Lyricist-Poet Srijato Bandopadhyay

Srijato Bandopadhyay is a renowned Bengali poet, with more than three dozen acclaimed works under his belt. Having written songs for over a decade, he made his acting debut in 2016 through Srijit’s Zulfiqar and is now set to for his first directorial venture.

A romantic comedy titled Manabjamin, the movie is also scripted by him with enough romantic and humour quotients. The title is a homage to Sadhak Ramprasad Sen for what he wrote: Emon Manabjamin Roilo Potit. Calling it a simple film, he explains the importance of humour mechanisms in a movie and has tried to keep humour alive in the script.


In a talk with Calcutta Times, he clarified that this was not a sudden decision, rather he always wanted to direct films, but had to put this dream on the backburner in the course of life. However, now that he has a chance, he says he prays to be able to utilize it well.

Elaborating on the shooting schedule, he said that everything depends on the pandemic, as there is a chance of a third wave that can upset their plans. He will be meeting with the producer to get a clearer picture and for finalizing the cast soon.
