Kolkata,August 01, 2015 (Washington Bangla Radio): It was a dual celebration for director Reshmi Mitra as she celebrated her birthday with the announcement of her upcoming directorial venture, co-incidentally titled ‘Janmodin’.

Reshmi said on the occasion, “It’s a very special birthday for me as I am being able to celebrate my work this birthday by announcing such a special project.”
About the movie she said, “It’s a political thriller where birthdays of the characters play significant elements in the plot. Thrice a birthday has come up in the plot and never it could be celebrated for some reason or other. Even a death happens in one of the birthdays. So the title of this movie is ‘Janmodin’ (Birthday). Taurus zodiac sign is the common link in every birthday. I cannot divulge much about the plot right now but I can say that the plot is about the murder of a famous theatre artist. “
