Ankita Chakraborty shared her shooting experience for her upcoming film Kadambari Aajo, revealing bits of her character Kadambani. She added that acting alongside veteran Bengali actress Sabitri Chatterjee was especially exciting for her.
Bengali actress Ankita Chakraborty has wrapped up the shoot for Sharmistha Deb’s Kadambari Aajo. The actress who just shifted base to Mumbai will be seen in the titular role of Kadambari in the film.
Ankita told Entertainment Times that the film completed the shoot just before the second wave came up in Kolkata and North Bengal. She further added that while the name Kadambari might ring in as a story exploring the bond between Rabindranath Tagore and Kadambari Devi but the film is a completely different story. "The pain and loneliness in the name Kadambari have been highlighted in the film," says the actress who is still popularly recognised as Mun, the character she played in the popular TV serial Ishti Kutum. Kadambari Aajo features Sabitri Chatterjee, Indrajit Majumder, Biswajit Chakraborty, Amitabh Bhattacharya, Rajdeep Sarkar, Srijani Mitra Arkaprava and Rumki Chatterjee in pivotal roles.
Kadambari Aajo is the story of a successful filmmaker and a strong woman named Kadambari who is married off early in her life. She yearns for the attention of her husband but he is absorbed in his own world. When she goes to North Bengal for the shooting of a film, she meets an English professor (played by Amitabh Bhattacharya). The two come close and develop a special bond. What follows next is the hook point of the story. Kadambari Aajo deals with the age-old yet ever-relevant theme of romantic relationships and the complications around them.
Ankita added that she thoroughly enjoyed the shooting experience with veteran actress Sabitri Chatterjee, with whom she shares a personal bond. “Even at this age, her energy is enviable,” she said.
The actress got her big break with the ETV mega serial Kakhono Megh Kakhono Brishti. She began her acting journey as a theatre actress in the theatre group Drishyopot. Ankita has famously acted in Anjan Dutt’s Byomkesh series (based on Sharadindu Bandopadhyay’s books on Byomkesh Bakshi, the famous Bengali detective and truth-seeker) Byomkesh Bakshi, Byomkesh Bakshi Phire Elo and Byomkesh O Chiriyakhana.
On the work front, besides Kadambari Aajo, she has recently completed the shooting of One Secret Red, her first Hindi film that co-stars Satyajeet Dubey.
