Tollywood actor Indrasish Roy who has earlier assisted director Tathagata Banerjee worked with him for the first time in the upcoming Bengali film Mandobasar Galpo. Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent’s exclusive chat with the young actor!! Excerpts..


Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Your association with Tathagata Banerjee goes a long way back. How was it shooting a film with him?

Indrasish Roy- Well, this is a good experience actually. When I worked under him, I was exposed to the film sets for the first time. I was so excited. I was an observer in his film. I did not have any idea about films. It was under him that I gained knowledge about films. I expressed my wish to become an actor to him. He said that at that moment it was not possible but he allowed me to be on his sets and observe. That helped me a lot. The life of an actor is like a script. See in his second film, I finally got the chance to work with him. This has indeed being a good journey.

Tell us something about the character you play in the film.

Indrasish Roy- I play Rick in the film.  There is a film within the film and I play an actor in it. I am a musician too. Hence this is indeed an interesting role. With such great actors like Koushik Sen, Paoli, Parambrata around me, the experience was very good. I got a lot of help from them.


You know the director from before. Has that been an advantage or disadvantage for you? Were you scolded by him?

Indrasish Roy- Yes, I did receive a bit of a scolding from him. It felt good actually because apart from my parents, no one scolds me now. If I am late, they just tell me please don’t be late the next day. But it felt good to know that he cared about me so much as to scold me. You can only scold the person you love and care about.

Finally, with such a good story and a good cast, what are your expectations from the film?

Indrasish Roy- As always I am positive that the film will do well. With such a good concept, the film will definitely strike a chord with the audience. Let’s see what happens. Keeping my fingers crossed!!

Wishing Indrasish all the best for Mandobasar Galpo!!
