'Athhoi': Captivating teaser of Arna Mukhopadhyay's adaptation of Shakespeare's 'Othello' unveiled

Kolkata/IBNS: The captivating teaser of Arna Mukhopadhyay's adaptation of William Shakespeare's Othello was unveiled by the makers- Jio Studios and SVF Entertainment- on Wednesday.

Capturing the essence of Shakespeare's exploration of human emotions, 'Athhoi' promises to be a compelling portrayal of love, deception, and rivalry in a modern setting.  

The teaser opens with the chilling line, "Every individual harbours animosity towards one another," setting the tone for a narrative that intricately weaves together themes of honesty and love against a backdrop of intrigue and ambition.

In this adaptation, Sohini Sarkar breathes life into the spirited and intelligent character of Diya, reminiscent of Desdemona, while Director Arna Mukhopadhyay brings depth and complexity to the role of Dr. Athhoi Lodha (Othello).

Anirban Bhattacharya takes on the enigmatic character of Gogo, echoing the Iago from Shakespeare's original work, and serves as the creative director of the film.

Arna Mukhopadhyay remarked, "With 'Athhoi,' our aim is to delve deep into the complexities of human emotions and present a modern interpretation of Shakespeare's timeless tale.

"Through this film, we hope to engage and provoke audiences, sparking conversations about love, jealousy, and ambition in today's world."  

The film will release in theatres on June 14.
