Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaYou made a comeback with Anjan Dutt’s Ganesh Talkies. Why did you leave acting all of a sudden?

Pallavi Chatterjee– I did not completely leave acting. I was engaged in the production side of this profession. I also left the profession because I wanted to give more time to my family. Hence from being in front of the camera, I shifted to remaining behind the cameras.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaDo you regret the decision of leaving acting?

Pallavi Chatterjee– Yes to a certain extent! When I see the kind of films that are being made today, I regret the decision. But on the other hand, I got to understand the production side of the art of film making. This has enhanced my knowledge considerably and hence one can say that this is a fifty-fifty situation.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaWhat actually made you came back again to acting?

Pallavi Chatterjee– I realized after some time that becoming a producer was not my cup of tea. The stress was taking a toll on me and hence I decided to come back and start acting.  The kinds of films made today are completely different from the ones made earlier. I got many offers for roles which are different from the ones I got earlier. This motivated me and I changed my mind. Women centric roles are now available for the female actors which is a plus point.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana BangalianaYou had a string of releases recently like Ganesh Talkies, Bristi Bristi, Kencho Khurte Keute and so on. What other projects do you have in hand?

Pallavi Chatterjee– I have a few other projects in hand, the names of which I do not want to divulge right at the moment.
