Ironically, the controversial movie was banned initially in the country from where it earned entry in the Best Foreign Language Film Category for the 2019 Academy Awards.

Starring Khan as the protagonist who is a successful film maker facing a midlife crisis, the real life inspired movie is an apparent referral to the life of celebrated author and film maker Ahmed and had created quite a furore in Bangladesh, before being cleared to release in October last year.

Also starring Rokeya Prachi, Nusrat Imrose Tisha and Parno Mittra, the India- Bangladesh co- production is now the official choice of the Bangladesh Oscar Committee for the 91st Academy Awards scheduled for February 24, next year.
