RBN Web Desk: Director Kaushik Ganguly, whose film Nagar Kirtan bagged four top honours at the 65th National Film Awards announced in New Delhi recently, has stated that the same same-sex love story is unlikely to release soon. Actor Riddhi Sen won the best actor (male) for his performance in the film.
That aside, Nagar Kirtan won a special jury award, and a best makeup for Ram Rajak and best costume design for Gobinda Mondal.
Ritwick Chakraborty and Manabi Bandopadhyay play other major roles in the fim.
Speaking to the media recently, Kaushik said, Nagar Kirtan will be sent to festivals around the world and shown to a select audience before it is released commercially in India. It’s a niche film more on the lines of Arekti Premer Galpo, Apur Panchali, and Shabdo, Kaushik said, adding that he wants to generate audience interest before it hits the theatres.
The director said that the film is very close to his heart and made by the “real” Kaushik Ganguly. Neither he nor the producer, are keen to hurry with the Nagar Kirtan release, the Bishorjon director added.
