Swastika Mukherjee, Anik Dutta, Sundeep Bhutoria launch the DVD of Arindam Sil's "Aborto"
arely has any filmmaker in any film industry took a truly different stance on piracy!
Just the thought of letting the piracy swing into action, have their time under sun and then when they are all worn out, stepping in to rule the roost - sounds like the most ambitiously atrocious idea ever; but that is exactly what filmmaker Arindam Sil and Kaleidoscope Entertainment - a digital solution agency had strategised for the launch of the original DVD and VCD's of Sil's first directorial venture - "Aborto".
The DVD's and VCD's of "Aborto" were launched at Crossword on Elgin Road, by ace actress Swastika Mukherjee, filmmaker Anik Dutta and socialite Sundeep Bhutoria in presence of Arindam Sil, Saswata Chatterjee, Tota Roy Chowdhury and the crew of the film.
"Arindam da is a very dear friend and I have known him since my days in television, well over a decade or so. Now that I did a guest appearance in his first film, and I am doing his next two, he better cast me in all the ones he makes or I will kill him!" said Swastika who was all smiles as she launched the DVD and posed for the shutterbugs.
Anik Dutta was all for making a point as well and told our Little Birdie - "It's all about timing you see. There are many people even outside this city and country who want to see and appreciate good bangla cinema but they don't quite have access to them. Original DVD's at an affordable price is a must and having it ready on the shelves of national chain of music stores is an added bonus."
The two lead actors and on-screen rivals from "Aborto" - Saswata Chatterjee and Tota Roy Chowdhury seemed to also agree with the concept of releasing the film's DVD a year after it's release and encouraged all present to buy original.
On an ending note Arindam Sil added that his next film "Ebar Shobor" is scheduled to go on floors really soon and stars Saswata Chatterjee in the main role as Detective Shobor Dasgupta. We surely will be waiting to catch that film!
