The trailer of the much talked about film Rajkahini was released during the premiere show of Churni Ganguly’s debut film Nirbashito. The event took place at Priya Cinemas.
Present at the trailer launch event were director Srijit Mukherji, Rituparna Sengupta, Sohini Sarkar, Sayoni Ghosh, Abir Chatterjee, Saswata Chatterjee, Rudranil Ghosh, Srijato, Ridhima Ghosh, Kaushik Ganguly, Srijato, Koushik Sen, Barun Chanda and a host of other Tollywod celebrities who came to extend their support for this soon to release film.
Directed by Srijit Mukherji, Rajkahini deals with the sub-altering history of India-Bangladesh partition. The film deals with that part of history which does not consist of important meetings and agreements or politicians of the Indian National Congress and Muslim League, but of the common people and the marginalized section of the society who bore the brunt of the tragedy.
The film’s background represents the temporal border between two nations, as it led to the birth of India and (east) Pakistan.
Speaking at the occasion, director Srijit Mukherji said “I had actually thought of releasing the film today. But my accident prevented me from doing so. The next best alternative that I could think of was releasing the trailer of the film and here I am with the trailer of my next directorial venture”.
Srijit Mukherji’s Rajkahini boasts of a stellar cast comprising of Abir Chatterjee, Saswata Chatterjee, Rituparna Sengupta, Parno Mitra, Sayoni Ghosh, Sohini Sarkar, Koushik Sen and many others.
Rajkahini is slated for release during the Pujas.
