Chittagong, the film that was stuck for sometime will finally see the light of the day courtesy Anurag Kashyap and his distributor friend Sunil Bohra. Anurag who saw the film and liked it a lot has been vocal about the film for a long time and has in fact supported the film on Twitter. Anurag's tweets even resulted in a controversy during the release of Ashutosh Gowariker's film Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey (KHJJS) starring Abhishek Bachchan since even that film was based on the Chittagong uprising.
Now since Anurag has liked the film, he has come forward to bail out the filmmaker and has agreed to be a presenter on the film with Sunil Bohra who will distribute the film as well.
The film directed by Bedabrata Pain starring Manoj Bajpayee is set against the backdrop of a little known saga in 1930s British-occupied India - where a group of schoolboys and young women, led by a schoolteacher, Masterda Surjya Sen dared to take on the British Empire
Says Sunil Bohra, "Anurag is a good friend. He liked the film a lot and told me about it. We are jointly presenting the film and we will try and ensure that the film has a wide release like any other commercial film."
When asked writer director Bedabrata Pain, he said, "The small delay was a blessing in disguise as it gave us some more time to do the patch work better. I am deeply honoured that respected filmmakers such as Anurag Kashyap, Vishal Bhardwaj, Rakeysh Mehra, Ketan Mehta and others have loved the film, and I am thrilled that Anurag Kashyap and Sunil Bohra are releasing the film now."
The film is slated to release early next year.
