The shooting of the upcoming Bengali film Chokbaaz was in progress at a city hotel. Present at the shooting was Saswata Chatterjee, Mumtaz Sorcar, Apurba and director Ritabrata Bhattacharya.
Speaking about the content of the film, director Ritabrata Bhattacharya said “Chokbaaz is a film which showcases the manipulations that happens in all sections of the society. This happens in politics, education, films, family and so on. This is what has been highlighted in the film. Saswata Chatterjee’s character in the film does all these manipulations. The scene that we are shooting today is how Apu da’s character meets Kolkata’s Shakira Nayantara”.
Mumtaz Sorcar who is playing the role of Nayantara said “We are having so much fun while shooting the film. When you have Apu da, Kharaj da together, you know what to expect. I am giving the shot and then I am bursting out laughing my guts out. Nayantara is a small role but I found it interesting so I said yes to it. She is an item dancer and is known as Kolkata’s Shakira”.
Apurba plays the role of Chapta, the driver of the character played by Saswata Chatterjee. “I have been receiving offers to do films but I have rejected them. This film is not a copy and I found the story to be interesting. I have always been interested in films where I can showcase my acting skills. And this is one such film. The shoot has been going well and I hope the audience likes it when the film releases” said the actor.
Touted as a darkcomedy, the film has Ambarish, Kharaj Mukherjee in important roles. The film has four songs and four music composers will be handling the music of the film.
The shooting of the film will be done in various parts of Kolkata. The film is expected to release before Durga Puja 2017.
