Kolkata, Feb 13, 2013 (Washington Bangla Radio): Advik Entertainment is going to venture into Kolkata Bangla movie production with their debut production "Kaal Madhumash". K.N Sharma, head of Advik, told told WBRi at a recent press meet, “I wanted to venture into something new. Though I am not exactly a movie buff myself, I am aware of Bengali films going through a wonderful phase. So it is high time we invested in films and so here I am.”

The Bangla cinema is directed by Prabir Roy and will see the silver-screen debut of Sudip Sarkar, who will appear opposite actress Rimjhim Gupta to lead the star cast.

Bengali actress Rimjhim Gupta said, “I have a very challenging role in the film. The script gave me the impression that I would get lot of opportunity to test my acting skills in this film.There is an exciting love affair and there are many twists too. I think this is going to be a very good movie with a broad appeal.”

When asked about his excitement on his big screen debut, actor Sudip Sarkar said, “I was initially very nervous, wondering how someone as inexperienced as I would deliver a performance in a full length Bengali feature film. But the director Prabir Roy, our co-actor Arindam Sil and others were so down to earth and helpful that I was able to overcome my apprehension.”

Kal Madhumas stars acclaimed actor and producer Arindam Sil in a Pivotal role. He disclosed what drew him to the film: “I know Prabir Roy from the very beginning of my career in films. I now have so many designations beside my name - director, executive director etc - that people do not remember that I am primarily an actor. Few offer me a major acting role these days - I end up with mostly cameos. So when the director offered me such a good role, I did not hesitate to grab it.”
