Bedabrata Pain's upcoming project Chittagong has become the only
film ever to be shot inside the iconic Cellular Jail (Kaala Pani).
some filmmakers in the past have managed to shoot in the compound
and outside the jail, none of them ever managed to shoot inside
the jail premises.
it's not officially allowed to shoot inside the cellular jail, the
director and his team went inside with basic permission, where they
were allowed to take only one camera inside with minimum crew and
for just 15 minutes to shoot.
may be remembered that several famous freedom fighters were jailed
at the iconic location during India's struggle for Independence.
It is said that a very crucial part of the film has been shot
inside the same cell where Subhash Chandra Bose was kept.
Pain was accompanied by only four crew members during the shoot.
