Being the first erotica of Bengali film, 'Khawto' has already become the topic of debates and discussions. While the film has garnered rave reviews from some critics, the viewers are having mixed reactions on the same. "We were aware of this polarization. Therefore we delayed the film for ten years," said Prosenjit Chatterjee, who plays a lecherous novelist in the movie. His character even gave his co-star Raima a huge shock. However, both Raima and Paoli told they were comfortable in doing their respective parts in the movie.
