Durga Puja is six months away and the Bengali film industry has geared up to release the biggest titles of the year- during that time. After Dev’s Bagha Jatin, Arindam Sil’s Mitin Masi film with Koel Mallick and Shuboprosad Mukherjee, and Nandita Roy’s Roktobeej that will feature Abir Chatterjee and Mimi Chakraborty, Srijit Mukherji announced his Puja edition – a cop universe multistarrer thriller, which will feature Prosenjit Chatterjee, Jisshu U Sengupta, Subhashree Ganguly, and Anirban Bhattacharya. The film will be SVF’s Puja release.
Srijit’s new film will bring together his earlier thrillers, Baishey Srabon and Vinci Da. The new film is said to be the prequel of these two in which Prosenjit’s Prabir Roychowdhury will meet Anirban’s, Biyoy Poddar. Though Anirban plays a completely different character in the sequel of Baishe Srabon, Dwitiyo Purush. After a hiatus and alleged tiff with Jisshu, the actor is back with the director. It was reported that a distance grew between Srijit and Jisshu during Ek Je Chilo Raja. Later, Jisshu refused to work in Srijit’s Lawho Gouranger Naam Re. However, now that film will be directed by some other filmmaker.
Durga Puja is known to be the most coveted window for the film release. Srijit’s last Puja release was Prosenjit’s Gumnami in 2019. Earlier, his Yeti Obhijaan and Ek Je Chilo Raja were also released during Puja.
