Film journalist and critic Ram Kamal Mukherjee who recently started working on his debut feature film, Cakewalk, announced his second venture, Season’s Greetings. His second film is a tribute to the late iconic filmmaker, Rituparno Ghosh. The first teaser poster of the film will be launched on the fifth death anniversary of the director on 30 May in Kolkata.

Mukherjee will reportedly address Ghosh’s inclination towards making socially relevant films in Season's Greetings.

In an interview with The Times of India, Mukherjee clarified, “It's not a biopic. I have interacted with Rituda on several occasions, in Kolkata and in Mumbai. Later we worked closely on his bilingual film Noukadubi, produced by Subhash Ghai. Whenever we met, we connected immediately. His sense of humour and eye for detailing would inspire me. I always wanted to tell a story on screen, and after Cakewalk, I decided to make a film that would reflect Rituda's sense and sensibility.”

Mukherjee is yet to disclose information regarding the cast of the film. Most of the film will be shot in various locations in Kolkata.

Mukherjee first earned accolades for his coffee-table book on Hema Malini, Hema Malini Diva Unveiled, in 2005. His upcoming feature Cakewalk features Esha Deol Takhtani, television actor Tarun Malhotra and Bengali actress Anindita Bose in the lead roles.
