Anirban Chakrabarti returns as Eken Babu on the big screen. The second feature film of this quintessential Bengali detective, The Eken: Ruddhaswas Rajasthan, is going to be released on April 14. Directed by Joydeep Mukherjee, the film also features Suhotra Mukhopadhyay and Somak Ghosh in key roles. Besides, Rajatava Dutta, Sandipta Sen and others are also there in the film that is produced by SVF. Anirban revealed some unknown secrets regarding his character.
The actor said, “Every film’s shooting was held in different places. No location was repeated. Traveling, food, local culture, everything became important parts of our film. This franchise's director and the team remain the same. Hence, we are comfortable working with each other.”
How did he prepare himself for this character? Anirban replied, “I rediscover Eken with every film and every series. I think what Eken would do in that situation. When I started working, I did not have any reference points which could help me prepare for this character. I did everything based on my sense and instincts.”
Eken Babu, along with his two sidekicks Bapi, played by Suhatra, and Pramatha, played by Somak, is coming on the big screen on Poila Boisakh. The film will be located in Rajasthan and Sonar Kella will be captured in a new color.
