Shah Rukh Khan starrer ‘Jawaan’ was released in Bangladesh on the same day as India and the rest of the world on September 7. The film was a great success in cinemas across the country. Given the influx of viewers, film import companies became increasingly interested in releasing films on the same day as India.
On October 17, Kibria Films head Kamal Mohammad Kibria told Lipu Kal Kantha that Tollygunge film Hubba would be released in Bangladesh on the same day.
Directed by Bratya Basu, Musharraf Karim played the title role. Because of this popular actor in Bangladesh, Lipu decided to release the film in Bangladesh on the same day. However, Lipu was disappointed earlier this month. As you may know, the Ministry of Information currently does not allow the import of images in Bangladesh.
Without giving specific reasons, Lipu assumed that this decision by the Ministry of Information would not hamper the regular screening of the biopic “Mujib – Shaper of a Nation” on Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
However, Hubba will not release in West Bengal on November 24. Lipu said, “Since it was decided to release the film on the same day as Bangladesh, the makers have postponed the release of the film in West Bengal as well.” They have not fixed a new release date.
According to my knowledge, the producer will not release the film if the current political situation in Bangladesh is not normal.
As per the advance notice, ‘Manush’ will release in West Bengal on November 24. The film, starring actor Jeet, was produced by Bangladeshi director Sanjay Samaddar. Bangladeshi Vidya Sinha Mim also played an important role in the film. Abdul Aziz, head of Bangladeshi production company Jazz Multimedia, announced the film’s release in Bangladesh on the same day as India.
The film’s trailer song campaign was carried out by Jazz Multimedia for several days. Abdul Aziz said yesterday: “People” are not coming to Bangladesh. Additionally, all of “Manush’s” campaign posts have been deleted from Jazz’s page.
Abdul Aziz said: “Currently, the Ministry of Information does not allow the import of images in any way.” I did not make any experimental error. Last week I wanted to import “Tiger 3” starring Salman Khan to Bangladesh. I didn’t get permission for that either. What’s the point of promoting this film if you can’t get permission now?”
‘Manush’ director Sanjay Samaddar is now in Kolkata. Over the phone he said, “I was in Mumbai for the color correction and sound design of the film.” Returning to Calcutta on the evening of November 19. I have come to know that Jazz Multimedia is unable to release the film due to some issues. Of course it feels a little bad. This is my first film. It would have been a different experience if audiences from both countries could watch it together. But I haven’t given up hope, I dream that the film will be released in cinemas in Bangladesh, if not in the first week.
Another Bengali film ‘Kurban’ will hit theaters in West Bengal on November 24. Actor Ankush Hazra said that Shaibal Mukherjee’s film will also be released in Bangladesh on the same day. However, it was discovered that the film starring Ankush will not be released in Bangladesh. Even the producers’ association has not yet applied for the release of the film.
Due to the political situation in the country, the release of a domestic film has already been delayed at this point. The latest is Badrul Anam Soud’s Shyama Kavya. The film was scheduled to hit theaters on November 24th. Just then it was announced that Animal could hit theaters on the same day as India on December 1st. Directed by Sanjay Reddy Banga, the film stars Ranbir Kapoor, Rashmika Mandana, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Tripti Dimri in lead roles. Ananya Mamun has started importing the film to Bangladesh with a budget of Rs 100 crore. The earlier film ‘Pathan’ and ‘Jawaan’ was released in Bangladesh under that maker’s Action Cut Entertainment banner. Yesterday, Mamun appeared at the Mumbai office of ‘Animal’ production company T-Series. Mamun also posted a video message from Ranbir Kapoor on his Facebook profile. In the video, Ranbir invited the audience to watch ‘Animal’ in the cinema.
“The production house has given me permission to show ‘Animal’ in Bangladesh,” Ananya Mamun said over the phone from Mumbai yesterday. But the film has a big budget. I alone will not be able to release this film in Bangladesh. I’m trying to add another institution in the country. At the same time, I am trying to get permission to show “Animal” in Bangladesh. I only have 10 days, out of which I will stay here (Mumbai) for five days. All that needs to be done is to sit here.
