A biopic on Bengal’s bravest freedom fighter Dinesh Gupta

His directorial debut ‘Sahaj Paather Gappo’ has given Manas Mukul Pal the much-needed boost to start his career. His first film became a box office hit last year receiving rave reviews from both the audience and critics.

Now the talented filmmaker is all set for his next venture which is reportedly a biopic on freedom fighter Dinesh Gupta. The film will begin right from his college days and follow his indomitable works and actions as Bengal’s one of the bravest freedom fighters.

Not just Dinesh, the story of Binay and Badal will find their place in the upcoming biopic. The famous Writers Building attack by Binay-Badal-Dinesh will also be covered. It’s certainly great news for Bengali cine lovers. After a long time, we will see a historical biopic. Interestingly, earlier this year rumours suggested Dev will also make a film on Binay-Badal-Dinesh.

Dinesh Gupta was born on December 6, 1911 in Josholong of Munshiganj District, now in Bangladesh. While studying in Dhaka College, he joined Bengal Volunteers, a group founded by Subhas Chandra Bose in 1928. Soon the Bengal Volunteers turned out to be a more active revolutionary association and started liquidating infamous British police officers. Dinesh was only 19 when he was hanged for anti-government activities and murder on 7 July 1931 at Alipore Jail.

As per industry sources, the camera will roll on for this biopic from October. The film will be shot in Kolkata, Midnapore, and Bangladesh.
