Calcutta, Dec 21, 2011 (Databazaar Media Ventures) Everyone knows Kharaj Mukherjee. He is one of the best character actors in Bengali cinema today. He is also a gifted singer and can mimic veteran actors like Chhobi Biswas with élan. He has a very interesting role in Premangshu Roy’s Katakuti which has been acquired by Databazaar Media for DVD and streaming rights on channels. But let us hear it from Kharaj himself.
“Katakuti is a very modern story about relationships and their mutations happening in a global and modern world. Though I generally do not have any rigid choices about my roles as I am not a hero-figure, I liked the one I play in Katakuti. I have done the role of one of lunatics placed in a mental home in Kolkata. The film repeats its underlined message – that a man passionate about anything, be it a person, animal, object or art or science, mainstream society immediately labels him a lunatic without weighing the pros and cons of the loaded term ‘lunatic.’ I play a man so obsessed,” explains Kharaj.
