Ram Kamal Mukherjee's Hindi feature film A Tribute to Rituparno Ghosh: Season's Greetings will premiere on ZEE5 post Diwali. Set in Kolkata, the film deals with Article 377 and the LGBTQIA community through the story of a mother and a daughter. The film marks the comeback of Celina Jaitly Haag post marriage and motherhood. The film also stars Lillette Dubey and debutant Azhar Khan in the lead. Trans actor Shree Ghatak makes her Bollywood debut in the film. 

“I am extremely delighted that our film will premiere on ZEE5, and I would like to thank Tarun Katial and Jay Pandya who saw the potential in our content. I feel that while it's very important to make good content, it's equally important to get an equally good platform to showcase your work," says Ram Kamal, who earlier directed the short film Cakewalk, starring Esha Deol. 

Speaking about her comeback in Seasons Greetings, Celina adds, "When Ram Kamal narrated the story to me, I immediately connected with Romita's character because she is real, just like any character from Rituparno Ghosh's film. Since the last two decades I have been closely working with the LGBTQIA cause and this film deals with issues related with the community and abolishment of article 377. This film is about the celebration of love and freedom.”

The film has two songs in Maithili language originally composed by Rabindranath Tagore. The film was shot in Kolkata by cinematographer Pravatendu Mondal.
