Srabanti plays herself in her cameo appearance for the Rahul Mukherjee directorial.
Rahool Mukherjee’s Kishmish is in the news again and for good reason too. Close on the heels of Jisshu U Sengupta and Rituparna Sengupta revealed as surprise cast, popular actor Srabanti Chatterjee has been confirmed to play a cameo in the much-awaited film too. Touted to be a love story, Kishmish stars Dev and Rukmini Maitra as the leads.
The Katmundu actor opened up about her role to Entertainment Times. She said that she plays herself, Srabanti the actress in a guest appearance. But even so, her cameo is integral to the plot of the film as it ‘adds a dimension to the storyline.’ She further added that when Dev approached her for the role, she instantly said yes as she found the story ‘interesting and her character, quite meaningful.’
While she doesn’t have any scene with the superstar in Kishmish, the 34-year-old actor said that she is eager to share screen space with him in Leela Ganguly’s and Saibal Banerjee’s Khelaghar. The film will mark their onscreen collaboration after six years since their onscreen pairing in Birsa Dasgupta’s 2015 romantic drama Shudhu Tomari Jonyo.
Meanwhile, Dev was happy to meet Srabanti after quite some time and expressing his thoughts, he told the Entertainment Times that having her on the sets is ‘always fun’. Describing her as his good friend, the Chander Pahar actor said that their chemistry is well-appreciated by the audience.
The romcom will see Dev essaying four characters, one being that of a comic book artist-writer. The shooting of the film began a week ago. Kishmish is backed by the 38-year-old actor’s own production banner Dev Entertainment Ventures along with MK Media, and also stars Rukmini, Kharaj Mukherjee, Kamaleshwar Mukherjee, Anjana Basu, and June.
The release date of the much-awaited film hasn’t been announced as of yet.
