Sannyasi Raja is being shown in this month’s Ek Masher Golpo on Aakash Aath. The story is about Suryakishore Roychowdhury who is a Zamindar of Devipur. He lost his father at a young age. His passion includes horse race and hunting. Dr. Mahitosh Dasgupta is the family physician of the Zamindar. Rani’s jewelry gets stolen. What happens next?
“Given the similarity in the name, audiences will be comparing with the film which starred Uttam Kumar. But I will like to point out that we have not copied from the film. All the incidents shown in the film are based on facts. For example, the doctor made Kusum pregnant. Hence she was killed by him. But in the film it was shown that she committed suicide. Hence, you can see that we have stuck to actual facts. The audiences will come to know about many new facts that we also got to know during the research” said director Shibangshu Bhattacharya.
The script and dialogue is by Amit Moitra. Camera has been handled by Shubhendu Mandol. The music has been scored by Debjit Roy.
Boni who plays the role of the Rani in the serial said “I had seen the film when I was small. Before the shooting began, I again saw the film”. Raaj (earlier worked in serials like Milontithi, Raikishori, Aachal) who plays the role of the doctor avoided watching the film before the shooting as he was afraid that he may unknowingly copy the mannerisms of the actor who played the role of the doctor in the film.
Late actor Pijush Ganguly was playing the role of the Zamindar. But due to his sudden death in a road accident, the shooting was stalled. “We had many setbacks. Apart from the untimely death of Pijush, we also had a huge chunk of out shooting at Jhargram Rajbari being deleted. This has however made us even more determined to shoot the project and complete it. And with everyone’s help and support, we have done it” said the director.
The cast consists of Chandranibha Mukherjee, Boni Mukherjee, Shubhashis Mukherjee, Suman Banerjee, Satyapriya Sarkar, Mou Bhattacharya, Raaj Bhattachara, Smritika Majumder, Asmee Ghosh, Sourabh Saha and others.
The shooting of this story has been done at Belgachia Rajbari, Baruipur Rajbari, Jhargram Rajbari, Bhawanipur Ghosh Bari and some parts have been shot in parts of Darjeeling.
Sannyasi Raja will be shown from Monday to Saturday on Aakash Aath at 7pm.
