Video: Arani Tokhon press conference
To mark the launch of the upcoming Bengali film Arani Tokhon in Kolkata, a press meet was organized in Kolkata. The press meet was attended by director Sourav Chakraborty, Paoli Dam, Prateik Babbar, Anupam Roy and others.
To mark the launch of the movie, the cast and crew associated with the film dropped their title from the Twitter handle. This means that Paoli Dam will be Paoli, Prateik Babbar will be Prateik and so on.
“The fact is that the surname of an individual indicates our caste and religion and leads to many troubles. Hence we have thought of dropping the titles as a way of promoting the film and also spreading love among the people all over the world” said Sourav Chakraborty.
Arani Tokhon is Prateik Babbar’s first Bengali film. The actor promised that he will be learning the language. The actor stated that the story of the film grasped his attention and that is why he said yes to the film. “The characters are so sensitive and emotional. That appealed to me very much. My parents have also acted in Bengali films. Hence I also wanted to act in a film and this film is very close to my heart” said the actor.
The story of the film is set between the Babri Masjid demolition (6th December, 1992) and Godhra incident, Gujarat (28th February, 2002). It shows the lives of a few characters during this troubled period. The film highlights how the major events affect the lives of the common people in the society.
The film is eyeing for release on 9th June.
