Indian cricket icon Sourav Ganguly is all set for his next innings in 'Dadagiri Unlimited Season 7', the popular Bengali reality show running for years.

"I was not connected to this world. I am a person who belongs to the playground. But yet I became part of this world and feel lucky to have come across so many people in each episode," Sourav, who had debuted in 2009 hosting a reality show host 'Dadagiri', in a regional TV channel, told reporters here.

"The journey has been enriching and interacting with so many people who have been remarkably candid and simple, became an eye-opener for me … Meeting people of different types and characteristics, knowing their own tales as a show host make you a different person," he said.

About the new tagline of the show 'Bangla Ebar Khelbe Hridoy Diye' (Bengal will play with heart this time), Sourav said "Apart from brains and technique, we also need heart and emotions in a game. You have to see my episodes to see how we have made the treatment this time." 

There will be 69 episodes in this season which will begin from June 10 and will be telecast on Saturdays and Sundays at 9.30 pm.

Sourav, popularly known as Dada, expressed happiness on the new format in which all the districts, including newly created ones, will be represented as well as participants from other states in another group, interestingly named 'Team India.
