Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent caught up with the actress in an exclusive chat at Genuine Broaster Chicken outlet at Sector-5, Salt Lake. Excerpts..


Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Since you have worked with Buddhadev Dasgupta before, how was the working experience this time in Tope?

Ananya Chatterjee- It is always an enriching experience to work with Buddhadev Dasgupta. He is a storehouse of knowledge. I have worked with him before and learnt so many things. And now again I have learnt so many things!! He makes us all feel like family on the sets and that gives a warm feeling to all the cast and crew members.

Tell us something about the character that you play in Tope?

Ananya Chatterjee- I play the role of Rekha. She has nothing in her life. The only connection with the outer world is with the help of her binoculars. She sees the world in the way she likes it. She is an amazing and interesting character and only Buddha da could have thought of such a character. This character was not there in the original story. This is an innovation on the part of the director.


Can you share some memorable incidents from the sets of the film?

Ananya Chatterjee- Every scene is memorable. The passion and energy with which he works is amazing. That transfers to us also. He thinks a lot about every shot which is something worth noticing. My character does not have much dialogues and it relies more on silence. He always thought twice before taking a shot as he wanted to take the best angle to accentuate the silence.

What is your message to the audience?

Ananya Chatterjee- The film has been well received at the various film festivals. Now the film is going to release in Kolkata. I am requesting the audience in the city to go and watch the film at the halls and support us. Without their support and love, the film will not be able to achieve success.

Wishing the feisty actress all the best for Tope!!
