Kolkata, Jan 4 (Washington Bangla Radio) - Indo-Bangladeshi joint venture in the Bengali film industry seems to be the call of the time as most of  the Bengali films, on both sides of the border, failing to see any commercial success.

"Hero 420" ( হিরো চারশো বিশ) is another such venture where Kolkata based director Sujit Mondal and Bangladeshi director Saikat Nasir have joined hands to co-direct the film.


"Hero 420" is the remake of the Telegu super-hit movie "Maska" (2009) which was directed by B. Gopal and had Ram Pothineni, Hanshika Motwani and Sheela Kaur as the lead stars.

Tollywood actor Om will get into the skin of the character Krish, which is the equivalent to Ram’s role of the same name in the Telegu original. Bangladeshi actress Nusrat Faria Mazhar and Indian actress Riya Sen will be seen playing the two female leads in the new Bengali movie.

Nusrat Faria Mazhar previously had acted in the movie “Aashiqui” opposite Kolkata based actor Ankush Hazra which was also a joint venture of two production houses from both the sides of  Bengal. In the film which ran for a considerable period in the theaters, the Bangladeshi actress grabbed the eyeballs of the Indian audience so much that she has even bagged the lead in Bollywood movie GAWAH - The Witness with Emraan Hashmi and was in the news recently for shooting a kissing scene with "serial kisser" Hashmi.
