new kolkata bangla movie Majnu

Kolkata, November 22 (Washington Bangla Radio): The cast and crew of Rajib Biswas’s latest film ‘Majnu’ assembled at Astor Hotel to interact with the media.

With the very bubbly Srabanti and chocolate Hero Hiraan in the lead, the film seems to be a fresh rom-com. The film also has the very handsome Sujjoy as the second male lead. Another rarity will be seen in the credits of the film. The credits will sort three ace musicians as the music directors. They are Samidh Mukherjee, Rishi Chanda and Savvy. All of them along with script writer N.K Salil were present at the press meet.

Speaking to WBRi Hiraan said, “My last release was ‘Le halua Le’ which came out nearly 2 years back. I was looking for a good story to make a film. The search ended at Majnu. Majnu is going to be a faboulous entertainer. There are a lot of mischiefs, sweet bitter fights and fun in the film. Audience will love to watch all those.”

“Many people asked me why I was not doing any film for so long. Apart from waiting for a good story I was also busy with my album ‘Bindaas’ which I made along with my wife.” Hiraan added.

When asked about the reason behind the change of the film’s title from ‘Thakur Jamai elo barite’ to ‘Majnu’ Hiraan said. “The film was first slated to be released at ‘Jamai Soshti’ and thus it was initially titled as ‘Thakur Jamai elo Barite’ to make it more catchy on the occasion. But when the film was postponed the title was not so effective and thus we changed it to Majnu.”

Srabanti glammed up the event was she looked pretty in a trendy top which had a artistically monster on it. Srabanti too looked very excited about the film. “Rajib is at his prime as a director. He has churned out another wonderful movie with Majnu. I play Megha in this movie that falls for Avik (Hiraan) inspite of being her engagement to Arun (Sujjoy). You have to watch the movie to know the rest.” Srabanti said.

Srabanti also mentioned that she is currently shooting for Anirudha Roy Chowdhury’s ‘Buno haansh’ with Dev as her co-star. “I will be seen in a very different look in the film and I am very excited about that.” She said.

Sujjoy who plays the fiancé of Srabanti in the film said that he is honoured to work in such a film which is being produced under the banner of Sree Venkatesh films and have such a formidable star cast. He also mentioned that he is looking forward to his role in ‘Arundhuti’ where he has been paired with Koel Mallik.
