Kolkata, October 18 (Washington Bangla Radio): After the grand success of ‘Autograph’ and ‘Baihse Srabon’, Srijit Mukherjee and Prosenjit Chatterjee, one of the most successful combos is back with ‘Mishwar Rohoshyo’ this Puja. What can be greater gift for Bengali audience than a movie based on one of themore popular Bengali sleuths?

The team of ‘Mishwar Rohosyo’ which included Prosenjit Chatterjee, Aryann, Tridha Chowdhury along with director Srijit Mukherjee, Music director Indradeep Dasgupta, ace lyricist Srijato and Producer Mahindra Soni came together at a city hotel to share their experience and expectations about the film.

Prosenjit spoke very highly of the production house. He said, “To make a movie in such a huge scale providing money alone cannot be enough. A lot of love and affection is needed for that. Venkatesh Films has made the film from bottom of their heart”

Srijit Mukherjee, the captain of the ship informed that the first idea of making this film came to Prosenjit’s mind. “One day Bumba da suddenly called me and told that he has spoken to Sunil Gangopadhaya about the rights of the Kakababu Series. He told me that the author has agreed to the idea of going ahead with the Kakababu franchise and is happy to know that Bumba da will himself play the epic title character. This is how it all began.”

Prosenjit added that the first reaction of Srijit was that how can be a story of few decades back be made acceptable to the audience of today. He also added that soon Srijit and his team started working on things and re-sketched the characters of the series to make them more apt for the present.

Tridha who had caught the eye of Srijit in a contest told WBRi that if the contest would not have happen she would probably be playing with microbes in a lab and would have looking forward to completing her Doctorate degree. The third year student of Microbiology also shared that her family was too scared of letting her go ahead with the shoot in Egypt as it was scheduled at a time when a civil war was going on in Egypt. She also said that this puja is going to be special as her first film is releasing on Saptami. She also shared her plans for the Puja which is spending time at a friend’s house where a Puja is organized, hanging out with her friends and families and of course promoting her debut film ‘Mishwar Rohosyo’.

Aryann also seemed to be very excited. He said that he could not believe when Srijit Mukherjee called him for the first time and said that he wanted to cast him as Sontu. “I did not take the call initially as I could not recognize the number. But when I did I could not believe my ears that I will be playing Sontu and the film is going to be shot in Egypt.” Said Aryann.

Srijato and Indradeep also spoke about the songs. Srijato said that he had to spend sleepless nights and compose the songs of the film. Indradeep said it was a challenge to input songs in this film but hopefully the audience will like what they have come up with.
