Nagarkirtan is a love story of a transwoman and flutist which stars Riddhi Sen and Ritwik Chakraborty. It is a critically acclaimed movie that swept many national awards.

The film stars Riddhi Sen as Parimal, a trans woman from rural Bengal, and Ritwick Chakraborty as Madhu, a flute player from the Kirtaniya town of Nabadwip. Porimal runs away from home and joins a ghetto of eunuchs as Puti and sings at traffic signals to earn money. There she falls in love with Madhu. Their love blossoms while they dream of raising the money required for the sex reassigned surgery after meeting the first transgender person in India who has completed Doctor of Philosophy, Manabi Bandyopadhyay. But transphobic society does not support their dreams. Puti is arrested and commits suicide by hanging herself with her towel inside the lock-up at a police station. Eventually, Madhu joins the same ghetto of eunuchs.

Meanwhile, shooting of Kaushik Ganguly’s next directorial Lokkhi Chele has started. He will be directing his son Ujaan for the first time.
