The poster of Srijit Mukherjee‘s next movie Ek Je Chilo Raja has been launched. But after that launch, no one had anticipated that it will create such astonishing bumble among the Bengali cine-lovers. The film is based on the Bhawal Sanyasi case and the director is mainly depending on the book A Princely Impostor written by Partha Chatterjee for the movie. A movie on the same topic had been made before in 1975 with the name Sannasi Raja and Mahanayak Uttam Kumar was in the lead cast.
The story about Bhawal Raja mainly revolves around a court room case where he cames before all 12 years after his declaration of death and claimed his property. The role of the Raja will be essayed out by Jisshu Sengupta while his wife’s role will be portrayed by Rajnandini Dutta who is the daughter of actress Indrani Dutta. The role of the Zamindar’s sister will be played by Jaya Ahsan. Anjan Dutt and Aparna Sen will be seen as the two lawyers here. Tanushree Chakraborty will be playing the role of Raja’s concubine and Rudranil Ghosh will also be also seen in a pivotal role in the movie!
About the story of the film, director Srijit Mukherjee tweeted, “Truth is stranger than Fiction. But History is stranger than the Truth.” The shooting will be done in places like Kolkata, Murshidabad, and Darjeeling. The poster has already increased the anxiety among the cine-lovers and we congratulate Mr. Srijit Mukherjee for creating such a poster that is taking the social media apart with its cool and new graphic style which is seldom seen in a Bengali movie poster!
