Father's Day Special! Prosenjit: I teach my son what I learnt from my father
Prosenjit Chatterjee

Prosenjit Chatterjee plays the loving father of Ditipriya Roy in his latest film, Aay Khuku Aay. Directed by Sauvik Kundu, the film delves into a father-daughter relationship set in the backdrop of rural Bengal. Meanwhile, the actor took to social media to wish everybody a Happy Father’s day on June 19. In a video message, he recalled his childhood with his father, veteran actor Biswajit Chatterjee. The actor and his wife, actress Arpita, have a son, Trishanjit Chatterjee.

“We constantly learn from our father. The first thing that I learnt from my father is (the meaning of) freedom. He taught me to be free. Also, after a while father and son become friends. We have started having open conversations from a very early age. I also learnt about his philosophies and worldview. Then one day I also became a father. I tried to behave the way my father behaved with me. I also inculcated my father’s love, freedom and philosophy to my son,” said Prosenjit.

Meanwhile, after shooting for Aay Khuku Aay, actress Ditipriya started calling Prosenjit ‘baba (father)’. “I used to call him Bumbamamu. But during the shooting, we developed a real bonding like father and daughter. In reality, the film shows a deep bonding between the two characters. Recently, the duo has appeared in a vlog like a real-life father-daughter.

Talking about the character and the film, Prosenjit had earlier told us, “In this film, I got a chance to play a character that is not urban and comes from a humble background. You don’t always get a chance to play an ordinary character, who is rather weak on the economic and social front, in a mainstream commercial film. It is not just in Bengal. We have people like this character, who takes the early morning train to come to the city to work and then goes back to his village everywhere. They are the daily bread earners. I loved this character.”
