The trailer for Srijit Mukherji’s upcoming film “Ek Je Chhilo Raja”, starring Jaya Ahsan, Jishu Sengupta, Aparna Sen, Anjan Dutt, Anirban Bhattacharya and Rudranil Ghosh in lead roles was released on Monday. The trailer was released on the official YouTube channel of SVF (Shree Venkatesh Films), the production company of the film. 

Acclaimed Bangladeshi actor Jaya Ahsan previously confirmed her role in the film and she is seen in a complete new makeover for the periodic drama. The film is based on the Bhawal (current Gazipur division of independent Bangladesh) case of 1921. 

In the case, a 16-year-long court case about the mysterious return of Ramendra Narayan Ray, the second prince of the Bhawal estate, 12 years after his supposed death. Ray had been declared dead in 1909. In 1921, a holy man resembling the dead prince arrived at the estate, sparking off rumours that the prince had indeed returned. 

The trailer, set to the Rabindranath Tagore song ”Maharaj E Ki Saaje,” then goes into a flashback about the prince’s life. Sengupta plays the role of the holy man/prince in Srijit Mukherji’s screen adaptation. 

“Ek Je Chhilo Raja,” based on a true story documented by Partha Bhattacharjee, is slated for Indian release on October 12 marking the upcoming Durga Puja.
