'Achena Bondhutto' - a new film dealing with the LGBT Community to go on floors soon
ection 377 of the Indian Penal Code was recently in news for the Supreme Court having overturned the Delhi High Court’s verdict on homosexuals, thereby pretty much considering them to be outcasts and homosexuality to be illegal.
It is therefore extremely heartening news for the community to know that yet another film is being made based on their lives, in the light of the current situation. The entire film is based on two friends and how society deals with them as they are considered to be homosexuals.
The film called ‘Achena Bondhutto’ will be directed by Hrishikesh Mondol who has also written the story and screenplay. Ajoy Boron Dey will be the Cinematographer while Saaki and Nil will be composing the music for the film.
Sidhu, Pota, Rupam Islam and Tania are expected to sing for the film. The film will star Ushashi, Priyam, Tista Das, Ena, Debika Mukherjee, Nimu Bhowmick, Sanghamitra Banerjee, Dulal Lahiri, Raja Chatterjee and others.
Tista Das incidentally is a transsexual herself and she plays a major role in this film which will be produced by Prasanta Debnath.
The press meet of this film which will go on the floors from 19th Jan took place at the Press Club recently in presence of quite a few members of the cast & crew.
