Nayak Bengali Movie Uttam Kumar Sharmila TagoreSrijit and Nandana are buddies, and once while talking about films that influenced them, they both blurted out NAYAK (BUY DVD), referring to Satyajit Ray's 1966 classic starring Uttam Kumar, Sharmila Tagore, Bireswar Sen, Somen Bose, Nirmal Ghosh, Premangsu Bose, Sumita Sanyal, Kamu Mukherjee and others.

The story of Autograph is set in four cities - Bangalore, Kolkata, Mumbai and Santiniketan. Nandana says, "What I love about the characters Sreejit jas written including mine, is that they are uncompromisingly real, yet not predictable at all."
