Teaser of Srijit Mukherji’s Ek Je Chhilo Raja Released

The official teaser of the much awaited film- ‘Ek Je Chhilo Raja’ released on the eve of the 72nd death anniversary of the Bhawal Sanyasi Raja. The story of “Ek Je Chhilo Raja” describes the fascinating story of more than two decades and takes us back to that time when an extended court case in search of truth made the whole nation stay in awe.

The power-packed teaser goes on to reveal in bits and pieces the silhouette of a Sanyasi whose entire body is pockmarked with scars and besmeared with ashes. In the background are heard the voices of a legal advisor demanding to know the identity of another man who claims himself to be “Maharaja Mahendra Kumar Chowdhury”, thus giving us a sneak-peak into the most intriguing royal courtroom battle in history – Ek Je Chhilo Raja (The Imposter Prince).

Ek Je Chhilo Raja is the story of Mahendra Kumar Choudhuri, the middle prince of the Bhawal Estate (also named as Bikrampur Estate) , who was affected by syphilis and was taken to Darjeeling for treatment along with his wife, Chandrabati Devi , brother in law, Satya and a family doctor, Ashwini. He apparently died in Darjeeling and was cremated there as well.

After 12 years, a Sanyasi comes back to the estate where people start noticing him and a rumour spreads that he is the lost prince of Bikrampur estate.
