This Bengali superstar is coming up with heroin-wife Arpita Chatterjee as the on-screen couple in an ad film
Prosenjit Chatterjee said he was now ready to share screen space with the Rituparno Ghosh-made Utsab actor if given roles. “With me reinventing myself as an actor in different genre of films ranging from ‘Moner Manush’ to ‘Jaatiswar’, we can’t be cast in ‘typical hero-heroin’ mould in an typical entertainer any more,” Prosenjit told in an interview.
Crediting popular masala film maker Raja Chanda for the creative ad film casting Tollywood’s first couple, Prosenjit said, “But coming to full length feature films, with the make-over and change in contents, I am not doing typical roles any more. And if they (directors) want to cast us both, as two characters, they have to develop the script accordingly.”
Prosenjit, who said the ad beautifully portrayed a woman’s fetish for jewellery, would rate his father veteran actor Biswajit Chatterjee and matinee idol Uttam Kumar as two personalities having finer taste for gold accessories.
“This is my first on-screen appearance as a couple with your Bumbada (as Prosenjit is called fondly) and a woman’s addiction to ornaments, typically gold, comes off so poignantly. I am positive about turning up with him but it has to be backed by appropriate story line,” Arpita said.
“The short film, partly in retro color, also encompassed the journey of Tollywood, the classic milestones and the most contemporary ones,” the producer of the ad film said.
