Filmmaker Rima Das is facing severe fund crunch to promote her Oscar-bound movie ‘Village Rockstars’. The movie was earlier named the country’s official entry into the Oscars besides having won the national film award for best film.
The fim needs around Rs 5 crore for promotion ahead of the 91st academy awards and that the filmmaker and the cast and crew of the movie are desperately trying to get the required sum of money.
Rima has now appealed to the people to support her movie and contribute monetarily so that she can start the movie’s promotion in an aggressive way.
On the other hand, although the Assam Government had announced Rs 1 crore for the movie’s promotion, the award-winning filmmaker who is touring various places in connection with the movie’s promotion is yet to receive the entire amount.
People who are interested in joining the fund campaign can donate their contributions at the fimmaker’s bank (Axis Bank, Andheri West, Mumbai) account number 915010045287396.
