Herogiri was promoted by Dev, Koel in Zee Bangla Channel.
Dev, Koel and others came in Zee Bangla Dadagiri Program to promote film Herogiri.
The entire team of Bengali film Herogiri came in Sourav Ganguly’s Dadagiri Program on 21st January, 2015. Actress Sayantani Banerjee, Bharat Kaul, and the script writer of the film came in the program.
Sourav Ganguly asked Dev about the experience of acting with Mithun Chakravarty in the film. Incidentally Mithun Chakravarty played the role of the father of Dev in the film. Dev said in reply that Mithun Chakravarty was one of the brightest international Bengali icon. He also said Mithun Chakravarty during the peak of his career he acted in Bengali films and restored the profits of the industry.
Sourav Ganguly asked Dev, Koel, Sayantani and others who is the boss in respect of film making, is it the director or the producer? All of them replied in the sets the actors, actresses follow the directives of the directors, in shooting zones and discussion relating to projects producers also play important role. This film Herogiri had been shot at different places including Kolkata, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Paris and Bangkok. When asked by Sourav Ganguly who dictates the actors fees, the actors or the producers, Dev and Koel gave reasonable answers. Whenever actors wanted to act in films of reputed directors they ignored the payment and acted with low remuneration also.

Dev became the champion at the end of the show. Sourav Ganguly gave his best wishes and told everyone to continue the good work.
