The new episode casts popular cartoonist Morshed Mishu, Syeda Taslima Hossain Nodi,Pranay Deb Ucchash, Towfiqul Emon, Gitashree Chakraborty, among others. Morshed Mishu, also playing a cartoonist’s character said,” I am feeling nervous as well as excited as this is my first time acting in front of a camera. It feels like the first time my cartoon was published in Unmad magazine.”
“Then I got dumbstruck seeing my name beside senior cartoonists and now I am dumbstruck seeing my name beside actors like Afzal Hossain, Chanchal Chowdhury, and Nowshaba Ahmed,” he added.
When asked why he named the series Pett kata Shaw, Nuhash said, "We all call Murdhanya Shaw as pett kata shaw since childhood. As soon as one learns Bengali language, he recognizes this letter as petkata shaw though no Bengali book mentions it in this name”.
He said it’s a very ghostly strange name. “Somehow it has become very familiar from generation to generation through folklore just like these ghost stories. Those were also not written anywhere but word of mouth has spread them through generations. So finally, I wanted to call Petkata Shaw as Pett Kata Shaw and to bring ghost stories together in a modern way,” said Nuhash.
