Director Biography - Tapabrata Mukherjee

We, Tapabrata Mukherjee and Shreeja Bhattacharya, two amateur filmmakers are here to start our journey with a queer-noir film "The Forbidden". The storyline was primarily set by me, Tapabrata Mukherjee. Both I and Shreeja have created the screenplay for the film. This is our production debut as well.

I am thankful to each and every person, in front of the camera and behind, and to those who just cheered us all day long. This amateur film is a collective effort, where the published credit list falls short.
