Randeep Hooda who played the role of Charles in the film lamented the fact that the team of Main aur Charles should have been in Kolkata before. He also felt that the viewers in the city will be more appreciative of the film.
Randeep Hooda who described the life of Charles Sobhraj as entertaining and larger than life said “The film has been made in such a way that the audiences will have to pay attention to the film. The starting of the film confuses them, then the facts are set up and in the second half, the problem is solved. This is a unique way of narrating the life of this enigmatic man”.
Kolkata boys Sougat Upadhyay and Subhradeep Das who are part of the rock band Bally Grunge have composed the two tracks of the film namely Ya Rabba and Jee Lo Yaaron. Randeep Hooda was highly appreciative of their efforts and said “They have done a great job. Both the songs help in showcasing the Hippie life. The audience likes the song which is also great”. The duo sang a few lines from the songs at the press meet too.
Randeep also shared his experience of meeting the actual Charles Sobhraj. “He was actually happy with Main aur Charles. He also mentioned that he wanted to stop us from making the film. But we had Amod Kanth (the inspector who arrested Sobhraj) on our side, so he let it go. He liked my portrayal of him in the film”.
Main aur Charles is not a biopic on Charles, revealed the director Prawaal Raman. “It is more of how the man was and the mental games he played that we have shown in the film. There is no gore in the film” added the director.
Main aur Charles is running in many theatres in the city. If you haven’t watched it, make sure you watch it to experience the hypnotism and enigmatic personality of Charles Sobhraj!!
