"Maya- the lost Mother," a film by Masud Pathik, has received two awards at the virtual Indo American International Festival of World Cinema.

The film features Indian film actress Mumtaz Sorcar and other prominent actors Pran Roy, Jyotika Jyoti and Debashish Kaiser in lead roles.

"Maya- the lost Mother" also won awards at the Indus Valley International Film Festival in Delhi last year.
