Chandan is excited as this is his first Bengali film. He says, “Immediately after the release of Kaminey on August 14, I got a call from Suman Mujherjee about wanting to make a Bengali film with me.
He sent me the entire script including all his details. I totally fell in love with the story. It is a very hard-hitting film about the different lifestyles of Bengalis in Kolkata.”
Chandan attended workshops before shooting and had several discussions with the director to understand the Bengali lifestyle.
“There are three interconnected short stories in the film. My role is that of a male chauvinist who always suspects his wife Rituparna of having affairs with other men,” says Chandan.
