What makes it even more special reveals Chaudhuri was that he had launched the poster of the film at the Cannes two years back, brining the movie to a full circle. He states, “The highlight of the launch in Cannes is that I launched the poster of this film two years back at Cannes itself. And now the trailer will also be launched there on May 22 around 7:30 pm (IST)”.

Chaudhuri’s signature style of storytelling is reflected through the narrative of the trailer where the viewers are immersed in a world, where the dark and light converges welcoming introspection, contemplations and challenging norms. Complete with mystery, emotion and social commentary, The Zebras- Dark Start has left a lasting impression on the audience who are now in anticipation of the movie to release.
