Biopic soon on rasogolla's inventor
The shoot for the film christened Rasogolla will start in January 2018
A biopic on celebrated sweetmaker Nobin Chandra Das, regarded as the inventor of rasogolla, is in the works, its makers said on Tuesday. The film christened Rasogolla will be helmed by Pavel and produced by the Roy-Mukherjee led production house Windows Production.
"Shooting will start in January 2018. We started our research around a year and half ago. It centres around Nobin Chandra Das," says Shiboprosad Mukherjee (of the director duo Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee)
He said the project was launched much before West Bengal won the Geographical Indication tag for Banglar Rasogolla. The state has steadfastly maintained that rosogolla was invented by Das in 1868. The year 2018 marks the 150th year of the invention.
