The trailer of National award winning music composer-turned-director Indraadip Das Gupta’s new Bengali film Bismillah was recently launched at a Kolkata hotel. Starring Riddhi Sen as the protagonist, Bismillah also has Subhashree Ganguly, Gaurav Chakraborty, Bidipta Chakraborty, Surangana Bandyopadhyay and Kaushik Ganguly in important roles.

The director wanted to capture communal harmony through music in the film. In the film, we see Riddhi playing the role of a Muslim boy, who is also a Shehnai player. He is guided by his father – the character played by Kaushik Ganguly. This is the second time Kaushik is part of Indraadip’s film, the first being Kedara in 2019, which won the National Award. “The film is highly relevant in today’s time. Though I am used to the flute, I was introduced to shehnai for the first time in Bismillah,” said Riddhi.

Subhashree was floored when Indraadip said during the launch of the trailer that he couldn’t think of any actress in Bengali cinema but only her to essay the character of Radha in Bismillah. “Coming from him, it means a lot. Also, this increases my responsibility towards the craft,” she said.

Bismillah releases on August 19.
