Actress Srabanti Chatterjee will play the protagonist in Kaushik Ganguly’s upcoming romantic thriller, Kaberi Antardhan (2020). Also featuring Prosenjit Chatterjee in the lead, the film is Chatterjee’s first feature film with the national-award winning director.

The actress first worked with Ganguly in a telefilm titled Chhadmabeshi. “I consider myself very lucky for this opportunity. I was a kid when I first worked with him. I want to thank Surinder Films for taking up this story as well,” stated the actress, who is mostly popular for her mainstream films.

“Also, I cannot thank Bumba Da (Prosenjit) enough. He is my favourite and my journey of facing the camera started with him. We played father and daughter then,” the actress shared about Swapan Saha’s Mayar Badhon (1997). “Now the audience will get to see us in a completely new avatar. At this moment, I can only say that I love the character of Kaberi. I am not allowed to reveal more,” said the actress, who is currently shooting for the film in North Bengal.

Set during the emergency, Kaberi Antardhan also has Churni Ganguly, Kaushik Sen, Ambarish Bhattacharya, Indranil Sengupta and Indrasish Roy playing crucial roles. The music of the film will be composed by Prabuddha Banerjee.

Kaberi Antardhan is Banerjee’s fourth work with Ganguly, as a music director. “I have worked with him in three completely different films and he threw a lot of challenges for me. He always gives a lot of freedom and is also clear about what he wants,” stated the music director of Nagarkirtan (2019), Jyeshthoputro (2019) and Lokkhi Chhele (2020).

“I found the story of this film quite interesting. It is a love story with the backdrop of a political thriller. I am sure I will have a completely different experience this time,” he stated. 

Kaberi Antardhan will either release at the end of this year or early next year.
