The location is Latigara police station. Mimi and Upo Gupta are escorted in police cars out of the station. The cars stop mid-way and the two alight from the cars. They hug each other before again returning to their respective cars. Before you rush to any conclusion; this is from the shooting of Aniket Chattopdhyay’s next comedy film Janla Diye Bou Palalo. This scene was being shot at Tollygunje Home when Sholoana Bangaliana’s team reached the sets.
“The film is about a common girl and a boy. The girl runs away from her marriage and the boy runs away from his home. This is followed by a series of comedy of errors. This is in short the story of this film. This is essentially a comedy film” said the director in between the shots. When asked why a comedy film again, Aniket Chattopadyay said “There is a trend in our industry where a person who does a film in a certain genre quite well is expected to make films always in that genre. Since I made a few films on comedy, producers expect me to make films on comedy only. No one expects me to make a political film or tragedy. Hence I am back again with a comedy”.
After having done a small part in Buddhadeb Dasgupta’s film “Anwar Ka Ajaab Kissa”, Amrita will be seen playing the role of Mimi in this film. “She is a bubbly and cheerful girl. A student of Presdiency University, she is immensely popular among her friends” said Amrita about her role.
Upo Gupta will be played by actor Arjun Chakraborty. “Upo Gupta is a studious boy. However his real passion lies in music. He lives and breathes music. To pursue his passion in this field, he runs away from home” said Arjun Chakraborty. With so many talented actors around who have excelled in their comic roles, Arjun felt that this will be a great learning experience for him as an actor.
With a cooking pan on his head, actor Lama looked funny. When asked about this strange attire, the actor said with a smile “This is simply for the look of the character. I play the role of a servant who is very funny. He speaks Oriya and is very cheesy at times”.
Patting his forehead and sipping water, Kharaj Mukherjee was seen on the sets finding means to beat the heat. He plays the role of a DG in this film. His real life name has been used as his screen name in the film. He is asked by his seniors to find Mimi. “By nature my character is a nervous freak. Hence when the seniors pressurize him and ask him to find the girl, he becomes dumb and confounded. To add to his misery, they even threaten to send him to remote places on jobs” said the actor.
Biswanath, Kanchan Mallick, Bhola Tamang, Biswajit Chakraborty, Sumit Ganguly, Shankar Chakraborty, Debranjan Nag are some of the other actors who will be seen in important roles in the film.
