Actor Chandan Roy Sanyal will feature as the lead in Buddhadeb Dasgupta's yet untitled upcoming film, which is currently in the scripting stage. The female lead is yet to be announced. The actor has previously acted in the four-time National award-winning director’s films Tope (2016) and Urojahaj (2019), making this current movie their third collaboration.
Sanyal, who is also known for his performance in films like Kaminey (2009) and Jabariya Jodi (2019) as well as the web-series Kaali season 2 (2020), told the news agency, IANS, “I’m super excited and grateful to have such a celebrated film director show confidence in my craft. His films have won recognition at international film festivals the world over and it will be my honour to collaborate with him for the third time.”
The film revolves around a female journalist, who faces severe criticism at her workplace. “For a man to understand the plight of working women, it takes depth, sensitivity and empathy,” said Roy Sanyal. “Dasgupta sir has all this and more. That’s what makes the project compelling for me.”
