Soumitra-Rahul in Shlilata Haanir Pore adaptation


Reshmi Mitra who has recently wrapped up the shoot of her upcoming movie ‘Limlight’ starring Rituparna Sengupta in the lead is ready with yet another project. It will be a screen adaptation of Mallika Sengupta's popular novel ‘Shlilata Haanir Pore’.

While Devlina Kumar will play the victim, a band vocalist, Soumitra Chatterjee will be seen as a teacher. Rahul Banerjee essays the role of a singer in Devlina’s band. This will be Rahul’s second film with Soumitra Chatterjee after Atanu Ghosh’s directorial ‘Rupkatha Noy’. The cast also includes Sreela Majumder, Moubani Sorcar, Ishan Majumder among others.

Speaking about working with Soumitra Chatterjee, Rahul said, "Who doesn’t want to work with the legend? Of course he is a reason, but, the script is also interesting."

‘Slilatahanir Pore’, as the title suggests, will focus on how women are treated after getting molested in a dreadful event.
