Dupur Thakurpo is one of the few adult comedies on the streaming platforms currently. The Bengali web series launched six months ago on the Hoichoi channel and has been a mainstay there since a while. The second season of the series sees Bigg Boss fame actress Monalisa play Jhuma Boudi. In the earlier season, Swastika Mukherjee played the Boudi character in the web series.
It makes sense to rope in Monalisa for the role. She has a Bigg Boss tenure going for her, along with Nach Baliye and the Bhojpuri films that she has done. She will also bring the Bong connect to the series. Mona Lisa is a Bengali and her name is Antara Biswas. She said that while she regularly visits Kolkata, this is the first time that she will be coming to Kolkota for work.
The Hoichoi channel has been quite successful and brought several web series that are India centric and are quite entertaining. They also have a web series that talks about the most loved Bong character, Byomkesh Bakshi.
