The lead character in Baghini is called "Didi" in the trailer. She is dressed remarkably like the West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee in a white saree and hair tied up in a bun. Director Nehal Dutta denies that this film is a biopic.
The petition said that that the film has been taken down from a majority of theatres, and out of 48 exhibitors, only two are presently displaying the film. Bhobishyoter Bhoot, directed by Anik Dutta, was released on February 15. The film was allegedly withdrawn from single-screen theatres and multiplexes a day after its release on February 16.
