The leading pair even took a metro ride and appeared on a popular TV game show to celebrate the launch of the music album of the film, composed by Nilayan Chatterjee.

Kishmish is already winning hearts and applause among the fans with its exciting 2D animations and a fresh storyline. It promises to deliver the beguiling yet enchanting effects of romance and longing between two people. The trailer, which was released recently, shows Dev and Rukmini in four different characters from different timelines from age 18-to 45 years.

Incidentally, Dev’s last year’s release Tonic created new history at the box office and it brought back the Bengali cinema-goers into the theatres. The film is declared an ‘All-time blockbuster’ at the box office and the second highest-grossing film of 2021 in Bengali cinema. And the fans are eagerly waiting for yet another surprise.

Meanwhile, Kamaleshwar Mukherjee who directed Password, the last movie of Dev and Rukmini, will be essaying the role of Rukmini’s onscreen parents along with and June Maliah.
