Director Ram Kamal Mukherjee's 47-minute film, Seasons Greetings which is a tribute to Rituparno Ghosh, recently bagged an award at the New York festival for Indian films. The Hindi feature marks the comeback of Bollywood star Celina Jaitly Haag post her marriage and motherhood. Reportedly, the film revolves around a mother and daughter relationship. Earlier, the first look was released by Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan on the 56th birth anniversary of the late director Rituparno Ghosh who directed Raincoat starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Ajay Devgn.
Talking about paying homage to the late director and the reason behind him making the film, Ram Kamal told TOI, "Barring cine connoisseurs, none knew about his body of work. I always wanted to tell the mainstream audience that what a genius Rituda was. That's when I decided to pay homage to Rituparno Ghosh in my second film 'Season's Greetings'. Till date, my lead actor Celina Jaitly says, ‘Ram, trust me Rituda definitely blessed our film, it's loved by the universe.’"
"When I made 'Season's Greetings', people were curious to know why was it a tribute to Rituparno Ghosh? Some of my non-Bengali friends revisited his films on OTT platforms, some googled him and some read his biography. Rituparno was not only a director for his actors and technicians, he was a family member," he added.
