It was a Sunday and Rahul Arunodoy Banerjee’s episodes of Hoichoi’s ambitious project Indubala Bhaater Hotel will not be dropped before March 24. Before that, he will be seen in Anjan Dutt’s Seven on Zee5. Set in the misty Kolakham in North Bengal, the seven-episode web series also features Gourab Chakrabarty, Ridhima Ghosh, Suprobhat, Ankita Chakraborty, Sujan Mukhopadhyay, and Anjan. Before the release, the actor talks about his character in Seven, his experience of working with Anjan, and his rekindling with his estranged wife Priyanka Sarkar. Read on…
In Seven, Rahul plays the character of Subir – an ad-agency creative head. Subir, along with his friends, Bibek (Gaurab Chakrabarty), Namita (Riddhima Ghosh), Ananta (Suprobhat Das), and Ria (Ankitaa Chakraborty), is on a trip where they discover a bag full of stacked up cash. “Subir thinks himself to be smart but in reality, he is always in a tiff with his boss. Meanwhile, his personal life is also not very sorted. He is in love with one of his friends on the trip and he knows that if it comes out, it will be catastrophic for their friendship. He knows that the only solution to his problem is money. If he gets money, he will set up his own ad agency and will also go away from the love of his life,” he said.
Besides these five friends, there are two more characters played by Anjan and Sujan. “Seven is more of an extension of ‘shoro ripu’ – the six sins according to our mythology. “Is there any other sin? Seven will delve into that,” said Rahul.
The actor has worked with Anjan on a number of projects. Talking about his experience, Rahul said, “I am fortunate. Anjanda has been our icon. In him, we saw a world-class actor. Our childhood and teenage were engulfed by his music. We grew up watching his direction. He is a thinker. What surprises me is his energy. He has the energy of a 17-year-old young man. He gets excited with a good shot so much that he starts sobbing. Such is his passion.”
Anjan is deeply associated with North Bengal. From his songs to a number of films and series set in that area. How is Seven different? “Seven is a human story and not just a thriller. It has its charm,” said Rahul.
