Trishna has been tremendously popular and flooded with Rituparna’s stills from the movie over the internet and newspapers and TV. However, the West Bengal Film Publicity Act rejected the public presentation of some movie posters of Trishna. The West Bengal Film Publicity Act is basically a local body who gives clearance for films to be released in West Bengal only. Such act does not exist in any other Indian States. Trishna was all set to release at the end of 2008 but even in January 2009, it is still waiting for it’s destiny.
