A film on late Bengali poet Jibanananda Das will soon begin shooting in Kolkata. Directed by Sayantan Mukherjee, the film will showcase the life of the poet. Though the life of the poet will be shown, it will not be in the traditional method of making the biopic.
Bratya Basu will be seen in the role of Jibanananda Das and Joya Ahsan will be seen in the role of Jibanananda’s wife. Ananya Chatterjee (Jibanananda’s mother), Debshankar Halder (Sajanikanta), Soumitra Chatterjee (Rabindranath Tagore) will be seen in pivotal roles in the film.
Bratya Basu, according to the director bears a resemblance to the late poet. Moreover the sense of poetry that Bratya Basu has will help in making the character believable.
With such a stellar cast, this film will make for an interesting project!!
