"Keno Mon Take Chaye" is the fourth Kolkata Bangla movie for actor Raaj and his second movie with director Milan Bhowmik (after Mon Bole Priya Priya). It is also his second film with actress Oindrila starring opposite him.

He had a nice experience shooting for the film and learned a lot while continuing to sharpen his acting skills as he naturally progresses in his career. He is happy with the way the film turned out, and is confident of a positive reception by viewers.

Talking about the Tollywood film, Raaj says though the title might suggest a romance drama, Keno Mon Take Chaaye is much more than a love story. There are awesome locations, and striking comedy. He specially mentions some sequences where the audience will be tickled into laughter but rapidly transition into pathos. Bengalees are essentially sentimental, and the script writer has kept that in mind. But he reminds us that Keno Mon Takey Chaaye is squarely a commercial film.

Raaj credits Milan Bhowmik for getting him where he is today - the director has also been his tutor. Other than Raaj and Oindrila, the Bangla movie also stars Rimjhim Mitra, Siddhartha, Biplab Chatterjee, Mrinal Mukherjee, Arpita Baker, Santana Bose, Mousumi Saha, Subhasish Mukhopadhyay and others.

Music is a significant part of success of any Bengali movie, and this films music is great, says Raaj. People are listening to the songs, and he is personally receiving a lot of congratulatory messages.

As Raaj eloquently puts it, a person learns while working, and there is no end to learning, before signing off.
