Actor-cum-politician Soham Chakraborty’s production Shastri is at the centre of discussion. The shooting has started and Mithun Chakraborty and Debasree Roy paired up after a long gap. According to the makers, Kharaj Mukherjee is also acting with them. The film is based on astrology where Kharaj gets a special role. People knew that Shastri's shooting had started and so had Kharaj's shooting. But Kharaj has a different version. According to him, he did not know about working in Shastri.
In an interview with TV9 Bangla, Kharaj said, “Many people told me that I was acting in Shastri. However, no one confirmed this to me. Soham has been telling me for a long time to act in his film. But I don’t know which film is this and when the shooting starts. He just said that he was thinking of taking me in a film. That’s all.”
The production house’s official YouTube channel shared a concept video of Shastri that announces Kharaj is acting in the film. But Kharaj said he didn't know anything about it.
During the shooting, Mithun Chakraborty fell ill on Saturday and was admitted to a hospital. Soham Chakraborty admitted him to the hospital.
The shooting takes place in Kolkata Maidan, Sahid Minar, Keyatala, Kankurgachi, Rammanohar Lohia Matrisadan Hospital, etc.
Kharaj Mukherjee is an established name in Tollywood. He worked in several Hindi films also. However, the well-liked actor’s work in Shastri seems muddled. Also, after Mithun fell ill, the work stalled. So it remains to see what happens finally.
