Here are some details about Ranu Mondal biopic

Social media holds immense power on today's time, it can raise someone to unreal fame and work oppositely as well. Last year, we saw the case of Ranu Mondal from West Bengal who shot to fame after a clip of her singing Lata Mangeshkar song ‘Ek Pyar Nagma Hai’ at a railway station got viral. Soon after this, playback singer Himesh Reshammiya recruited her tp sing a track for his film 'Happy Hardy and Heer'.

However, Ranu was trolled severely by toxic netizens for her appearance and she soon faded away from limelight. Now a movie based on her life is in development with Eshika Dey playing the lead role and Hrishikesh Mondal being the director. Talking about the film, Eshika said, "We are shooting mostly in Ranaghat, Kolkata and parts of Mumbai. It will be partly done in real-life locations....The film plan has been through a lot. It was initially planned in 2019 then 2020 happened and the lockdown was there. Now it’s being made in Hindi instead of Bengali. This time they approached me and I really had no idea. It was Shomin Ghosh who approached me and that's it!"

About her preparation for the part, Eshika said, "I need to relate myself with Ranu’s past life, which we are going to be focusing more on. To translate the story of a person who has been sitting on a station platform for 12 long years and singing-begging and then suddenly her video goes viral! While she does become a social media star but later she faced criticism and adversity due to certain comments. Without getting into a debate about what was right and what wasn’t, we are trying to portray what a person can go through psychologically after experiencing so much in life."
