Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Tell us something about the character you play in Abyakto.
Anubhav Kanjilal- I play Indro in the film. Arpita di (Arpita Chatterjee) plays the role of my mother. The film is actually a tale of a mother and a son.
How was the working experience?
Anubhav Kanjilal– This is my third film and I am getting to work with so many big names in the industry. My acting has developed much in the process. I dreamt of working in a film which followed Ritu da’s (Rituparno Ghosh) style. And this film does that. So yes, it fulfils my dream to an extent.
Adil Hussain is also working in the film. How was working with him?
Anubhav Kanjilal- He is a very nice human being and an extremely talented actor. He improvised during scenes and that made us to improvise in our scenes too. He used to chat with us in between shots and tell us about how work is done in Bollywood and Hollywood. It has been an enriching experience working with him in this film.
Arpita Chatterjee plays your mother in the film. How was your experience of working with her?
Anubhav Kanjilal- I have a huge crush on her. When I heard she was playing the role of my mother, I was so happy. She is a great actress and an equally good human being. This has been a good experience.
I heard that you all are having great fun while shooting the film. Can you share with us some memorable incident that you had while shooting the film?
Anubhav Kanjilal- Everyone is putting in a lot of hard work and love in making the film. That is getting reflected in the work that we are doing. From the spot boys to the light man to the actors- everyone is giving their best. Hence there is a cordial atmosphere. I was telling someone the other day that since the shooting is going to end soon, I am feeling sad. I won’t be able to experience this anymore.
What is your expectation from the film?
Anubhav Kanjilal- I have watched very few films which have made me cry as an actor. There are some scenes in the film which have made me cry. I am not telling this because I am in the film. But that is the truth. People will be moved.
Wishing Anubhav all the best for Abyakto and his other projects!!
