Abir Chatterjee and Ritabhari Chakraborty wished their fans a happy Holi. They colored social media with love and best wishes on Tuesday as they announced the release date of their upcoming film, Fatafati. Their chemistry is eye-catching. 

The video shows Abir smearing gulal on Ritabhari’s cheek and she, in return, brushes her cheek with his to smear him with colour. It portrays a couple deeply in love with each other. Their new film Fatafati is getting released on May 12. Abir and Ritabhari are paired for the first time opposite each other in this film. Directed by Aritra Mukherjee, the film is produced by Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy’s Windows Production. The director duo will also present the film. 

The film tells a story of a plus-size model. Earlier, Ritabhari shared the teaser on International Women’s Day in 2022 and wrote, “This is a story of a plus-size model. My next film, the name is Fatafati. Let us break the stereotypes around us that dictate how a woman's figure should be.” Ritabhari once said in an interview, “Previously, it was said that a heroine should be beautiful like a fairy. Hopefully, we could break this stereotype using social media. I am trying to do bold movies that talk about body positivity and challenge social constructs. People saw my increased weight after the surgeries. I did not try to cover it. Perhaps many people identified themselves with me. Hence they loved me so much. I am happy.”

Ritabhari had two consecutive surgeries in 2020. She could not do exercises or follow the right diet at that time. Hence her weight increased. She was trolled for this on social media. However, she never paid attention to those dirty comments. 

Meanwhile, Abir will be seen opposite Mimi Chakraborty in Shiboprosad and Nandita’s upcoming film. The yet-untitled film is said to be an action thriller. Recently, the production house announced the news.
