Kolkata, July 30 (Washington Bangla Radio): “There is nothing new in the role of the mother that I am playing in this film. I have done similar roles in a number of films earlier. If the character gets a different treatment due to the vision of the director, then it will be something different” said actress Laboni Sarkar while shooting for Bengali film Bijoyini at Bharat Lakshmi Studios. The scene which was being shot at the studio involved Laboni Sarkar and Angshuman in a mother-son conversation about Angshuman’s future course of study at the engineering college.

The director Susanta Pal Chowdhury in between checking the props in the set and explaining the shots to the actors shed some light on his film. “The name of the film is Bijoyini because the true Bijoyini in the film is the character of the mother Sandhya. How she struggles to make her son educated, the hardships that she has to bear are all highlighted in the story. When her son leaves her and becomes a hen pecked husband of the rich girl, the trauma of the mother has also been shown in the film” said the director. The film has five songs. A theme song sung by Subhomita plays in the background whenever Sandhya faces any difficulties in her life. Rupankar, Kuheli and Rik Biswas have sung the other songs. The outdoor shooting of the film will be done in North Bengal. The director is also busy deciding on the lead cast of his next film “Charnock in the city” which will be going on floors in September. Charnock will be played by Biswajit. The lead characters have not been selected yet but he plans to take Jishu Sengupta and Mouboni.

In a white sari and a bun Laboni Sarkar looked like the typical mother that she has been playing in so many films. The actress even joked and said that she is the representative of all the mothers of West Bengal. Commenting on her role in the film, the actress said “I play the role of Sandhya Dutta. After her husband’s death, she works hard to educate her son. She works as a maid, sews clothes and does every kind of job to earn a little more for her family. She is the typical mother whom everyone is used to watching in the Bengali films”. Apart from this film, the actress is is busy working for Chander Pahar and Khiladi.

Angshuman who is playing the role of Abani talked with our WBRI correspondent and shed light on his character. “I play the role of Abani in this film. After the death of his father, it is due to the efforts of his mother that he receives education. However he realizes that his mother’s income is not enough for a good life. In between all this, he falls in love with Manjuri (played by actress Komolika) and marries her. From an obedient son, he becomes a hen-pecked husband. It is later when he becomes a father he understands what his mother must have felt at his transformation” said the actor. The actor who had worked with Laboni Sarkar in about ten films was very comfortable sharing screen space with her. Angshuman has also completed shooting for Ardhangini where he shares screen space with Mahesh Manjrekar. He will be leaving for Hyderabad on the 1st of August for Rajiv’s next film Bindaas.
