Raja Chanda mentioned that the film’s story is the main highlight of the film. It is different from the films that he is actually known for making. Shooting of the film has already been done in Kalimpong. Some parts will be shot in Kolkata, Bolpur and in Bangalore.

Speaking in between shots, Soham said “The character that I play is a reserved character. His father is the postmaster. He is a very calm individual. This is all I will tell about the role at the moment”.

Soham had worked with Subhasree before. While commenting about getting paired up yet again, the actor said “She has matured immensely as an actress. This is amazing. I am working for the first time with Priyanka and she is also good. Ayindrita did the film Bachchan and now she is doing this film. She is also a bundle of talent”. This is his fifth film with the director and the actor said that he now knew him better and the working chemistry is fantastic. “I can wholly understand when he wants me to laugh or be serious” added the actor.

Kolkata-Photography-Exhibition

Process TheatreZ, Mumbai “ISOLATION” – A solo photography show by Nazia Khan was inaugurated by ace cinematographer Ranjan Palit, documentary film maker Supriyo Sen and senior journalist Dr. Shoma A Chatterjee at Chitrakoot Art Gallery.

The Series premiered at Honeycomb Art Gallery, Bangalore on 19th August, 2016. The Second Edition of ISOLATION Series is being held in Kolkata which will be soon followed by Goa, Pune and Mumbai.

 Isolation-Nazia-Khan

Speaking about her solo photography exhibition, Nazia Khan said “I travel a lot and with this exhibition I have put up a testimony to the various places that I have traveled to!! There are many questions which remain unresolved in the moments that I have captured. Isolation may have positive meaning for some people and negative meaning for someone. My pictures have human beings, animals and nature captured in different aspects of isolation”.

This is Nazia’s first exhibition in her home town. She also went to reveal how she gradually began honing her skills. “I had a small Nikon film camera initially. Then I shifted to digital camera before buying a professional camera. Having a good camera helps. But what you are capturing and the technique you are using is more important” said Nazia.

The exhibition will be open from 1st – 5th December. The photographs are also available for sale.
