Watch the trailer of Doosra below:
Director Abhinay Deo says, “Sourav Ganguly marked the end of an era, the end of the submission. His one move at the NatWest final was so powerful and brought such a huge paradigm shift in our thinking. This film captures this through the life of a girl living in a patriarchal family suppressed by society and societal obligations. The poster of the film is only the first look. There are several more layers that audiences will understand once they watch the trailer.”
Actor Plabita Borthakur who starred in PK and last seen in Lipstick Under My Burka and Ankur Vikal from Slumdog Millionaire has played pivotal characters in the movie.
