Irrfan Khan took to Twitter on Thursday to unveil the first poster of his banned Bangladeshi film ‘Doob’ directed by Mostofa Sarwar Farooki.
There are speculations that the film is said to be loosely based on late Bangladeshi writer-filmmaker Humayun Ahmed., who divorced his wife of 27 years and married an actress 33 years his junior. However, the filmmaker of ‘Doob’ has denied that it's a biopic.
According to a variety.com report, the Bangladesh Film Development Corporation's (BFDC) Joint Venture Preview Committee approved the script of the movie on March 8, 2016, after which the film went into production. The completed film was previewed for the BFDC on February 12, 2017, and received a NOC on February 15.
But just a day later, the BFDC sent the production house a letter stating that the certificate had been cancelled due to a letter from the Bangladesh Information Ministry.
Irrfan, known for his performance-based roles, had expressed shock at the decision, and said "this is a humane story that deals with complex male and female relationships in a subtle and balanced way. What harm will it cause to the society if seen?"
‘Doob -No Bed of Roses’ is jointly produced by Bangladesh's Jaaz Multimedia and India's Eskay Movies along with Irrfan's IK Company.
