‘Uma’: Srijit Mukherji happy to see his core audience returning

Srijit Mukherji’s latest ‘Uma’ has now entered the fourth week and running successfully throughout Bengal receiving positive reviews and great response from the audience and critics alike.

An elated Srijit has expressed his happiness for attracting his core audience once again in ‘Uma’. “It feels great, what makes it even more satisfactory is the return of my core audience. In recent times, they got a bit disappointed with my films. My last two ventures ‘Yeti Obhijaan’ and ‘Zulfiqar’ faced criticism.” Srijit revealed.

Featuring Jisshu Sengupta, Sara Sengupta, Anjan Dutt, Srabanti Chatterjee and Sayantika Banerjee in the lead, ‘Uma’ is running successfully in the theatres. Touted to be Srijit’s most ambitious project ever, ‘Uma’ has been inspired by the story of Canadian boy Evan Leversage, who died of cancer in 2015. Leversage came to be known as ‘The Boy Who Moved Christmas’ when his hometown celebrated Christmas, two months in advance, to make sure the little boy could see the festival before death.
