Ittyadi 21 years and still going strong
A wholesome family-oriented variety show, “Ittyadi”, continues to come up with innovative ideas to convey social messages and generating awareness among the masses -- reminding them of their social responsibilities -- with a dash of entertainment.
With its latest episode, “Ittyadi” (to be aired on January 30 on BTV at 9 pm), will celebrate 21 years of successful run -- a milestone in the history of television in our country. “Ittyadi” is also the first programme to be aired on BTV under the “package programme” format.
The celebration coincides with the 400th anniversary of Dhaka City. Reasonably, this episode has been shot at the wide expanse of the Lalbagh Qilla in Old Dhaka. As always, this episode will feature issues to generate awareness.
For this episode, the “Ittyadi” team went off to far-flung areas such as Teknaf, Tetulia, Rajshahi, Nawgaon, Noakhali, Chapainawabganj and more. An altruistic nature lover, Goher Ali, 106, of Naogaon has been featured in this episode. Another segment highlights how age is never a bar to education. An unusual report involves hair trimming and slicing vegetables.
Noted folk singers Momtaz, Arif Dewan, Rustom Dewan and others will entertain the audience with their charged performances.
The grand show also includes actors Challenger, Masud Ali Khan, Fakhrul Hasan Boiragi, and others as well.
According to Fagun Audio Vision (maker of the show), each episode of “Ittyadi” is shot with utmost attention “Ittyadi” does not believe in celebrating anniversaries formally. Education, information and entertainment are the three basic concepts of the show.
