Ghose’s “Sankhachil”, jointly produced by India and Bangladesh, was shot on both sides of the border, and is his third Indo-Bangla production.

The film, which recently won the National Award, portrays the angst of the people living near the Indo-Bangladesh border, and stars Prosenjit and Bangladeshi actress Kusum. Ghose says that he has always been inspired by Ritwik Ghatak, whose partition themed films have left a mark on him. He believes that partition always brought forth the raw wounds on the psyche of affected people on both sides of the border.



Piyush Chauhan is a simple apple farmer from Rampur, close to Simla. This Himalayan pandu has immense interest in films of all sorts. Especially, Hindi. In his spare time, which isn’t much these days, he dreams of climbing the impossible mountains.
