“I grew within myself in these two decades and in this time I came across some very good actors - Tota being one of them. I decided to attempt to bring back some of the old flavors of Ray's films. Duli - a character from the master's ‘Aranyaner din Ratri’ - returns in my film played by Reshmi Ghosh. Reshmi plays the sensuous woman here and tantalizes Shyamal Sen (Tota Roy Chowdhury), resulting in Shyamal maintaining a distance from his wife Charu. Charu, played immaculately by Jaya Ahsan, is once again a sex deprived married woman like in ‘Charulata’.” - Arindam Sil.

Payel told WBRi, “It is absolutely a co-incidence that both my films Bojhena Se Bojhena and Bawali Unlimited are being released on the same day. I have enjoyed working in both the films. But yes - now I am feeling the pressure of it. Hoping both my films will do well at the box-office. Keeping fingers crossed”.

Speaking with WBRi, Tota explained his character in the film. “Biye Not Out is a very different movie in my life because my real personality and my character in this movie are so much reversed. I am playing a very frivolous character here, who loves to enjoy every bit of life. He never cares for discipline - even does not want to bind himself in any restricted orbit of life. He is playful - his most passionate obsession in life is photography. Wildlife photography attracts him and makes him devote himself to nature and animals. He goes out by himself to enjoy safaris and nightlife in forest areas. In this film for the first time I have applied my dance prowess in a diverse manner. Before this I have used many dance forms right from Salsa and break-dance to modern. But for this film I have danced in tribal form as directed by my choreographer. One of the dances in this film is a mixture of Bengali and Odiya dance forms. The integration has given birth to a distinct dance form for this movie. The most interesting thing is that it is called ‘Tiger dance’ and is folkish in nature. I believe the audience will get to see a very unusual dance from my side after a long time’’.
