'We are hoping that everything will go well at the censor board and our audiences will get to see the film on the big screen next month'

Director Abdullah Mohammad Saad’s second feature “Rehana Maryam Noor” was selected for the 74th Cannes Film Festival as the first Bangladeshi and the only South Asian film at this year’s “Un Certain Regard” section.

The film was finally submitted to the Bangladesh Film Censor Board on September 12.

Producer Ehsanul Haque Babu told the media, “We have been preparing for the censor board since August. But we got a bit delayed and could not prepare the necessary documentations in due time. Finally, we submitted the film last Sunday, on September 12.”

“We are eyeing a late October release. Hopefully, everything will go well at the censor board and our audiences will get to see the film on the big screen next month.”

He added, “Audiences will see the exact version screened at the Cannes. We did not add or delete any scenes.”
