Priyanka Chopra, the Beauty with Brains has already opened a production company which has produced super hit films like Marathi film “Ventilator” and Punjabi film “Sarvann”. As same as acting, she tasted the success in film production too. Now, PeeCee’s company will be producing a film helmed by the renowned National Award director Ujjwal Chatterjee.
The film is not actually a biopic but it will narrate a relationship of legendary Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore and his English teacher Annapurna Turkhud and their infatuation for each other. However, the members of Visva Bharati University, Kolkata are not happy with this bold yet sensitive story as it includes two kissing scenes. The members have objected the film for its these two intimate scenes. They requested the director of the film Ujjwal Chatterjee to delete the scenes. In case the filmmakers fail to adhere to their demand, the committee claims to move the court for the same.
After knowing all this director Chatterjee said,
“I have agreed with Visva Bharati’s recommendations on removing intimate scenes. I am removing one scene. There are no problems regarding the decisions of the committee formed by the varsity to look into the authenticity of research. The shooting will commence in November this year, and will take place in Shantiniketan, Jorasanko, and Maharashtra.”
The film will depict the non-physical relationship between the two, therefore, Chatterjee decided to delete the intimate scene as per the request. The movie will release in Marathi, Bengali and English.
