Can you tell us about the story of "Laal Shari"?
"Laal Shari" is a story of the Bengali people. It represents our rich heritage and culture. It symbolises the beauty of Bengali women, and how each and every thread is crafted by the weavers depict a beautiful tale of love and emotion.
The director of this film has made the film with the utmost care and dedication. Shari is one of the main clothes worn by Bengali women in this country. On the other hand, red is a symbol of love. Overall, I feel the movie will touch the hearts of people of all ages.

Right now, all my plans are centered on "Laal Shari." I will spend my time from now on promoting the film. I urge everyone to stand by our film and our Bengali cinema. I want everyone's love and blessing for the film.
