“The Diary of West Bengal” Trailer Sparks Controversy
A recent trailer release for the upcoming film, “The Diary of West Bengal,” has ignited controversy and legal troubles. The film’s director, Sanjoy Misra, is facing charges for allegedly misrepresenting the state’s current situation and stirring up tension.
Trailer Claims West Bengal is Worse Than Kashmir
The trailer claims that West Bengal’s current state is worse than that of Kashmir, citing ongoing incidents of murder, rape, and discrimination against Hindus. The trailer also features West Bengal’s Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee, who plays a role in the film.
Misrepresentation Accusations and Legal Action
After the trailer’s release, the West Bengal government ordered the film’s exhibit to be shut down, claiming that it misrepresented the state’s current situation. Misra, however, argues that he based the film on actual events and information.
Misra is now facing legal action, with a case filed against him at the Amherst Street police station. He has been summoned for questioning on May 30th.
Director Stands By Film
Despite the backlash and legal woes, Misra says that he stands by his film and that it accurately portrays the ongoing issues in West Bengal. He also stated that he has no plans to return to the state.
The film’s release is still scheduled for August, with Misra preparing for its launch. However, the controversy surrounding “The Diary of West Bengal” raises concerns about the portrayal of current events in cinema and the potential consequences that may arise.
