Director Abhirup Ghosh is back again with an anthology film Rahasya Romancho Series. The film is actually a tribute to Bengali pulp literature. Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent caught up with actor Arnab Bhattacharya who plays an important role in this film. Excerpts..
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Tell us something about your role in the film.
Arnab Bhattacharya- I won’t reveal much about the character as that will take away the mystery. I play the role of a hotel employee. The role is small but noticeable and significant. He gets in a bad situation and what he does to get out of the situation will be what the audience can look forward to.
How did this role come your way?
Arnab Bhattacharya- Well I knew Abhirup for quite a long time. One day I was talking with him and it is then that he said that I would have to do this role in his film.
What changes have you found in Abhirup as the director?
Arnab Bhattacharya- Well, he has matured as a director. Ankit Sengupta, the DOP who has assisted with him earlier was the DOP in this film too. He also has matured with the passing of time.
Can you tell us some memorable moments from the shooting of the film?
Arnab Bhattacharya- Well, the shooting experience was good. This is my first work with Priyanka Sarkar and she is extremely co-operative. Biswanath Basu is the other actor with whom I have enjoyed working in this film. Despite being such popular actors, they are humble and never throw tantrums.
What is your expectation from this film?
Arnab Bhattacharya- My part of the film is that of a psycho-thriller. Abhirup has studied thrillers and he has made the film with much perseverance. I hope that the film will be liked by the audience.
Wishing Arnab Bhattacharya all the best for this upcoming Bengali film!!
