An actress that the Bengali Film Industry can bank on and one who since her debut has been trying to experiment with different roles, Tollywood actress Subhasree Ganguly is ready with her New Kolkata Bengali Movie Game in which she stars opposite Jeet and sports the tough look of a boxer. Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent Priyanka Dutta in a candid chat with the Tollywood Diva got to know a lot about her character in the new Bengali Movie ‘Game’ and all the homework that she had to do in order to prepare for the role.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– Who is Subhasree in the New Bengali Movie Game?
Subhasree– I play the role of Trisha who is a college level boxer. She is a modern girl. She is selected by Anhimanyu’s parents as their future daughter-in-law. I will not reveal more than this as that will take the suspense away from this highly entertaining film.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– The Boxing bug seems to have bit the film industry big time and after Priyanka Chopra and Sonakshi Sinha‘s efforts at portraying the tough girl, the audience of Bengal will now get to see their ever so elegant Subhasree trying a similar stint, playing a Boxer in Game. How difficult was the experience of getting into the tough girl shoes?
Subhasree– It was very difficult physically and mentally. I used to really get stressed after some time. The lady who was brought in to teach me some of the stunts of this game often hit me as she did not understand how to act. Baba Jadav, the director of Game finally intervened and saved me from getting any more punches. Moreover, since people have seen the trailers of Holiday and thus Sonakshi’s role in it, I will leave it to them to judge my skills in a similar role.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– You have a very tom boyish look in this film as opposed to the other films in which you play the gorgeous girl who men drool over. is this new look absolutely in contrast to what the real Subhasree is?
Subhasree– I am a bit tom boyish by nature and this came quite naturally to me. Hence I did not have much problem playing this role. The only hitch and also a great learning experience was the boxing part.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– You have again been paired opposite superstar Jeet; how has been the experience of working with him so far?
Subhasree– Oh! That is simply fantastic. Jeet da and I share great chemistry which has been evident in our earlier films and will be evident in Game too. I am very comfortable working with him and this makes the scenes with him a cake walk for me.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– With whom did you enjoy working more- Ankush or Jeet?
Subhasree– It will be unfair to compare both of them. Ankush is of my age and we are good friends. Jeet da is a senior but I share great a rapport with him.
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana– What according to you is the USP of the film which will draw audiences to the theaters?
Subhasree– Great songs by Jeet Ganguly, the return of the team that worked in Boss and a great script are some of the reasons that I will cite for watching the film.
The New Kolkata Bengali Movie ‘Game’ is probably one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year and we wish the entire team that has already broken records at the Box Office before, the Very Best and hope that the movie turns out to be a Game changer in the realm of Commercial Bengali Films.
