Filmmaker Subhash Ghai was so impressed by the response to Rituparno Ghosh’s Bengali film Nauka Dubi at the Goa International Film Festival that he has decided to showcase the film to Hindi-speaking audiences as well.
After obtaining the green signal from Rituparno Ghosh, Subhash Ghai showed the film to Gulzar. Gulzar agreed to pen the Hindi lyrics for the film and translate it on the tunes of Rabindra Sangeet in the film composed by Sanjoy Raja.
The film starring Raima Sen, Riya Sen, Jishu Sen Gupta and Prosenjit, is titled Kashmakash in Hindi and will be released on 20th May. The release date of the film has been timed on 20th May so as to match the release of ‘Nauka Dubi’. “I did not want to deprive Hindi audiences of this beautiful film, so I have got it dubbed in Hindi with Hindi songs by Gulzar sahib. I have been a great fan of Rabindranath Tagore’s stories and music, so I am proud to produce this film with a national award winner director Rituparno Ghosh,” said Subhash Ghai.
