Mostofa Sarwar Farooki's Bangladesh-India joint-production film “Doob” (“No Bed of Roses”) will premiere today at the INOX Theatre at Quest Mall in Kolkata, India.
Earlier on October 22, Farooki posted on his Facebook page that instead of Dhaka, the film will be premiered in Kolkata. He included an explanation of why the film is being premiered in Kolkata.
“The film is a joint production of India and Bangladesh. The film has four main actors, two from Bangladesh and two from India. The director and screenwriter are from Bangladesh. The cinematographer, editor, music director are all Bangladeshi. The story is Bangladeshi. The locations are in Bangladesh. Shooting was also done in Bangladesh. Now our Indian producers have asked if the premiere is in Bangladesh as well, what do they get?”
“Their statement seems reasonable to us. We have decided to keep the spirit of a joint production film, so the premiere will be held in Kolkata, on the evening of October 26.”
Irrfan Khan, Nusrat Imrose Tisha, Parno Mitra, Mostafa Sarwar Farooki, and the film's producers will be present at the premiere.
On October 27, the film will be released in theatres in Bangladesh. In addition to Bangladesh and India, “Doob” will be released in Australia, USA, Singapore, Italy, and France.
