Calcutta, April 16, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) What happens when you remake a Bollywood Big B cult film with a name like ‘The Great Gambler’ in Bengali?

Does it have the story or the thrills? Is this the same film? The story isn’t going to be revealed right now, but the announcement of the making of such a film with such a name was done recently at an event organized to mark the launch of a film.

The film has primarily newcomers in the lead roles, with the cast consisting of Mainak, Shaan, Sanjukta, Sayantani, Rajatava Dutta, Biswanath Basu, Santwana Basu, George Baker, Rahul Barman and Tapas Pal. The film will be directed by Victor Amalraj Banerjee and will be produced by Madhumita Mukherjee.

The story is written by Gautam Mukherjee and music is by Bappi Lahiri. The playback singers' list is pretty impressive comprising of Javed Ali, Sunidhi Chauhan, Alka Yagnik, June Banerjee, Shaan, Swagata and newcomer Raaj among others.

The entire cast and crew including Bappi Lahiri were present at the Golden Park on 15th April (Bengali New Year’s Day) to mark the launch of this film.
