Popy will play Parbati, Ferdous will play Devdas, Shahnoor will play Chandrabaty, Anisur Rahman Milon will play Gohar, Mousumi Hamid will play Rajlaxmi, Toma Mirza will play Achala, Nirob will play Mohim and Prakriiti will play Kamal Lata in the upcoming film.

‘I have always wanted to play a character like Parbati on the silver screen. I will try to deliver my best performance,’ Popy told
New Age.
Shahnoor said, ‘I never thought that I would be playing Chandrabaty in a film one day. I am really excited and I am preparing myself to enact the
character.’
