The shooting of the upcoming Bengali film Sparsha-The Touch took place recently. Present at the shooting was director Sayantan Mukherjee, Lolita Chatterjee, Mafin and Manali Dey.
Sparsha – The Touch is a love story between two women set in the year 1957. Revati Nandini Roy, an upcoming poet of Bengali literature was leaving for Paris after her marriage. Just before her marriage she discovered her love and passion for her own cousin sister Madhubala but it was too late. Revati realized that she is going to miss Madhubala forever in her life as she going far away. After 55 years, this pre-lesbian saga revives again when one fine morning old Madhubala opened the door and found out Revati standing in front of her. It was Rini the granddaughter of Revati who came all the way from Paris to see her own root in Bengal. Her grandmother gave her a diary when she was in her death bed and told her to give it to Madhubala whenever she will visit India. Rini almost looked like her grandmother Revati. Madhubala is mesmerized. The fire of love and lust almost burns 82 year Madhubala inside out slowly makes her paranoid.
“I feel that Lolita Chatterjee is among the most under-rated actresses. She is such a brilliant performer. The industry did not use her fully. She is such a darling. Working with her is a wonderful experience” said director Sayantan Mukherjee.
Lolita Chatterjee (Old Madhubala), Mafin (Rini and Revati) and Manali Dey (Young Madhubala) will be seen in important roles in this film.
Speaking about her character, Manali said “I play the young Madhubala in the film. She is a tom boy. Depicting a tom boy in a sari is quite a challenge for me. the bigger challenge is to play the young version of Lolita Chatterjee who is a diva and looks good in front of the camera always. This is a great opportunity for me and I am putting in my best efforts to make the character look lively on screen”. The actress also added that the veteran actress Lolita Chatterjee was a darling on the sets of the film. She also mentioned having watched many films like Jay Jayanti in which Lolita Chatterjee acted.
The film has been produced by Sujay Mukherjee and Jay Prakash Sarkar. The editor is Ravi Ranjan Mitra and the DOP is Avijeet Nandy. The music has been composed by Shiladitya – Raj while the lyrics have been penned by Sreeraj Mitra.
