Producers Shailendra Kumar and Suraj Sharma have reunited for the Bengali movie Binodiini, which is a fictional biography based on Bengal’s theatre legend Binodini Dasi. The movie directed by Ram Kamal Mukherjee will star actress Rukmini Maitra. Binodiini will be presented by Dev Entertainment.
Commenting on the movie, Rukmini Maitra said, “It’s a dream come true for me. This film would have happened two years ago, but Pandemic changed the entire scenario. Our Entertainment industry suffered the most. With such reputed banners, producers and most importantly Dev coming on board as presenter makes this movie a magnum opus indeed.”
Bengal’s Superstar Dev said, “I as a creative person wanted to extend my gratitude towards a prestigious subject like Binodini Dasi. We don’t make such films these days, and it takes a lot of courage to touch upon subjects as sensitive as Nati Binodini.”
Shailendra Kumar from SS1 Entertainment commented, “I have my personal connection with Kolkata and Bengal. Since I am a singer and a composer, I have always admired Bengali art and literature. When director Ram Kamal Mukherjee narrated the story and showed me Rukmini ji’s image as Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, I knew this film would become special.”
Suraj Sharma from P K Entertainment, says, “I am extremely happy that filmmakers are finally taking the risk of telling untold stories from the past and I feel that this will connect with every woman in our society who faced oppression from male chauvinist society.
