Kolkata: Something very unique is happening on May 27th this year! Bengali superstar, Prasenjit Chatterjee and RituparnaSengupta come together after 14 years, to co-star opposite each other for NanditaRoy and ShiboproshaadMukhopadyay’s “ Praktan” Bengali movie. That’s not all, Praktan will be released simultaneously in 27 cities in India as well as in Los Angeles, USA.
Worldwide Distributors, Eros Entertainment in collaboration with Windows Production House are working with Babli Chakraborty, NABC Film Team Chairman, who is a Los Angeles resident, to bring the film to non-resident Bengalis in California, the same weekend it is releasing in Kolkata. This probably marks the first time a Bengali film is releasing simultaneously in India and USA an cause for much rejoicing for a “non-resident” Bengali population, that is starved of viewing quality Bengali films on screen in theaters , outside Bengal.
