The shooting of Sayantan Mukherjee’s web series 1954 came to an end recently. Saurav Das plays a key character, along with Rudranil Ghosh, Prantika Das and Pujarini Ghosh.

Talking about his character, Saurav said, “I play the character of an artiste. He thinks himself to be one of the finest actors in the world. He watches Hitchcock’s films and talks about Jibanananda Das. His life is all about the arts. However, he could not do much in his life. He fails to accept that. I was drawn to the character for this insanity. I have worked on a character like this after years.” The story is based on a real-life murder that shook the city in the ’50s for its brutality.
