“When I was offered the role, I could not believe that I will be actually playing a character based on him on screen. This is a dream come true for me. I have always watched his films during my growing up years and now to actually lip sync with some of the evergreen songs is very fulfilling for me as an actor. However the character also has traces of my father too” said Tollywood actor Prosenjit Chatterjee at the press conference of the upcoming Star Jalsha serial Mahanayak.
Some of the other eminent personalities spotted at the press conference included Tanushree, Abir Chatterjee, Priyanka Sarkar, Saheb Bhattacharya, Kanchan Mullick, Padmanabha Dasgupta and others.
Ace director Birsa Dasgupta is the director of this serial. The director revealed that a team consisting of six members and headed by ace director Kamaleswar Mukherjee have done the research for the film. The set, costume and the feel of that era has been recreated with the help of Kamaleswar and the team’s research on the period.
Paoli Dam who is making a comeback to the small screen with this serial is excited to play a role inspired by matinee idol Suchitra Sen. “I will not say that the character is completely based on Suchitra Sen’s life. Sucharita, the character that I play is a glamorous heroine of the 60’s” said the actress.
Mahanayak starts from 27th June on Star Jalsha.
