Jeet has been reportedly approached for a cameo in the film. The makers are also in talks with television girl Ditipriya Roy for a role.
Bengali superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee is gearing up for his next. Directed by Souvik Kundu, the film has the working title Ai Khuku Ai. Popular Bengali actor Jeet will reportedly share screen space with Prosenjit.
TOI reports that Prosenjit will begin shooting for the film in November. Jeet will appear in a cameo. Speaking to the daily, Prosenjit said that while he cannot comment on the project, he would be happy if Jeet says yes to doing the cameo. “We share a beautiful bond off-screen and I’m sure it’ll be visible on screen if we work together,” the actor said. The Autograph actor described the film as a father-daughter relationship. He lauded the script as relatable and beautifully penned by stating, “My character has a striking double role and is something that I haven’t played before.”
Talking about the director, the Baishe Srabon actor said that he had realised Souvik is a ‘talented and sorted’ director from the time he had directed Kader Kuler Bou. The film starred Anirban Bhattacharya and Koneenica Banerjee as the main cast.
Prosenjit added that while both of them wanted to work together, they were waiting for the right script. “This time, when he narrated the script during the pandemic, I liked it and gave my nod,” the actor shared.
Indraadip Das Gupta is likely to be roped in to compose the music for the film. Indranil Mukherjee will crank the camera for Ai Khuku Ai.
A little birdie also informed that television girl Ditipriya Roy will feature in the film. She will also be seen in Subhrajit Mitra’s Avijatrik –the wanderlust within and Ati Uttam, a biopic on Uttam Kumar.
Commenting on it, Prosenjit said that the talks are on and that she has an ‘innocent face’ that suits the character well. He also said that the film will be shot in Kolkata and in Purulia or in Baripada in Odisha.
Prosenjit has also been signed on for Atanu Ghosh’s period drama Saajhghar. More details on both the projects are awaited.
