Bangladesh-India joint production and Moscow International Film Festival award winner Doob (No Bed of Roses) will hit the big screen on October 27 in both the countries, its Indian producers said in a statement.
Directed by Mostofa Sarwar Farooki, Doob features Irrfan Khan and Parno Mittra of India and Nusrat Imrose Tisha and Rokeya Prachy of the neighbouring country.
Produced by Jaaz Multimedia of Bangladesh and Eskay Movies (of India) and co-produced by Irrfan Khan, the film has bagged independent jury award at the 39th Moscow International Film Festival besides being nominated for Golden Goblet Awards in Shanghai International Film Festival just before release.
Talks were on with distributors of respective countries whether the film can be released in Australia and Singapore also on October 27, the statement said.
Doob was in news earlier this year for being initially banned in Bangladesh in the wake of reports that the film was loosely based on late Bangladeshi writer and filmmaker Humayun Ahmed but the filmmaker had denied that it was a biopic and the film later received a No Objection Certificate from the Bangladesh Film Development Corporation.
Director Mostofa Sarwar Farooki had earlier said "Making No Bed of Roses was literally no bed of roses for me. But I am very happy to see top international critics warm reviews of the film and I have almost forgotten all the troubles we went through. Now I am waiting for the film to release and reach its audience as soon as possible." -PTI
