The veteran actress, Rakhee Gulzar, who has stayed away from the spotlight of late, is set to return on the silver screen for a Bengali-Hindi bilingual directed by Bangla director Gautam Haldar.

Confirming the news to The Asian Age, Gulzar said, “Normally, I’d say no to any acting offer, no matter how tempting. But when the director told me he was doing a screen adaptation of Moti Nandy’s classic novel Bijolibalar Mukti, I agreed to make an exception this time.”

She added, “It’s a very topical subject. It touches on communal and caste issues, as well as the rights and privileges of a 70-year-old Brahmin widow. We shot the film in Bengali, but now on the director’s request, we are dubbing the film in Hindi too.”
