Interview: Actor Subrat Dutta on his New Bollywood Hindi Film Tevar, Experience of working with Popular Bollywood Stars and More


Actor Subrat Dutta who has been capturing the eyes of the audience with his stellar performances in many Bollywood and Tollywood films is gearing up for his first release in the year 2015. A quick chat with the talented actor about his first release of 2015, Tevar (releasing on 9th January) which also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Arjun Kapoor…

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Can you throw some light on the role that you play in Tevar?

Subrat Dutta– The character I have played in Tevar is Kaakdi. He is a Bahubali from Mathura and also a very colorful character. Kaakdi always stays with Gajender Singh, played By Manoj Bajpai. It is a negative role and also the length of the role is far better than my last releases like BHOOTNATH RETURNS, ROAR and SHAUKEENS. But yes Kaakdi also got the opportunity to show his own Tevar with Arjun, Sonakshi & Manoj. In TEVAR you will also feel same. I will not reveal more than this now.


How was the experience of sharing screen space with Arjun and Sonakshi? How are they as Co-actors?

They are very good human beings-Arjun, Sonakshi and Manoj. Arjun and Sonakshi are the new generation stars. So the hunger is there to do the best in every shot. As we were shooting in real locations like Agra , Mathura (on roads, market, bus stops) with direct sounds, it was really tough for them(as we know they have a huge fan following. This was actually tough for the whole team but nobody ever complained. You can see the result when you watch the promo. Arjun on the last day during a ‘party’ said that he really appreciated my approach towards the character of  Kaakdi. He used to be an AD (Assistant Director) before acting. Again during the promo launch Arjun told me “Hey Subrat- Sonakshi loved your character in SHAUKEENS too much and she laughed a lot in many scenes”. So you know it is because they are good human beings that they appreciate my work so much and do not show any airs.

How was Boney Kapoor as the producer of the film?

“Boney sir toh kamal hi hai..!!” He is like a Royal producer. If a director needs a car he will provide a BMW. He has no baggage as a producer or as a film maker. Once I missed the flight from Mauritius to Mumbai and I apologized. He just gave me a smile and said he was the producer and I must say sorry to the director. I know it can happen with anybody. He is always a relaxed person. Sanjay Kapoor is also a producer of TEVAR. As “Tevar” is a film with Arjun in the lead, Boney sir has umbilical attachment with TEVAR.

How was Amit Sharma as the director?

Amit ji is a fantastic director. We all know he was an assistant with Pradeep Sarkar, so his detailing in every frame is similar to Pradeep da. He is a very sensible guy and his way of presentation of any content has uniqueness. If you watch his “Google” Advertisement you will understand. His passion for ‘films’ is great! Amit ji always tries to capture the organic reactions of actors in any situations and so the scenes automatically become very normal, very real. He will be a top listed director very soon.


Can you share some experiences of shooting Tevar?

I think the toughest thing for the whole team was to shoot in real locations (that too in small cities) with sync sound. But yes to act with Manoj bhai, who is a brilliant actor- was an experience. I enjoyed a lot. Even during making, Manoj ji praised me a lot. Recently the editor who was editing his interviews told me so. And yes another tough job was to shoot in 43 degree temperature, wear sweater in Mathura and look normal before camera for the whole day. (Laughs out loud)

Tevar is your first big release this year. How excited are you about this film? What are your expectations from this film?

Yes, I am really excited because it is a big film with big star casts. Already the songs and promos are doing well. And I have a very good role in this film too. I am expecting a lot from this film because the release time is also very perfect. One day during shooting Amit ji told me in front of the writer that I acted as Kaakdi exactly as they visualized Kaakdi. Amit always compliments me(An actor always feels very happy when the director appreciates his work. This is a commercial film and I hope it will do good business. Keeping my fingers crossed though!!


Tevar means attitude. How will you describe your personal Tevar?

I have my personal Tevar, but I cannot always show it. But yes as Kaakdi, the director gave me an opportunity to show my attitude to the fullest.

What are the next films that you will be seen in this year? Do you have Bengali films lined up this year too?

In Hindi, there are seven independent films in which I play the lead or second lead. They have already completed shooting for these films. One of them is KAPHAL(wild berries)which won best children’s film (National Award, Golden Lotus) in 2013. The other releases include Aasma, Kaphal, Oass or Round figure.

In Bengali I have completed shooting for three films. One is “DOTARA” directed by Amitabha Dasguta, “PAKARAM” and “CUT IT” directed by Sankar Debnath.

Lastly, do you have any New Year resolutions?

Not really!! I do not have any particular resolution but I will definitely try to act in good films, which will eventually release. As you know, doing films which never release is very painful. In 2015, I will first look after the script   then the “Release part” before I sign a film.

We wish Subrat Dutta all the best and hope his films in the year 2015 earn him critical and mass applause.

Bollywood Hindi Movie Gunday ‘s Kolkata Connection: Movie Peview

After the December release Dhoom 3, starring Aamir Khan and Abhishek Bachchan, Prestigious Bollywood Production House Yashraj Film’s newest action flick has been titled as ‘Gunday’.  To add to the delights for the Kolkata audience, New Bollywood Hindi Movie Gunday will also be dubbed in Bengali.

In August 2012, Director Ali Abbas Zafar revealed that the film is titled Gunday and set in 1970’s where Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor play gangsters by the name of Bikram and Bala. Both Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor debuted with the banner of Yash Raj Films in Band Baja Baraat and Ishqzaade respectively.

Gunday is about two protagonists, who appear in action during the most turbulent times in the history of Calcutta, from 1971 to1988. Both the central characters Bikram and Bala rose from being small time wagon breakers and coal thieves to becoming the biggest and most powerful black marketing underworld dons. A rare combination of boldness and wit, the two were inseparable & the city of Calcutta swore by their friendship. As their notoriety became the stuff of legends, the People of this sprawling city started calling these two carefree rebels.‘ Gunday’.

Director Ali Zafar also commented that both the lead actors will be seen as Bengali’s in the film. They have been undergoing the stiffest of physical trainings to authenticate their respective characters as underworld dons. Cerebral Actor Irrfan Khan has been selected for the role of an Intelligence agent in the film and will play a ‘larger than life’ character in the film and another strong character actor Sushant Singh, has played a cameo in New Bollywood Hindi Movie Gunday. The film was primarily shot in Mumbai in the YRF studio & followed by long schedule in the city of joy, our own beloved Kolkata.  During shooting in Kolkata, some old native professionals were hired to create the set for a Durga Puja song sequence under Howrah Bridge to give it a realistic look of 1980’s. The film unit has been shooting at Khottadih Colliery area, Durgapur subdivision of Eastern Cold fields Limited.

Four persons, including three crew members, on their way to the shoot were injured when the Toyota Innova they were traveling in collided head-on with a truck on NH-2 near Bansra in Raniganj police station area. The truck driver escaped but both the vehicles had been seized. The production team turned back to Mumbai for the shoot after finishing schedule in Kolkata. Priyanka Chopra will be seen doing a Cabaret number in the movie keeping a vintage image. For the knowledge of our readers, Bappi Lahiri has worked for Yash Raj Films for the very first time in his illustrious career as the Music Composer of mainstream Bollywood movies.  Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra will be seen as the leading lady of Gunday and she has also performed a special cabaret dance for the film.

Ranveer Singh’s last two releases Lootera and Ram-Leela have received immense critical applauds from all sectors of  the Indian film industry whereas Arjun Kapoor’s last film ‘Aurangzeb’ did not perform that well at the box office but he has been chosen to play the lead in the Mr. India sequel alongside uncle Anil Kapoor and step mom Sridevi. Nevertheless Gunday is going to be a very crucial film for both the heroes and of course for the gorgeous Priyanka Chopra as well.
