Veteran Tollywood actor Sabyasachi Chakraborty recently joined the 21st Dhaka Film Festival for the first time. His film JK 1971 had its premiere at the festival. The film was directed by Fakhrul Arefin Khan. The film, made in the backdrop of the liberation war, was a part of the opening ceremony. Sabyasachi gave an interview there to Bangladeshi media where he said that he is retiring from acting. 

The actor, popular as Feluda, said that after JK 1971 he is not acting in any film. “Right now I am not enlisted in any film. I am bidding farewell to films. Now is the time for retirement. I have many offers and told no to all of them,” he said. 

Sabyasachi also talked about the reason behind his decision. He said that he wants to spend time according to his wish--having favourite dishes, reading, watching TV and OTT, and sleeping--these are his plans. 

The actor also said, “I am old and suffered from Covid. I am not well.” He also said that the role of Feluda is the most memorable one in his long career.

The film JK 1971 centres around a daredevil boy of twenty-eight. On 13 December 1971, French citizen Jean Quean boarded a Boeing 720 airplane of Pakistan International Airways. He was carrying a bomb and guns. He stopped the plane on the runway for five long hours with the demand to send 20 tonnes of medicines and relief for the Bangladeshi refugees. The film tells the story of this young man and is termed the first international film on the Bangladesh Liberation War. Sabyasachi played the role of a Pakistani pilot in the film.
