Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- So how was the transformation from Satyabati to Durga?

Sohini Sarkar- I am an actress and it is my job to get into the skin of any character that is given to me. We get the time to do research and it is in this way that we become the character that we showcase on screen. With the grace of Ma Durga, I have been able to do the role as Arindam da wanted me to do.

Tell us something about Durga..

Sohini Sarkar- She is a simple girl who comes to the family to look after a member. In the process, she becomes a part of the family. How she becomes the savior of the family is what one will come to know when they will watch the film.


You have worked with Arindam Sil before. How was the experience of working with him again?

Sohini Sarkar- Even the people who dislike Arindam da or even his enemy will not say that they did not like working with him. I am his friend and hence it has been a pleasure to work with him in this film. Good food, fun on the sets ensured that the shooting was memorable for everyone. I even cooked fish one day on the sets (laughs out loud).

What are your expectations from the film?

Sohini Sarkar- This is a family film with no adult scenes. One can go with the family and enjoy the film. Added to that is the fact that the backdrop has Durga Puja which is so much loved by the audience. Hence I hope that the people will like the film.

Wishing the feisty actress all the best for Durga Sohay!!
