Kolkata, Jan 20, 2013 (Washington Bangla Radio) Director Ujjal Mukherjee (‘Escape from Taliban’) is getting ready to venture into Tollywod with Kolkata Bangle movie ‘White Mischief’ featuring Mithun Chakrabarty in the title role.
On being asked about the significance of this interesting title, the director said, “White mischief is mischief that makes people happy rather than harming them. Mithun plays such a role in the film in which he will be seen doing mischievous activities to do good for people around him. The mischief making is his strategy to make people happy. So he is the white mischief in the film.”
The real name of White Mischief is Vikash. The film also stars Gargi Roy Chowdhury and Paoli Dam. Gargi is playing wife of White Mischief ‘Deepa’ and Paoli Dham will play ‘Esha’, the love interest of White Mischief's brother. According to the director, Abir Chatterjee has been approached for the brother's role but he is still to confirm.
White Mischief will be a romantic comedy - a story of two brothers with highly contrasting characteristics. Vikash (Mithun) is the elder brother who is an extrovert and flirtious arranges a job abroad for his brother Akash who is an introvert in nature and the drama begins. Vikash will also be seen fixing his younger sibling’s problem related to girlfriends.
Mithun, busy with his Bollywood assignments, is very excited to be back in a Bengali film. He spoke highly of director Ujjal Chatterjee, “Ujjal is a very talented boy though he did not have enough luck which one needs to do the best in this Industry. I loved his film ‘Escape from Taliban’. It was an excellent film. I think this time he will again come up with a good film.”
Mithun’s last film ‘Nobel Chor’ won many awards in different film festivals. When asked if this film will also repeat the feat, he said, “This is not the kind of film which has the best chance to grab an award. So we should look forward to rewards. But then also no one knows what lies ahead. A few awards can be bagged if luck favors us.”
The Indian Bangla movie is being produced by Ashtami films- a joint set up of Sonika Singh Bhatti, a famous interior designer and Deepak Chandak, a biggie in the Hospitality Industry. Their next production is going to be the multi-starrer giant project ‘Swabhoomi’ which will actually release before ‘White Mischief’. Directed by Ujjal Chatterjee, the film stars Jackie Shroff, Amisha Patel, Priyanshu Chatterjee, Tapash Pal, Debosree Roy, Samrat, Tanushree and Shatabdi Roy.
