The trailer of Abir and Ritabhari starrer film ‘Fatafati’ was recently released where the duo appear as Phullora and Bachospati. The film also casts actors like Soma Chakraborty and Swastika Dutta among others. Produced by the noted director producer duo Nandita Roy and Shibaprasad Mukherjee, the film ‘Fatafati’ revolves around the characters of Phullora and Bachospati. The plot of the film is quite big and revolves around the usual problems of the society. The film sends a message to the society against body-shaming.
Actress Ritabhari who is portraying the character of Phullora had to gain 25 odd kgs for fitting in the role for the film. It was quite a challenge but she carried it out and could fit in to the role for the film perfectly. Bollywood actors Emraan Hashmi, Aparshakti Khurana and Pavail Gulati were present during the launch of the trailer for the movie 'Fatafati'. Singer Palash Sen too attended the trailer launch event. The character of Phullora happens to be a tailor who belongs to the outskirts and even if she makes designer clothes, she could not wear those clothes due to her weight because of the criticism she faced for her weight and looks. But she overcame those situations and blossomed into a plus-size model.
The film wants to convey the message of becoming 'Fatafati' by loving yourself and not by following the societal standards blindly. The songs and the trailer have grabbed the attention of the audience and they are in love with the new on-screen couple – Abir and Ritabhari.
The film is scheduled to release in theatres on May 12th.
