“Saajhghar” will explore the period when the British ruled India and, as the title suggests, the story will have key figures from the world of theater and cinema of that time. Prosenjit was cast in one of these important figures. However, the famous actor doesn’t want to divulge much about the plot just yet. “All I can say is that my look in this movie will surprise everyone. He is such a character from a period that everyone can relate to, ”he shared.
Speaking of working with new filmmakers, the “Robibaar” actor said that I have known Anjan for a long time and even heard this script many years ago. “When I was told about the story, I liked it straight away. But due to the pandemic and other reasons, we couldn’t start the movie. But, now, after a long time, I will be working with a new filmmaker. I have worked with those who were once assistant directors and now popular filmmakers in the industry. On the other hand, Soumik Sen despite his films in Mumbai made his first Bengali film ‘Mahalaya’ which I had produced. So I’m always open to working with new filmmakers, ”explained Prosenjit.
Besides Prosenjit in the lead, there will be three female roles in ‘Saajhghar’ but the casting has not yet been finalized. Actress Koneenica Bandopadhyay will also be seen in a central role. There are also plans to recruit actors from Mumbai.
Speaking of the movie Anjan shared, the story was written almost 10 years ago, “Right from the start, I had planned to give daddy this role. I was convinced that every time I will do this movie I would only do with Prosenjit Chatterjee.
The film’s pre-production work is already in full swing. Since this is a period film, there is so much work to be done in pre-production. The film will be shot in and around Calcutta. However, how things go after Puja and given the pandemic situation, filming could start early next year.
