In the august presence of director Reshmi Mitra, Debosree Roy, J. S. Hemi, Illius Kanchan and others, the press conference of the upcoming Bengali film Hotath Dekha was organized.
Based on a poem by Rabindranath Tagore, director Reshmi Mitra’s film Hotath Dekha is the story of two characters namely Amit and Manasi.
Bangladeshi actress J. S. Hemi will be seen enacting the role of Manasi in the film. “Manasi is the typical girl next door character who is in love with her teacher. I have had a great time shooting in Kolkata. This is my first film and I am positive that the audience will love the film” said the actress.
Director Reshmi Mitra said “I had the desire to make a film on a story or a poem by Tagore. So when I was given the offer, I grasped it and opted for this story. Since this is a Bangladesh-India collaborative effort, I have shots in both India and Bangladesh for the film”.
Speaking at the occasion, Debosree Roy said “I am very busy these days and hence I have become very choosy about the films I take up. Doing a film based on a work by Rabindranath Tagore is always very fascinating and hence I said yes to doing this film”.
Raja Narayan Deb is the music composer of the film. Kartick Das Baul, Anupam Roy, Monomoy, Subhomita will be lending their voices to the songs in the film.
Debosree Roy, Kartick Das Baul, Tulika Bose, Deep Bhattacharjee, Illyus Kanchan and others will be seen in important roles in the film.
The dubbing of the film is also currently in progress and the makers want to release the film on Tagore’s birthday in 2016.
