Filmmaker Ram Kamal Mukherjee’s second venture A Tribute to Rituparno Ghosh: Season’s Greetings will premiere on ZEE5 post Diwali. After the success of Cakewalk, author turned director Ram Kamal Mukherjee’s second feature Season’s Greetings will premiere on ZEE5, India’s fastest growing OTT platform. The 47-minute Hindi feature marks the comeback of Bollywood actor Celina Jaitly Haag post marriage and motherhood. The film also stars theatre thespian Lillette Dubey and debutant Azhar Khan in the lead and marks the debut of Bollywood’s first transgender actor Shree Ghatak in a pivotal role.

The film has become India’s first ever feature to collaborate with United Nations Free and Equal. The film deals with Article 377 and LGBTQIA community. “Since Rituda was very vocal about the cause, this comes up as a vital issue in the film. It’s weaved in subtly and that’s probably the beauty of the tale,” says Ram Kamal. The film has two songs in Maithli language composed by Rabindranath Tagore and has been shot in beautiful locales in Kolkata by cinematographer Pravatendu Mondal.

“I am extremely delighted that our film will be premiered on ZEE5, and I would like to thank Tarun Katial and Jay Pandya who saw the potential in our content. I feel that while it’s very important to make good content, it’s equally important to get an equally good platform to showcase your work,” says Ram Kamal.

Celina, the lead actor from the film says, “It is great to associate with a massive platform like ZEE5. This is a special film and it was indeed a pleasure to work with Ram Kamal Mukherjee and the entire cast and crew of the film. When Ram Kamal narrated me the story I immediately connected with Romita’s character because she is real. Just like any character from Rituparno Ghosh’s film. Since last two decades I have been closely working with LGBTQIA cause this film deals with issues related with the community and abolishment of article 377. This film is about celebration of love and freedom.

Lillette Dubey said, “I am glad to be a part of Ram Kamal’s film Season’s Greetings, which will premiere on ZEE5 soon. I always wanted to work with Rituparno Ghosh, unfortunately he left too early. I am happy to be a part of a film that pays homage to such a wonderful filmmaker.

Aritra Das feels honoured to be associated with one of India’s leading digital platforms. “We couldn’t have asked for anything better than ZEE5. This film was an ambitious project for all of us and we waited for the best platform. I think it’s all about the right content,”

Set in Kolkata, the film revolves around a mother and daughter relationship. The first look of the film was revealed by Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan on 56th birth anniversary of late Rituparno Ghosh on August 31st. In a special video message to director Ram Kamal Mukherjee, he expressed, “Ram Kamal worked as a journalist for more than 20 years and has written five books which fetched him many accolades. Now, Season’s Greetings is his second Hindi film and I wish him and entire team all the best for this wonderful tribute to Rituparno Ghosh,one of Bengal’s most celebrated filmmakers.”

Shailendra Kumar feels that this unique step will help the film in reaching out to larger number of people. “Being a Kishore Kumar fan, I grew up watching Amit ji films. I know almost all his blockbuster songs by heart. When Ram Kamal da mentioned that Amitji would unveil the poster of our film, I just couldn’t believe. In fact for a while I thought he was pulling a prank on me,” says Shailendra Kumar.
