Sanjoy Nag while speaking with Sholoana Bangaliana Correspondent narrated how his late friend Rituparno Ghosh helped him with the selection of Rituparna Sengupta for Parapaar. “I was actually discussing the script with him and he suddenly gave a call to Rituparna and asked her to come and act in the film. It was an instant decision” said Sanjoy Nag. The director also added that the selection of the cast was made according to the needs of the script and not only for casting lead actors and actresses in his films.
The story of the film Parapaar is about Rudranath Chatterjee who comes back to his family consisting of his wife Damini and their two children after serving a jail sentence. He was alleged for committing the heinous crime of rape. What happens when he comes back home? How does his family react to his homecoming? All these questions are answered by the film.
Sanjoy Nag also added that he read the novel by Moti Nandy way back in 1998. On the first reading itself, he found cinematic elements in the film. This actually inspired him to make the film.
Made under the banner of Purti Entertainment Private Limited, the film has Paoli Dam, Ahmed Rubel, Bratya Basu, Rituparna Sengupta in pivotal roles.
The film is slated for release soon.
