New Bengali Film Parbona Ami Charte Toke Stars in Conversation
The press conference of Raj Chakraborty’s next film Parbona Ami Charte Toke took place in the presence of Raj Chakraborty, Bonny, Koushani, Swastika and music director Indraadip Dasgupta.
Parbona Ami Charte Toke is a romantic comedy involving a boy Shibu and a girl Aparna, who grew up in the same locality. They love each other but they are never able to tell their feelings to one another. Their ego comes in between. Whenever they meet they quarrel. What happens at the end and how they express their love for each other is what the film is all about.
Debutant Kaushani was full of praises for director Raj Chakraborty. “Whatever I have learnt is because of Raj da and his team. I knew nothing on day one of the shooting. I now am aware of some nuances of the process of acting or how to face the camera. My character Aparna is the simple girl next door. This is the kind of character whom you can see every day in your locality. It was a huge challenge to play such a role in my debut film” said the actress.
In his second film with director Raj Chakraborty, Bonny said “Whatever mistakes I did in my first film, I have tried to rectify in this film. We had a great time shooting the film and we hope that the audience will appreciate the hard work that we have put in making the film”.
Director Raj Chakraborty explained the need for fresh faces in his films. “Whenever I make romantic films, I look for fresh faces. This enables the audience to relate with them easily. Rahul-Priyanka in Chirodini Tumi Je Amaar or Sohom-Payel in Prem Amar was fresh pairs. The pairs worked and the love stories were appreciated. With this new pair of Bonny and Kaushani, I hope to recreate the same magic onscreen” said the director.
“Composing music for this film was a challenge as this is one of my most commercial music compositions. I am glad that the four songs are getting good response from the audiences” said music director Indraadip Dasgupta.
The film is slated for release on the 11th of September. Book your tickets in advance to witness this mushy love story!!

It has been estimated that about 2,50, 000 children live on the streets and in the slums of the city. The rice that will be collected during this one week will be distributed among the slum and street children so that they can have a square meal.
Speaking at the occasion, Bonny Sengupta said “This is a great event and I am glad that I have been invited to be a part of such a noble endeavor. There was much uproar about the ice bucket challenge. To think of a rice bucket challenge to help the slum and street kids is a noble initiative, no doubt”.
