Subhrajit Mitra’s Devi Chowdhurani went through several ups and downs. In fact, there were many speculations about the film. Some people said that the shooting would never start. However, glimpses of preparations were released before. Srabanti Chatterjee was seen taking training in horse riding and sword fighting. Still, there were rumors that the shooting was stalled. However, the shooting has already started at a set in North Kolkata.
Srabanti, Sabyasachi Chakraborty, and Darshana Banik were present in the shooting. Subhrajit told Anandabazar Online, “I feel wonderful. Those who wished said many things. I don't want to pay attention to them. It is good that the shooting has started. Almost all the actors are there. I want to do it well.” Srabanti Chatterjee plays Devi Chowdhurani and Prosenjit Chatterjee plays Bhabani Pathak. Bibriti Chatterjee and Arjun Chakraborty are playing other roles.

Action directors are coming from different parts of the country for the action sequences in the film. Some people said it would be a remake of the South Indian films. Subhrajit defended the film and said, “This will not be a remake. It will not be something like RRR. The film is based on lots of research. The training will follow Dhanurbed Sanhita. British and Mughal rulers destroyed the Indian martial arts. I will bring it back in my film. The world-famous director Kurosawa is my inspiration.”
Subhrajit posted the shooting's photo with clapstick. He wrote in the caption, “The battle started.” The team will go to Purulia on January 28. The majority of the shooting will take place there.
