The first-phase shooting of Pritilata was held in 2020. The film revolves around Pritilata Waddedar, who embraced martyrdom as the first Bengali female revolutionary nationalist in the anti-British movement in 1932. Pori Moni is portraying the character of Pritilata in the film.
Actress Pori Moni, chairman of team Pritilata Muhid Hawlader, director of the film Rashid Polash, screenwriter of the film Golam Rabbani, actress Shampa Reza and others were present at the press conference.
‘We are glad to have Pori Moni back with us. We will begin the second-phase shooting of Pritilata on October 27 in Chattogram. The first-phase shooting of the film was held in November 2020. But we had to postpone the film’s shooting due to the Covid-19 situation,’ Golam Rabbani told New Age.
‘We conducted a lot of research on Pritilata Waddedar for two years before beginning the shooting of the film. We visited Dhalghat village in Patiya upazila of Chattogram where she was born in 1911 and other locations related to her. We hope that the film, which will portray the valiant deeds of Pritilata, will play a role in inspiring the women of our country to raise their voices against injustice,’ added Golam Rabbani.
Actress Shampa Reza read a letter, which was written by Pritilata to her mother, at the programme.
Pritilata Waddedar led the armed attack on Pahartali European Club in Chattogram, which had a signboard that read Dogs and Indians not allowed.
The attack was planned by Surya Sen. Pritilata took part in the attack disguising herself as a Punjabi male on September 23, 1932. They torched the club and Pritilata was injured during the attack. To avoid capture, she took her own life by consuming cyanide.Dhaka Tribune
