Bangladesh’s Jaya Ahsan will be seen sharing the screen with the Tollywood superstar Prosenjit in acclaimed director Atanu Ghosh’s next film.
This is the first time that the Bangladeshi actress will work with Prosenjit.Prosenjit Chatterjee starring Atanu Ghosh’s last film Mayurakshi was adjudged the Best Bengali Feature Film at the 65 National Film Awards.
In Mayurakshi, Prosenjit played a middle-aged man, Aryanil, with a history of failed marriages, who visits his ailing father, a renowned historian (Soumitra Chatterjee).
After Mayurakshi, Atanu completed Binisutoy with Jaya and Ritwick Chakraborty. The story of Binisutoy revolves around two strangers, who meet and try to find solace in each other’s story. Jaya Ahsan has also recorded her first playback for film Binisutoy.
Now Atanu is set to bring together two of his favourite actors — Prosenjit and Jaya in his next venture where Jaya Ahsan to play the female lead.
However, the title or story of Atanu’s upcoming film is not been disclosed yet.
The Tollywood superstar confirmed the news of working with the director but declined to open up on the storyline.“It is true that after Mayurakshi, Atanu and I will be working together again. We are toying with two-three ideas but haven’t locked the final script yet. We have to look into the production logistics before zeroing in on the script. I love the sensitivity and finesse in his stories. The way he deals with the intricacies and complexities of the human mind is praiseworthy and this time too we will see such nuances in this yet untitled film,” said Prosenjit.
Meanwhile, director Atanu said, “Whenever I work with Bumbada (Prosenjit), the first thing that comes to my mind is that we must live up to the expectations generated by Mayurakshi. It is something that got us so much of acclaim from the general audience and critics alike, which left us honoured and privileged. So, there’s a sense of concern in whatever we do together. I am always interested in the intricacies and complexities of the human mind pitted against contemporary society. In the two stories I have been toying with, there is a lot of novel exploration, the kind I have not attempted so far, with dubious life and strange intrigue playing a very crucial role. Let’s see if any of them materialises.”
Anyhow, industry sources said, the upcoming film of Atanu is an unconventional relationship story that also has thriller elements.
The actors have not signed on the dotted lines, even though they have heard and liked the story. Jaya is currently in Bangladesh and will visit Kolkata soon.” If all goes well, shoot of the film will begin in September.
