'Bhaijaan Elo Re' is the fourth collaboration between Indian director Joydeep Mukherjee and Dhallywood superstar Shakib Khan
Two widely anticipated film - Shakib Khan’s “Bhaijaan Elo Re” and Rahsaan Noor’s “Bengali Beauty” is all set to release on this July 20. Both of the films were buzzing the social media for quite a long time, created some controversies and they are finally getting their nationwide theatrical release on the same day.
After creating a lot of hype, Shakib’s “Bhaijaan Elo Re” release in Bangladesh became uncertain due to a recent ruling issued by the Bangladesh High Court.
On May 20th the High Court ruling stated: “Why releasing a foreign or co-production film won’t be illegal during Eid vacation?” The High Court demanded an answer from the Secretary and Joint Secretary of Ministry of Information, and the Vice Chairman of film censor board within the next four weeks. Later on, the film’s Eid release was delayed.
“Bhaijaan Elo Re” is the fourth collaboration between Indian director Joydeep Mukherjee and Dhallywood superstar Shakib Khan. The film was produced by India’s Eskay Movies and being imported and distributed in Bangladesh under the South Asian Free Trade Area (Safta) treaty by NU Ahmed Traders. The film’s distribution company owner Kamal Mohammad Kibriya Lipu recently said that hopefully they will release the film in more than 50 theatres in Bangladesh on July 20.
The film features Shakib Khan in a double role alongside Indian actor Srabanti and Payel Sarkar.
On the other hand, director, producer and actor Rahsaan Noor’s “Bengali Beauty,” starring himself and model, actor Mumtaheena Toya, released their trailer back in August 2017 and instantly went viral. The film was supposed to be released in Bangladesh this February but the film was banned by the censor board caliming some periodic issues with the film. The film’s team appealed and finally got their censor certificate and will release in over 20 theatres in its first week from July 20.
Though the film was primarily banned in Bangladesh, which delayed their 2018 Valentine’s Day release, the film was a hit in US and overseas theatres and ran successfully for several weeks.
The film will hit the theatres of London, Paris and New York from August 10.
