Ace makeup artist Somnath Kundu created this latest look
Durga Puja is here and Dev is all set to release his magnum opus, Bagha Jatin. Directed by Arun Roy, the film delves into the bravery of freedom fighter Jatindranath Mukherjee. The pre-teaser of the film was dropped during the release of Dev’s Byomkesh O Durgo Rohoshyo. Later, the teaser was released and the actor is seen in multiple disguises. Now, the team has revealed a brand new look of Dev.
The superstar is seen in an intensely disheveled look. His face bears the signs of wounds. He has a long beard and dons a shawl. He looks dirty and unkempt. At the time of the British Raj, the freedom fighters often used to take shelter in various places and used to take a disguise to fool the rulers. These would help them in executing their freedom movement without hassles. Dev’s latest look is created by ace makeup artist Somnath Kundu.
Talking about the look, Dev said, “In Bagha Jatin, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to step into the shoes of a character who, much like our brave freedom fighters of the past, knew the value of disguise in the pursuit of a greater cause. Just as they changed their looks to evade capture by the British, my character too transforms to keep the flames of resistance burning. It's a humbling experience to portray this untold chapter of our history and pay tribute to those who fought valiantly for our freedom.”
Produced by Dev Entertainments, the film will be released on October 19.
