Bengali Movie ‘Khancha’ releasing Today
Government grant-winning film, ‘Khancha’ will get released today in six cinema halls including the Star Cineplex.
The film, directed by Akram Khan has been made on the story of eminent short story writer Hasan Azizul Huq.
The production company organised a press briefing at the Channel i complex in the capital on Thursday, marking the release of the film.
Channel i managing director Faridur Reza Sagar, veteran actor Mamunur Rashid, Abul Kalam Azad, and Akram Khan addressed the briefing, among others.
“The film was made on the partition of India in 1947. A number of Hindus had to leave all their belongings in Pakistan and made a long journey for India, while thousands of Muslims had to endure the same in India. The story of the film moves on telling misery of one such family in East Pakistan,” Sagar said.
Director Akram Khan said songs composed by Rabindranath Tagore and DL Roy have been used in the movie.
The film was made under the banner of Impress Telefilm, with Jaya Ahsan, Chandni, Azad Abul Kalam, Arman Pervej Murad and Kayes Chowdhury in the different roles.
