Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan’s maiden collaboration with acclaimed Bangladeshi filmmaker Mostofa Sarwar Farooki, titled Doob: No Bed of Roses, is facing difficulties to get a release in Bangladesh but in a good news for the film, it will be screened at the prestigious Shanghai International Film Festival. The film, which is inspired by Bangladeshi writer-director Humayun Ahmed who divorced his wife of 27 years and married an actress 33 years his junior, has been co-produced by Irrfan Khan. Farooki has, denied that the film is a biopic.

Sharing his update on Twitter, a new poster of the love story was shared by Irrfan with fans, “#Doob will be screened at the Shanghai International Film Festival .. Here’s the poster…” The movie also stars Bangladeshi actors Nusrat Imrose Tisha, Rokeya Prachi and Bengali actor Parno Mittra. Doob has been produced by Abdul Aziz and Irrfan Khan under the banner of Jaaz Multimedia and Irrfan Khan Films respectively. In February, the news was out that the film had been banned by Bangladeshi government.

According to US news website variety.com, the Bangladesh Film Development Corporation’s (BFDC) Joint Venture Preview Committee approved the script of the movie on March 8, 2016, after which the movie went into production. The completed movie was previewed for the BFDC on February 12, 2017, and received a No Objection Certificate on February 15. Only a day later, the BFDC sent the producers a letter stating that the certificate had been cancelled due to a letter from the Bangladesh Information Ministry.

The variety.com report claims they have had access to the film and it starts with a disclaimer that the film has no resemblance to any real life characters alive or dead. Farooki, who is known in Bangladeshi cinema for works like Television and Ant Story, is now taking the matter to court.
