The film is directed by national and international award winning film director Dhananjoy Mandal, who is looking for a teenage Santali girl for the lead role in the film who will play Baha.
The film revolves around the girl who grows up facing all the social problems including eve teasing, political issues, Maoists, backward caste etc., said, Dhananjoy Mandal.
Addressing a press conference at Kala Mandir in Bistupur on Friday, Mandal further said, auditions for artists will be held at Media Mantra Acting Academy, Outer Circle Road, near Kantilal Gandhi Hospital on August 13 from 9 am to 5 pm.
