With Srijit Mukherji’s Dawshom Awbotaar, Jisshu U Sengupta is all set to get his Puja release after years. The actor looks deceptive and intriguing in the trailer of the film which also features Prosenjit Chatterjee, Jaya Ahsan, and Anirban Bhattacharya. In a recent interview with OTTplay, Jisshu said that while his character is indeed deceptive, he also thinks that he performed well in the film. 

“Well, I look different and probably acted well in this film,” said the actor. Explaining the word ‘probably’ Jisshu said that he is a fearful actor. “I am confident with my skills but always feel unsure about whether I was looking good on the sets. I can’t see myself there,” he said and this is why he doesn’t watch his own films. “I never watch my films out of this fear because I am sure I would find faults. I would feel that this could have been different and that could have been better. I never watch a film even when it becomes a hit,” he said. 

However, there were exceptions. “I watched two of my films. Uma, because my daughter is there, and the first Byomkesh I worked in. I watched Abir (Chatterjee) playing Byomkesh Bakshi and he is very good. I wanted to portray it differently. So I watched Byomkesh Bakshi, that too, only the first half. After I realised I had done my job and made the character different, I left. I have worked in more than 100 films. I watched nothing. From Rituda’s (Rituparno Ghosh, filmmaker) Abohomaan, or Chitrangada: The Crowning Wish to Srijit’s Jaatishwar – I watched nothing. 

People usually get tense during the release of the film. I never panic during release. I am tense when I am acting. I get scared between the time my director says ‘action’ and then ‘cut’ and ‘ok’. Between this time, if someone conducts an ECG on me, something will show (laughs). So I get tense while sitting for the exam. Once it is over it is over. I don’t think much about the result after that,” said Jisshu.
