Recently appeared in actor-director Ajay Devgn’s action-adventure film Bholaa, actor Chetan Sharma will now be seen in celebrated Aparna Sen’s much talked-about film The Rapist - starring Konkona Sen Sharma, Arjun Rampal Tanmay Dhanania. Although the movie premiered at 26th Busan International Film Festival in October 2021, it is yet to be commercially released in India.
As the title suggests, the film follows the journey of three characters, whose lives are tangled up due to one horrific incident. Speaking about his experience of working with the director, Chetan - who has previously acted in Sacred Games 2, Pagglait and Delhi Crime - said, “Working with Aparna Sen was surreal. She is one of the finest directors we have, and is a living legend. We used to have intense workshops for our parts. Co-working on scenes with Konkana and Tanmay was very fulfilling.”
Apart from The Rapist, the actor - who played a student in Bholaa, will also be seen in comedian Varun Grover’s short film, Kiss, featuring Swanand Kirkire, Adarsh Gourav, Shubhrajyoti Barat and Ashwath Bhatt. The film is currently making festival runs.

According to Chetan, doing Kiss was easier because “Swanand sir and Varun have an impeccable sense of humour. “They conveyed things in a very easy and amusing way. Adarsh is also a great actor. He is very devoted. While working with actors like Shubhrajyoti and Ashwath, you always get to listen to interesting anecdotes. It was so wonderful to see Varun making his debut in direction with so much ease and grace,” he added.
Then, Chetan is also acting in Abhiroop Basu’s Gudgudi, starring Rajshri Deshpande, Kuldeep Sareen and Akash Sinha. Abhiroop has previously made critically acclaimed films - Meal and Laali - working with veterans like Adil Hussian and Pankaj Tripathi. “The filmmaker brings out the most intricate emotions in a way that is both cinematic and hits you hard,” Chetan sums up.
