It was selected for NDFC Lab, South Asia's largest film market collection, in 2019.

Soumyajit said working on the film was a lifetime experience for the entire cast and crew.

"The indomitable spirit of a dream team with the best of talents from Bollywood and Tollywood as part of an ensemble of more than 30 actors, a national and international award winning crew is the driving force behind making my first film.

"The love and passion of the misfits towards the film will reflect on screen. Reunions, friendships and comebacks have found a home in 'Homecoming'," Soumyajit said.

"Homecoming" also stars Tushar Pandey, Plabita Borthakur, Hussain Dalal and Soham Majumdar.

Borthakur, who has featured in "Lipstick Under My Burkha" and "Bombay Begums", said she was thrilled to be part of the film.

"I love the spirit of the film and the filmmakers. I was excited about it since I read the script and when it all came together it was beautiful. I love my character Nargis, she's a lot like me. I was little nervous about the poetry bit though".

According to the makers, "Homecoming" is a unique cosmopolitan film with the film featuring dialogues in Bengali, Hindi and English making it a film appealing to audiences across the country.
