Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Superstar-turned MP Dev wishes all the three upcoming Bengali film releases this puja, including the period-contemporary flick 'Yoddha' does well at the box office and keep cash registers tinging.

"I wish all the best for Jeet and director Srijit Mukherjee for their two upcoming flicks though I have a soft corner for 'Yoddha' where pre-production process involved over a year," Dev said here.

"We all work hard at shoots, the cast and crew. A film is made with passion and dreams. What you finally see on screen is the product of all this hard work.

"From 'Chander Pahar' to 'Yoddha' I gave everything, the other cast members gave everything. Let the audience back our effort. Let all the three films do well. Important for industry," the 'Rangbaaz' actor said.

Dev, who recalled how girls used to steal a glance of good looking guys at Durga Puja pandals, said the lavishly mounted film had a peppy puja number which is Bengali to its core.

"I know how difficult it is for the people to sqeeze time for watching films during the five puja days but take my word, you will not feel let down if you give a little time for Bengali cinema. We, the entertainment industry, working hard to wean you to the theatres. You will get your money's worth," Dev, having earned acclaim for last release 'Buno Haansh', said.

Yoddha, produced by Shri Venkatesh Films, also starred Nigel and Proloy-actor Mimi Chakroborty.
