Acclaimed filmmaker Ranjan Ghosh’s controversy-mired Bengali film ‘Rong Beronger Kori’ hit theatres across the state today.
The film had, in the past, drawn the ire of Hindu Jagran Manch for having two of its characters named after deities Ram and Sita.
The members of the outfit had even demonstrated outside the local office of the CBFC in December last year, seeking changes in the names of the characters.
Ghosh said his film was granted a U/A certification in January by the CBFC Kolkata without any cuts.
“They (Censor) did not ask me to beep any word. I am happy with the positive response of the Censor board members here,” he said, adding the characters in ‘Rong Beronger kori’ have no mythological connections.
The film, which has four separate stories tied to a common thread, has Chiranjit Chakraborty, Rituparna Sengupta, Ritwik Chakraborty and Arunima Ghosh in lead roles.
Ghosh’s directorial debut Hrid Majharey had received critical acclaim at home and abroad.
