atithi, etc. She said her father did a lot of social work. Tarun Kumar’s daughter was asked what was the name of the national award for best actor which was started in 1967. She said the right answer and also mentioned that Bengali superstar Uttam Kumar received that award. She also said that Uttam Kumar and Tarun Kumar lived together in the same house in Bhawanipur, where she spend her childhood. Bablu Mukherjee, the son of Keshto Mukherjee told an incident in a flight. Keshto Mukherjee had a famous dialogue “pacchis”. Passengers in the flight wanted him to say it again. He acted about vomiting and when the plastic bag was given he told the passengers “chabbis”. He had huge wit. Bappa Lahiri said he was a drummer. He learned table from the same guru who taught Bappi Lahiri table. He told an incident when Sourav Ganguly was playing in England, Bappi Lahiri and Bappa Lahiri went for a show there. Bappi Lahiri could find time only at night and took Bappa Lahiri with him to meet Sourav Ganguly in the dressing room. Such was the Bengali sentiment of Bappi Lahiri. He also said his family and Mithun Chakravarty’s family are very close. Shakti Chatterjee’s son said that in addition to being a great poet and writer, his father was also a social worker. Whatever money that he saved in a LIC Policy, when the policy matured he gave the money to a rickshaw puller in his locality just because he had written few poems and was interested in literature. At the end of the show Bappa Lahiri gave the maximum number of right answers and became champion. Sourav Ganguly handled the celebrity children with respect and dignity.
