Kolkata: For some celeb couple celebrating love is romancing away from prying eyes, and for some, it’s about just having dinner at a common city restaurant. And then, we have Dev, Tollywood’s common man superstar who loves to profess his love for his bae (Rukmini Maitra) in a completely different manner. And Dev’s recent adorable social media post for Rukmini surely made their fans go ‘aww’.
In 2020, one of the biggest news of Bengali cinema is Dev returning to SVF after the 2017 blockbuster Amazon Obhijaan. And it is Dhrubo Banerjee’s Golondaaj, where Dev plays Nagendra Prasad Sarbadhikari — the Father of Indian Football. In fact, Nagendra can be credited for setting up many football clubs in Kolkata. And today i.e. February 5, Golondaaj goes on the floor.
Interestingly, Rukmini also starts shooting today for her new Bengali film Switzerland with Abir Chatterjee. Rukmini is five- film-old (her last being Password), but this is the first time she is doing a movie that doesn’t star Dev (both as an actor and producer). Sauvik Kundu’s directorial debut Switzerland, on the other hand, is backed by another Tollywood superstar Jeet. In fact, Rukmini was supposed to act with Jeet earlier, but her dates didn’t work out.
So, just a day before Dev and Rukmini start shooting for their respective films, the Ghatal MP took to social media to share a photograph of the scripts of both Switzerland and Golondaaj. Now, what was more interesting and cute was the table cover on which the scripts were kept. Can anyone miss out on the ‘I Love You’ prints, which highlights the cover? And Dev came up with the most romantic caption for his lady love, “Story of our lives…All the best to Us for Tomorrow @rukminimaitra.”

Rukmini instantly tweeted, “Learning & Looking forward!” Rukmini will be shot in Kolkata and Switzerland, and Dev starts shooting for Golondaaj in the City of Joy. Golondaaj has Ishaa Saha as Dev’s wife and will release on August 14, 2020.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday morning, Dev took to Twitter to share the first look of his character — Nagendra. Sporting a punjabi, clean moustache, with a shawl wrapped round him, Dev looks every bit a suave Bengali.

On the other hand, Rukmini also shared the first look of her forthcoming film Switzerland. And this time, she can be seen having a ball with two kids and Abir on the poster as a flight takes off. “Embark on our journey to #SWITZERLAND !!! First Look! @itsmeabir @Sauvik_montage @JeetzFilmworks,” Rukmini tweeted.

Rukmini also congratulated Dev for all the hardwork he has put in for Golondaaj’s training. “Woooaahh!
May all the hard work, leg injuries, blood and sweat that you have put into this, bear you your desired fruits! All the best sweets.. Can’t keep calm for this one! #Golondaaj begins! ⚽️,” she posted.
