Reality show to make start-up dreams come true in Bengal

After playing detective Byomkesh Bakshi in a Bengali silver screen adaptation this year, actor Jisshu Sengupta, who was seen opposite Deepika Padukone in Piku, will be searching for start-ups in a TV reality show.

The West Bengal government has tied up with the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta, to launch a reality show, Egiye Bangla (Forward Bengal), to promote start-ups in the state. The show will be aired on the Zee Bangla channel.
