Arunava Khasnobis’ NeetiShastra is scheduled to release in mid-July
Iman Chakraborty went through a look transformation for the character
National Award-winning singer Iman Chakraborty is all set to debut in a feature film. She will be seen in Arunava Khasnabis’s anthology NeetiShastra that delves into the conflict of right and wrong, just and unjust. Along with actress Bidipta Chakraborty, Iman will be seen in one of the stories, Moksha, as a convict in jail. Besides, the anthology that has four different stories will also feature Rafiath Rashid Mithila, Rwitobroto Mukherjee and others. Nitishastra is slated to release in mid-July.
Talking about her tryst with acting, Iman said, “This is a completely different experience for me. The character is layered and 180-degree opposite from the real me. It was a pretty challenging role. Bidiptadi and I play inmates in a jail. We shot the film in 2021. I am really excited about my first ever feature film.” The singer attended multiple workshops before going to the floors. “My director was kind and helpful. While I did attend the workshops with him, Bidiptadi too helped me a lot. The seasoned actress that she is, her suggestions helped me to pull through my character. Working with her was a pleasure,” said Iman who also rendered a song in the film. Her husband and eminent musician Nilanjan Ghosh composed the music for the film.
In another story Siddhi, Rwitobroto plays a rogue young man in a village. According to media reports, he is an addict who fights and creates a ruckus in the area. Shantilal Mukherjee – Rwitobroto’s real-life father – is also part of the film. In another story, Dhee, Rafiath Rashid Mithila plays a doctor. Actress Basabdatta Chatterjee plays a key character in the film. Sudipta Chakraborty and Rajatava Dutta play husband and wife in another story, Astitva, of the anthology. Arunava directed several films, including Bisorgo and others.
