After Swastika Mukherjee alleged sexual harassment against the producer of the film Shibpur, the release of the film got postponed. After more than a month, Swastika and Parambrata Chatterjee’s Shibpur will finally release on June 30. Four years after Srijit Mukherji, the actor, and actress will be seen together.
Based on real-life events, the film delves into the 1980s Shibpur – a locality in Howrah that is a stone's throw away from the heart of Kolkata. Shibpur used to be infamous for rampant criminal activities. During that period, chief minister Jyoti Basu appointed a strong IPS officer to control the law and order situation.
In the film, Parambrata will be seen as an IPS officer and Swastika will be seen as a woman who rose from an ordinary housewife to a notorious lady mafia gang leader. Directed by Arindam Bhattacharya, the film also features Mamata Shankar, Rajatava Dutta, Kharaj Mukherjee, and Sujan Neel Mukhopadhyay.
In April, Swastika brought a series of serious allegations against the film’s co-producer Sandeep Sarkar of Indo-Americana Production. The actress alleged that she received threatening emails from the co-producers. Furthermore, she added that she received threats from the associates of the co-producers, who were said to have morphed her images and threatened to share the photos on pornography websites. Swastika lodged a complaint at Golf Green Police Station in March. Besides, she also complained to Eastern India Motion Pictures Association (EIMPA), along with scanned copies of threat mails. After her allegation, Sandeep Sarkar’s name has been removed from the producer’s credit line by EIMPA.
