The film festival is slated to be held from September 8-22. ‘Aparajito’, starring young actor Jeetu Kamal as Aparajito Roy, revolves around his struggles to make his first film ‘Pather Padabali’, Dutta said. “The film is based on the indomitable journey of one of the world’s greatest filmmakers who overcame all odds to bring out ‘Pather Panchali’, which put Bengali cinema on the world map,” the director, who has award-winning movies such as ‘Bhooter Bhobisyot’ and ‘Borunbabur Bondhu’ to his credit, had earlier said.
