Shyam Benegal's film Mujib: The Making Of A Nation's trailer was launched at the 75th Cannes Film Festival. The 90-second trailer received special attention at the Indian Pavilion.

India's Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur and his Bangladeshi counterpart Hasan Mahmud were at the event.

Mujib tells the story of the founder of Bangladesh, Sheikh Mujibur Rahman. The veteran filmmaker could not attend the event and shared a video message noting that Mujit is the first Indo-Bangladesh co-production.

This is a very important film because I personally think that I got the opportunity to work with some of the best actors of the subcontinent. Sheikh Mujibir was an extraordinary person, said the director. He added that Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was someone with a middle-class background and lived a simple life. "He had a burning ambition that helped him create Bangladesh''.

The Bangladeshi politician Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was fondly called Mujib. He is regarded as the Father of the Nation of Bangladesh. While held up in a prison in West Pakistan during the liberation war, he was named the President of the Provisional Government of Bangladesh, with Syed Nazrul Islam serving as Acting President on his behalf.

Upon returning to his country, he was sworn in as the Prime Minister. He served the country until his assassination and his political views are collectively known as Mujibism.

The Indian-Bangladeshi Bengali-language film's trailer was released on YouTube after being launched at Cannes.
