Rimjhim Mitra and Nigel Akkara began shooting for an upcoming Bengali film Malobikar Kotha at Select House Kolkata. The film focuses on the rising number of divorces in the country.
Director duo Monojit Kar and Jhuma Paul has taken up this issue as the subject for this film. “Malobikar Kotha deals with the life of a common housewife, Malobika (played by Rimjhim) and his husband Aditya (Played by Nigel). Malobika is busy with her household chores while Aditya is busy with his office work. As a result they do not have time to share with each other. Moreover they are childless. This causes a rift between them and leads them to think of divorce. Whether they divorce or not is what the film is all about” said Monojit Kar. The reason for selecting Rimjhim is to break her image as a commercial actress. Nigel has been selected as the director duo wanted to break his image that has become dominant after the film Muktodhara.
In a red striped shirt, Nigel looked handsome. “This is a huge makeover for me. I play the role of Aditya who is a corporate guy. This is quite different from the roles that I have portrayed earlier. I just hope I am able to do justice to the role” said the actor.
The sequence which was shot had Malobika going to her best friend Komolika’s house where she and her husband are counseled. “This is the first time I will be sharing screen space with Nigel. I hope to have a great time at the shooting. Malobika is a very common character. You will come across such characters in your neighborhood and locality easily” revealed Rimjhim.
The film Malobikar Kotha has five songs. There is one Rabindrasangeet which has been used in this film as a montage. The other four songs in the film are Classical based songs. Popular Kolkata singers Rupankar and Somlata will be lending their voices to the songs. The trio of Kazi, Loy and Deep are the music directors of this film. The shooting of the film will be done in various parts of Kolkata.
Apart from Nigel and Rimjhim, Rajesh, Komolika Banerjee, Sunny Banerjee and Pratyusha Paul play important characters in this film.
