Abhinandan Banerjee’s Manikbabur Megh – The Cloud & The Man’s journey continues. After being lauded at several international film festivals, lead actor Chandan Sen wins the Best Male Actor award at the IFF Pacific Meridian at Vladivostok, Russia. The makers and the team took to social media to share the news.
Earlier, the film won the NETPAC Asian Select Best Film at the 27th Kolkata International Film festival. Manikbabur Megh is a surrealistic romance between a middle-aged man and clouds. Besides Chandan, the film also features Bratya Basu, among others.
National Award-winning filmmaker and the producer of Manikbabur Megh, Bauddhayan Mukherji took to social media to express his happiness and thanked his team. “Chandan Sen wins the Best Actor award at the 19th IFF Pacific Meridian at Vladivostok. This is a remarkable achievement and a big hug to the entire team of Manikbabur Megh - The Cloud & The Man. I met Chandan during the casting of Patalghar. Saw him up close and realised he is possibly one of the most underrated actors in Bengal. Ever since, there was this strong desire to work with him, to offer him something which he can’t refuse. Finally, we went to him with Manikbabu. And what a fabulous job he has done. This award is a much-deserved one, Chandan. A big shout out to the people who helped Chandan in his journey as Manikbabu - director Abhinandan Banerjee, producer, production designer & costume designer Monalisa Mukherji, make-up artist Malay Mukherjee, DOP Anup Singh, editor Abhro Banerjee music director Subhajit Mukherjee and sound engineer Abhijit Tenny Roy. All of you have helped Chandan become Manikbabu. Thank you,” he wrote.
