Zahid Hasan’s latest film “Sitara” featuring Raima Sen from the Tollywood is finally set to hit the theatres on July 19 across five states in India.
“Sitara,” which had earlier missed its scheduled release date of May last year, tells a harrowing tale of love and betrayal in the backdrop of the seedy world of prostitution.
The film will be released in Bengali, Telegu, and Tamil in theatres across West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.
The movie will star popular Bangladeshi actors Zahid Hasan and Fazlur Rahman Babu, while still a heartthrob Raima Sen is the female lead.
Film-maker Ashis Roy directed “Sitara,” which is based on the novel “Bhorer Prosuti” by Abul Bashar. The film was shot in the border regions of Jalpaiguri and Cooch Behar district of West Bengal.
The movie revolves around Bangladeshi housewife Sitara (played by Raima Sen), who illegally moves into India with her husband Jiban (Fazlur Rahman Babu). Jiban sells Sitara as a sex slave to a notorious smuggler.
Sitara’s whole life turns upside down as she is forced to let go the last vestiges of her dignity and humanity. Dilu (played by Zahid Hasan), who crossed the border with Sitara and Jiban, gets entangled into the series of unfortunate events.
In a world without hope, suffice to say this tale might not end on a happy note.
