[Bengali Actor Souryadeep Ghosh]Washington, DC, May 11, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Ananya Paul talks to Souryadeep Ghosh in this audio interview with young upcoming actor from Kolkata. Souryadeep debuted in the world of Bengali cinema with a role of an assistant art director in award-winning film-maker Atanu Ghosh's (interview) Angshumaner Chobi, and subsequently appeared in Sanghamitra Chaudhuri's (interview) Rose Villa. He plays a lead role in Sanghamitra's docu-feature Bidehir Khonje Rabindranath that recently premiered in Kolkata on the occasion of Rabindranath Tagore's 150th birthday.

Souryadeep had always had great interest in cinema and the art of acting. He has also acted in television serials, and on live stage theater. He touches upon his training on acting, with stress on the differences in appearing on stage and before the camera, and expresses his desire to continue work in interesting roles in films that are different from main-stream commercial cinema productions.

In Bidehir Khonje Rabindranath, Souryadeep plays a young man in his early twenties who is neither interested in, nor knows much about, the works of Rabindranath. He happens to go to Santiniketan on a fun outing with friends. One of his friends joining him in the trip is Deep, whose elder brother Jeet (played by Abhishek Chatterjee) accompanies them.

Subsequently they start discovering Rabindranath and some remarkable aspects of the creative genius, including how Rabindranath attempted to establish contact with his departed loved ones.

There is a possibility Souryadeep could be playing the lead role in a forthcoming Bengali film titled "Campus". He is also working with Sanghamitra's Hindi debut feature film "Strings of Passion".

Ananya Paul is a journalist and senior producer of a major television news channel in Calcutta.
