Simultaneously, an exhibition was organised to showcase the “Debi” collection by renowned fashion designer, Biplob Shaha's Bishwo Rong, Debi's wardrobe partner.
Jaya Ahsan proved that she is not only a versatile actor but also a confident and visionary producer. Emphasising on the sound design of the film she said, “The sound has been designed for a theatrical experience. I urge everyone to watch the film on the big screen to enjoy it fully.” She also shed light on spreading awareness against piracy.

At the event, Chanchal Chowdhury, back-brushing his hair with his left hand, spoke out the famous dialogue “Bepar ta bojha dorkar,” which was met with cheers and applause from the audience. He shared his experience with Humayun Ahmed and said that he thinks that Misir Ali reflects the writer himself.
