Film ‘Doob'(No Bed Of Roses) has finally been cleared for a theatrical release in Bangladesh despite earlier resistance from the country’s censor board.

The film, which made headlines in local and international newspapers due to its ‘ban’, has got the official nod today(8th August).

The movie directed by Mostafa Sarowar farooki, allegedly loosely based on late novelist and filmmaker Humayun Ahmed’s life, was earlier banned by the Bangladesh Information Ministry.

One of the top-notch directors of Bangladesh, Farooki denied that it’s a biopic repeatedly.

Indian actor Irrfan Khan has starred as the lead actor opposite Tisha.

The Bangladesh Film Development Corporation’s (BFDC) Joint Venture Preview Committee approved the script of the movie on March 8, 2016, after which the film went into production. The completed film was previewed for the BFDC on February 12, 2017, and received a No Objection Certificate on February 15. But just a day later, the BFDC sent the producers a letter stating that the certificate had been cancelled due to a letter from the Bangladesh Information Ministry.

Variety, a renowned magazine, claimed that the magazine have had access to the film and it starts with a disclaimer that the film has no resemblance to any real life characters alive or dead.

No Bed of Roses is a co-production between Bangladesh’s Jaaz Multimedia and India’s Eskay Movies with Irrfan’s IK Company as co-producer.
