The vibrant campus of iLEAD recently played host to the team behind the much-anticipated film, “Shri Swapankumarer Badami Hyenar Kobole”. The visit, led by renowned director Debaloy Bhattacharya, actress Shruti Das, and singer Rishi Panda, left an indelible mark on the students.

The event began with an exclusive screening of the film’s trailer, setting the stage for a unique interaction between the artists and the enthusiastic iLEAD students.

Explaining his choice of the forgotten writer Swapankumar’s story for the film, he shared, “I wanted to create a surreal world where imaginations can fly. So I went back to this world of Swapankumar. I have not taken up any story from it. I have made use of the elements and characters because he (Swapankumar) saw this city in a very different light”.

Actress Shruti Das, who plays a pivotal role in the film, urged the present audience to experience the magic of the movie on the big screen and extended a request for their support and encouragement.
