Video: Bengali Film Tuski Promotion

Film makers have always been trying new ways of promoting their films. Filmmaker Aniket Chattopadhyay took up a new way of promoting his upcoming Bengali film Tuski. With the help of some stage actors, the whole film was enacted in the span of seven minutes. This will not only help in promoting the film but also in arousing curiosity among the audience about the film.

“This is one of the oldest concepts in Indian cinema. When Dadasaheb Phalke made Harishchandra, he took all the characters on a cart and took them to places for live performances. Since I do not have a lavish budget to spend on promotion of the film, I have resorted to this technique. This will help in letting the people know that I have made such a film” said the director.

The director also added that these performances will be done in front of halls like Jaya, Mitra, Navina and others. Since these kinds of performances will not be allowed in multiplexes, the team is sticking to the single screens in the city.

The music of the film is by Savvy. Kanchana Moitra, Rajesh Sharma, Priyanka, Kharaj Mukherjee will be seen in pivotal roles in the upcoming Bengali film.

The film is slated for release on 4th November.

Can you tell us something about the role you play in the film?

Ankita Chakraborty- I play Damayanti, one of the prime suspect in Byomkesh o Chiriakhana. I won’t reveal much about it now as that will take away the suspense from it. I know many have read the story and they will know it. For those who have not read it yet, let it be a surprise.

How was the experience of working with Anjan Dutt again?

Ankita Chakraborty- The experience was good. He is a good director and the fact that he is such a new individual everyday is what amazes me. The films on Byomkesh are getting good response, which is also a positive thing for the team that works on the project.

Have you read the story or seen the film that was made on this story years ago?

Ankita Chakraborty- I have not read the story but I have seen the film. Anjan da said that if I had not read the story, then I do not have to read it for the film. The script follows the story only and slight changes are made. Hence following the script is enough.

You have acted in some detective films now. Given a chance, will you like to play the role of a woman detective in the future?

Ankita Chakraborty- Well, I have not yet received any such role. But yes, I like experimenting with characters I play onscreen. If I am given such a role, I will surely give it a try.

Many actresses are trying their luck in Bollywood. Have you given it a thought?

Ankita Chakraborty- I have a wish of doing roles in Bollywood films. I will try too. Roles which will suit me and my personality are the ones which I will do in the films.

A very cliché yet an important question- What are your expectations from the film, Byomkesh o Chiriakhana?

Interview: Actress Swastika Mukherjee on Playing Bibi in Pratim D Gupta’s Shaheb Bibi Golaam

Swastika-Mukherjee-hot-picture

She is well known for her portrayal of bold and strong women characters on-screen. She will be next seen playing a housewife in director Pratim D Gupta’s thriller Shaheb Bibi Golaam. Actress Swastika Mukherjee was engaged in an avid conversation by Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent at the trailer launch event of the film. Excerpts..

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Judging by the trailer, we see a little different housewife on screen. What will you like to say about the character?

Swastika Mukherjee- I simply do not want to use the words like strong or bold to define the character of Jaya in the film Shaheb Bibi Golaam. Yes, this is a different character- one that I have not played before. At this stage of my career, why will I select a weak character? This is indeed a strong character in that sense. Jaya is a normal next door housewife but she has different shades. This is unlike something that I have even attempted beforehand.

How did you prepare yourself for the role?

Swastika Mukherjee- I did not do any preparations as such. I just did rehearsals for the dance movements as I was not familiar with those. I just had seen them on television beforehand. Pratim did give me some references to check out. I thought I would faint by seeing those. I have tried to do my very best. Let’s see how the audience likes my performance.

Swastika-Mukherjee-Interview

Every character that you have played had given a message. Is there any message that your character in the film will be giving to the audience?

Swastika Mukherjee– My character talks about emancipation and liberation. As a woman, it speaks about saying out about the desires which may be sexual or emotional. It also highlights on the coming out of a woman from the taboos inflicted on her. Look when a woman uses slangs, it turns the heads of many people. When I speak slangs for a role, people start thinking with whom they will go to the hall to watch the film. They cannot take their mother or wife for such films. But when a male actor like Prosenjit Chatterjee uses slangs in Baishe Srabon, the same group of people claps and whistles at the halls. Hence with the help of this character, it is shown that it is not wrong when a married woman speaks about her inner sexual needs.

You are working with Pratim for the first time. How was the experience?

Swastika Mukherjee- Well, he is a new director but since I know him beforehand I did not have any problems. I did not have to think that how is he as a person or how he will be instructing us. Since I knew him, it helped me during the shooting very much.

Swastika-Mukherjee-Shaheb-Bibi-Golaam

How did you bag the role?

Swastika Mukherjee- I got a call from Pratim even before he decided about the casting of the other characters. But this does not mean that I have huge home work for the film. I never do for any of my films. I read the script, listen to the director and then formulate my ideas about how the character should be portrayed. I did the same for this film. The only thing I practiced was the dance.

What are the other projects that you are working on?

Swastika Mukherjee- I have worked in Aniket Chattopadhyay’s film based on the sleuth Kiriti where I play an Anglo-Indian woman and there is another film named Headlines.

Wishing Swastika Mukherjee all the best for Shaheb Bibi Golaam and we hope that she continues to do such bold and strong roles in future!!
