Video: Trailer of Srijit Mukherji’s Uma Released
The trailer of Uma was released at Shobhabazaar Rajbari in the presence of the cast and crew of the film.
The ambience was of a traditional ‘zamindar’ house Durga Puja. The guests were welcomed by ‘diya – tika’ and conch shells, while Birendra Krishna Bhadra’s Mahalaya song resonated in the background. Dhaki players and female Dhunuchi dancers amplified the atmosphere with their performance while people enjoyed the delectable ‘Puja Bhog’.
This was followed by director Srijit Mukherji unveiling the trailer in the presence of Jisshu U Sengupta, Sara Sengupta, Sayantika Banerjee, Rudranil Ghosh, Anirban Bhattacharya, Neel Dutt, Nilanjana and others.
The film is inspired from the true story of Evan Leversage, the Canadian boy suffering from cancer and for whom his village of St. George, Ontario came together to celebrate Christmas much ahead of the actual festival.
Srijit Mukherji said “I am extremely proud of the way that Sara has acted in this film. When I approached her parents for doing this film, they rejected me instantly. It was later that Sara asked me to tell the story and after listening to the story, she agreed to do the film. The way that she has acted is phenomenal”.
Sayantika Banerjee who worked for the first time with the director mentioned that she was initially happy to have bagged the role. But later on she was having second thoughts as to how she will act opposite such talented actors in the film. She however followed the director’s guidance and did the acting in the film.
Jisshu Sengupta looked every bit the proud father at the event whenever anyone praised her daughter. “I am so proud of my daughter. This film is special as this is Sara’s first film and the content is also so unique” added the actor.
The film is scheduled to release on 1st of June, 2018.
