Ankita Chakraborty- Yes, I am excited. This is like a double treat for me. Ma Durga is coming and it is during this time that my film is releasing and I am so glad. What a good timing!!
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.
Do you have any dream role that you want to portray on screen?
Ankita Chakraborty- I have done a handful of films and mostly with Anjan Dutt and Aniket Chattopadhyay. I am free to experiment with the roles offered to me. I am waiting for such a meaty role.
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?
Ankita Chakraborty- Though I have not watched the film completely yet I am hopeful that it will have a good run at the box office. This is simply because the films on Byomkesh do well.
