Bangladeshi national award-winning actor Siam Ahmed is all geared up to debut in Tollywood with Prosenjit Chatterjee and Srabanti In Sayanytan Ghosal’s film. The young actor has also conceptualised the script of the film. As per reports, Ayushi Talukdar will be seen opposite the Bangladeshi actor. The film, which has the working title Protipokkho, will be shot in London. Padmanabha Dasgupta developed the story based on Siam’s plot.

In an interview with Ei Samay, Siam expressed his excitement about working with Prosenjit. “Is there any Bengali person who has grown up without watching Prosenjit’s films? We watched him on the matinee shows on our televisions. My mother is a fan of Prosenjit and Ranjit Mallick. When she heard that I will be working with him, she kept on asking, ‘If he comes to Dhaka, will he come to our house?’ She doesn’t care what film it is all about. She just wants to cook for him and treat him,” said the actor. 

Meanwhile, the actor also said that he doesn’t believe that Bangladesh and West Bengal are different. “Based on our culture, relationships and values, I don't think we are different,” said Siam adding, “Such collaborative work technically means reaching out to your people. That’s why the artistes from here are so much loved in Bangladesh and vice versa.”

Siam was approached to work in Srijit Mukherji’s X=Prem. However, that did not materialise. Talking about his intent to work in Bengal, he said his decision will depend on the way his work is accepted in Bengal. “I can’t give my 100% if I don’t get love. I want to see if the Indian audience wants to watch my work and if it is fruitful for the producers and makers. I obviously want to work here,” he said.
