Actor Anindya Chatterjee has been locked in a role in Shieladitya Moulik’s upcoming feature film Radio, which features Priyanka Sarkar in the lead role. Radio is a love story about a girl who develops a connection with the radio played on by her new neighbour.
Anindya Chatterjee will be seen in Shieladitya Moulik’s upcoming feature film Radio, which features Priyanka Sarkar in the lead role along with Ishan Mazumdar, Sumana Das, Momo and Moumita Bose in key roles. The actor will soon start shooting for the film.
Radio is a love story about a girl, played by Priyanka Sarkar, who is an advertising copywriter going through heartbreak after she had a breakup. She gets annoyed when a neighbour, who has newly shifted to the flat beside hers, keeps his radio on throughout the day, with its blaring sound falling hard on her ears. But her initial annoyance softens to finding a sort of solace and friend in the very radio, as she is very lonely at heart.
This is the first time that Anindya and Shieladitya are working together. In a statement to Entertainment Times, Anindya said that he was to work in the director’s debut film Sweater, but things didn’t work out due to date issues. He plays the boyfriend of Priyanka’s character in Radio. Anindya described himself to be a fan of the actress, while also adding that the radio is the ‘hero/heroine of the film.’
In the context of the film, Shieladitya said that the story was on his mind for a long time and making films on human relationships have always excited his story. But this time, the story explores the connection between a girl and a radio, which is an electronic device of a bygone ear sans social media and smartphones is like a ‘mystery’ as the person can only hear a faceless voice emanating from the radio. The film will have many songs to take the audience on a trip of nostalgia.
Shieladitya also praised the lead Priyanka, describing her as a ‘good balance of beauty and talent. He is working for the first time with Priyanka for this film.
Apart from Radio, the Sweater director has two films lined up, Hridpindo and Cheledhora. He has also joined hands with Arjun Dutta and Acharya for an upcoming anthology film called Three Course Meal.
