Chintu Ka Birthday is a film with a diverse cast including Indian actors like Vinay Pathak, Tillotama Shome, and Seema Pahwa as well as international actors Reginald Barnes, Nathan Scholz, and Khalid Massou. This film is written and directed by the brothers Satyanshu and Divyanshu Singh. The film was 12 years in the making and never officially released in theatres. AIB, who were producers on Chintu Ka Birthday, did hold special screenings in late 2019, which were always sold out and was widely appreciated by the audiences.
This huge ‘underground’ film is finally making a digital premiere on ZEE5 on 5th June.
