Default 10 Reasons - Dadagiri host Sourav Ganguly rules a million hearts and more

He is a perfect blend of talent and intellect. He is a man of talent, who showed indomitable spirit, strong determination and made records in his cricket career. No wonder, he has a fan base across the globe who hold a high regard for the ace cricketer, still process his posters on the wall, or preserve newspaper cuttings on him. And off the field? He is equally popular. With innate talent, charm and electrifying personality, Sourav Ganguly proved to be a man who is loved by generations. His stint as a host is equally popular and the TV series 'Dadagiri' remains to be one of the most watched non-fiction shows on Bengali TV. As he completed his ‘half century’ in a star studded event, attended by Sachin Tendulkar, BCCI officials and many famous personalities, fans across the world are rejoicing the moment and aam Bangali couldn’t be any prouder.

​A year younger

It’s just half a century for the ace cricketer who has several records in his cricket career. There are many more years to come. His dedication for work, effort and spirit is proof that he turned a year younger. Energy always flies high when Dada is on the shooting floor. And if you still have doubt, look at his charismatic smile! (Photo: Instagram).

​Dada is more than an emotion

There is no doubt that Sourav Ganguly is more than an emotion to aam Bangali. Time and again, he proved that determination, hardwork and patience are the key to success. Be it on 22 yards or television screen, Dada simply rules it. No wonder, even those who don’t love watching television, end up sitting in front of the TV set to watch ‘Dadagiri’. (Photo: Facebook)

A ​rare combination of talent and charm

Sourav is a rare combination of charm and talent. ‘Dadagiri’ showcased his other talents. Sourav is well-read and has in-depth knowledge on many topics. Many-a-time, the host can be seen answering the questions on his own without taking a look at the cue card or engaging in a conversation with the participants. (Photo: Facebook)

​Beloved Dada

His family addresses him as Maharaj, fellow cricketers call him as Dada while Geoffrey Boycott used to call him ‘Prince of Calcutta’. And from 8-80, he is beloved Dada. Why us, ask the young participants who appear on Dadagiri who often say ‘Tumi toh Dada’! (Photo: Facebook)


There is no doubt that it is Sourav Ganguly’s Dadagiri on Bengali TV. A show that is aired only on weekends, can compete with all other daily soaps that are being aired 7 days a week. And why wouldn’t be. Dadagiri Unlimited recently completed its 9th season which was equally successful. (Photo: A still from Dadagiri 9's finale)

​Wittiness and eloquence

Sourav has a good sense of humour and he is extremely eloquent. His witty and intelligent one-liners and quick replies never let the show have a dull moment. Be it with young participants or grown-ups, Sourav can be seen at his charismatic best. From his much-talked about relationship with Greg Chappel, famous shirtless moment at Lords, or referring to ‘Madam’ (his wife Dona), Sourav keeps making witty comments on different topics during the show and that’s what makes ‘Dadagiri’ special. Once celebrity participant Sonalee Chaudhuri asked Dada to choose the starcast for the classic Hindi film 'Sholay'. The catch was, the cast should be cricketers. Dada left the participants clean bowled when he promptly replied that Virender Sehwag will be Sholay’s Veeru if he has to play Jay’s role. When asked who would play the famous Gabbar Singh, Dada quickly said, “Let Greg Chappell perform Gabbar’s job.” He also keeps talking about Dona and refers to her as ‘Madam’ while narrating his personal experience.

​A million dollar smile

From commoners to celebrities, participants on Dadagiri have always complimented Dada for his smile. In a recent episode, senior artist Debashree Roy complimented Dada’s smile which left the host all shy. (Photo: Facebook)

Screen presence

There is no doubt that Sourav has a great screen presence. Over these years, viewers have seen his different avatars. From holding a guitar, showcasing his culinary s****s on Dadagiri’s stage to shaking a leg with gorgeous actresses, Sourav was caught at its entertaining best. (Photo: Facebook)

​Remarkable inning as a host

TV viewers have seen many quiz shows that featured many eminent hosts whose eloquence and hosting s****s made the shows very popular. And years ago, when ‘Dadagiri’ was launched, not many people would have thought that it would become an iconic show. Sourav’s charming presence, instant replies and easy going nature made the ‘quiz show’ an interactive session filled with entertaining moments. (Photo: Facebook)

Winning hearts

From being a cricketer to a successful show host, Sourav kept stealing hearts be it on the field or outside. It’s just that, Dil ek he hai kitni bar jitoge! (Photo: Facebook)
