Actor Jisshu Sengupta, who plays the role of younger Soumitra in the film along with actor and director Parambrata Chatterjee, launched the trailer in the presence of the cast and crew in Kolkata. The trailer features glimpses of the journey of Soumitra Chatterjee. From his struggling period to his reaching the pinnacle of success, the film highlights important moments of his life and the people associated with him.

Talking about the late actor, Parambrata said, “The History of Indian cinema remains incomplete without the mention of Soumitra Chatterjee. I am truly indebted to him for agreeing to not even just allow me to make this movie but also act in it. His demise is truly unfortunate and a major loss for the film and theatre fraternity. He was extremely active even at his age and I have shared some wonderful moments while working on Abhijaan.”

He further added, “Capturing the era and the mannerisms of other renowned personalities were quite a challenge but my entire star cast played their roles to perfection. Abhijaan, to all of us, will always remain special.”

Apart from Soumitra Chatterjee, Jisshu and Parambrata, Abhijaan will see Paoli Dam playing the role of Suchitra Sen, Sohini Sarkar as Madhabi Mukhopadhyay, Rudranil Ghosh as Rabi Ghosh, Padmanabha Dasgupta as Anup Kumar, Tuhina Das as Waheeda Rehman and Dulal Lahiri as Chhabi Biswas, among others. Bengali superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee plays a special role in the film. He is also seen in the trailer.

The film is produced by Ratan Shree Nirman in association with Roadshow Films Pvt Ltd. The music of Abhijaan has been composed by Barun Kumar Mondal. This film will be Soumitra Chatterjee’s last work on celluloid. The veteran Bengali actor breathed his last on November 15, 2020. He was 85. He had tested coronavirus positive on October 6 and was admitted to a Kolkata hospital where he died after 40 days of battle with Covid-19.
