Video: Interview of Actor Sumit Samaddar
Actor Sumit Samaddar known for his comic timing will be again seen in a comic role in the upcoming Bengali film Abar Basanta Bilap. Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent caught up with the talented actor. Excerpts..
Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Tell us about the character you play in the film.
Sumit Samaddar- I play Ghonta da, the local goon in this film. He is a hooligan. But on the other hand, he helps the people in the locality whenever necessary. There are many shades in the character of Ghonta da. He is a humorous person who solves his works by doing comedy. The audience will enjoy watching the antics of Ghonta on screen.
There is chemistry between Ghonta and Dimpy da in the film. Can you throw some light on it?
Sumit Samaddar- Yes, there is a sweet chemistry between my character and Dimpy da played by Mir. Dimpy da is an effeminate character who avoids teaching male students. However he develops a liking to Ghonta da. What happens next? To know that, the audiences will have to watch the film!!
Audiences have a great experience of watching the yesteryear film Basanta Bilap. Now this film’s name has a part of the name. Was it challenging for you in any way?
Sumit Samaddar- No, this was not a challenge because the film is not a spin off or a sequel. There are some similarities like the name, neighborhood love and so on. Apart from that, the film is different. We all have lobed shooting the film and we hope the audience enjoys watching it.
How was the experience of shooting the film?
Sumit Samaddar- This is Ipshita and Rajesh’s second film after 61, Garpar Lane. I was a part of their first film too. That film was a serious one and this one is a comedy film. They have written a wonderful script and it was a great experience shooting this film. Our lives have become so full of tension and stress. With this film, the audiences will be able to relax and have some fun.
We too hope that the film does well at the box office. Wishing Sumit Samaddar and the team of Abar Basanta Bilap all the very best!!
