For Bengal, it’s an important event that a national player is entering this market and we are proud to associate with Sony LIV. The three films are completely different from each other.

Haami 2, on the other hand, is a sweet story of Laltu and Mitali Mondal and their sons, one of whom is a child prodigy.”
