The film is based on the gruesome terrorist attack in Dhaka's Holey Artisan Bakery in 2016, the 83-minute film was shot in one take.
After a four-year long battle with Bangladesh Film Censor Board, the film was ultimately approved for release in January. However, it appears that Bangladesh's Ministry of Information and Broadcasting hasn't had a change of heart, and the circumstance is still unclear.
"Saturday Afternoon" earned a lot of appreciation internationally, in some of the biggest festivals across the world and stars Nusrat Imrose Tisha, Zahid Hasan, Mamunur Rashid and Parambrata Chatterjee, among others.
