Solanki Roy and Vikram Chatterjee are back on screen in Aritra Sen’s film Shaharer Ushnatama Dine. Earlier, they worked together in Star Jalsha’s mega-serial Ichhe Nodi. Filmmaker Aritra’s team is currently shooting the film at different locations in Kolkata. Meanwhile, the actress is also busy shooting Star Jalsha’s serial Gaatchhora (also available on Disney+ Hotstar), which also stats Gourab Chatterjee and Anindya Chatterjee.
“It is hectic to cope with two full-fledged shooting schedules. But I am enjoying it,” Solanki told OTTplay. Solanki and Vikram paired up in Ichhe Nodi which started in Star Jalsha in 2015 and had a run till 2017. The duo’s onscreen chemistry was well accepted among the audience. “It has been five years and it is great to see how people are still excited about our pairing. Vikram and I wanted to come back together for a love story and finally, Aritrada offered us one. Vikram and I share a level of comfort that came from our work in Ichhe Nodi,” she added.
Shaharer Ushnatama Dine delves into the lives of Rwitaban and Anindita who once got separated due to unavoidable circumstances. The film revolves around Kolkata and also features Anindya Chatterjee, who is Solanki’s co-actor in Gaatchhora.
Talking about the shooting, Anindya had earlier told us, “Solanki and I talk about the film in the Gaatchhora set and discuss our serial at the film set just to annoy people. But working with her is fun since she is a dear friend. In fact, the entire set of Gaatchhora is full of friends.”
Solanki is drawn to the script of her film. “The film has a very serene storyline. It is an emotional journey of two people. Everybody will be able to relate to the film,” the actress said.
Solanki Roy has recently debuted in films with Aritra Mukherjee’s Baba Baby O. The film is now streaming at Hoichoi. She has been working on television for a long time and has recently portrayed the character of Kadambini Ganguly – the first practising female physician in British ruled India – in Prothoma Kadambini.
