National Award-winning actor Jaya Ahsan, who has garnered immense popularity in Kolkata, stars in Kaushik Ganguly's 2017 film, 'Bishorjon', alongside Abir Chatterjee in the lead role and Kaushik Ganguly in a special role. The film is slated for release in Bangladesh on January 4, 2019, according to Iftekhar Uddin Naushad, the present owner of Madhumita Cinema Hall and president of Bangladesh Motion Pictures Exhibitors Association.
Bishorjon narrates the love story between a Bangladeshi widow and a small-time Indian businessman. Jaya is the first Bangladeshi actor to win the Indian Filmfare Award, Zee Cine Award and International Bangla Film Award for her performance in the film.
On the other hand, Bijaya, the sequel to Bishorjon, will be released in Australia, Canada, The USA and West Bengal this month.
Last year, the Jaya Ahsan starrer Debi, the film adaptation of renowned author Humayun Ahmed's novel of the same name, opened to rave reviews from the critics and audience alike. The film marked Jaya's debut into the field of production. After the spectacular success of Debi, the actor has her eyes set on her upcoming film, Phurut.
