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.

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!!

Vikram Chatterjee who plays Zico in the film said “The trailer looks great. When Pratim asked me to play the role I was not confident myself. But he had the confidence. I am looking forward to the release of this film. It has excellent music, great screenplay and some amazing actors in the cast. As far as my character is concerned, he can be positive or negative. Let the audience see the film and then know”.

Manoj-Michigan-Interview
After his last film “89”, ace director Manoj Michigan is gearing up for the shooting of his upcoming Bengali film “Ami Joy Chatterjee”. Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent caught up with the director who shared some interesting details about the film.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Can you share some details about the story of “Ami Joy Chatterjee”?

Manoj Michigan- The film is about Joy Chatterjee who is a very successful businessman. He may be successful but he has a number of flaws which includes his self centered nature, egoistic attitude, non-compassionate nature and his belief that the whole world revolves around him. His fiancée Dr. Aditi Roy is a character who is in complete contrast to him. By profession she is a pediatrician. She is compassionate and kind; emotions which Joy lacks. This makes her go completely at loggerheads with Joy. In a twist of events, Joy goes missing. What happens after that is what the whole film all about.

So this is again a thriller after 89. Right?

Manoj Michigan- This is actually a thriller cum drama. You will find both thriller and dramatic elements in this film. This will surely appeal to the audiences who like thrillers as well as the drama loving audience.

Abir-Chatterjee-film

Can you throw some light on the cast of this film?

Manoj Michigan- Abir Chatterjee will be playing Joy and Jaya Ahsan will be playing Aditi. Shataf will be seen playing the role of ACP.

Jaya-Ahsan-sexy-poster

Why did you select Abir to play Joy and Jaya to play Aditi?

Manoj Michigan- Abir Chatterjee was the first person whom I had in mind when I was thinking of whom to cast as Joy. He fits the bill perfectly. We had plans of starting the shoot in December but since Abir was busy, we waited. Jaya meanwhile is a wonderful actor. I have seen her acting in many films and she has great screen presence.

Who is composing the music of the film?

Manoj Michigan- Raja Narayn Deb is composing the music of the film. He will be doing the background score and two songs in the film. Samik and Kunal will also be composing one song which will go with the end title.

When do you plan to start the shooting of this film?

Manoj Michigan- We plan to start shooting in the month of May. We will be shooting in real locations all over Kolkata. We have an outdoor shooting in Kalimpong too.

The editor of the film is Sankalp Bhowmick and the DOP is Manash Ganguly. Shivanggi Choudhury is the producer and the film has been produced under Aadiiv Kreation Pvt Ltd.
