Director Pijush Saha will introduce his son Prince Prachurya in his film Jaalbandi, which features Darshana Banik and Paayel Sarkar.

The suspense thriller is based on the Samaresh Majumdar novel of the same name. Actress June Malia, Pampa Saha, Dipankar De and Kharaj Mukherjee will also be seen in crucial roles in the film.

In the film, Anish (Prachurya) is determined to build his career as an insurance agent. It takes a toll on him when he tries to balance assuring security to his clients and fulfilling his targets. In the process, he comes across unprecedented developments in a span of 72 hours, which change his life forever, by making him go through a series of reality checks.

Prachurya, who has seen his father working with celebrated artistes in his films, was encouraged to learn a lot regarding the profession, despite having a lot of questions regarding acting since childhood. "I have seen my father making new films from time to time to serve new actors, actresses, side characters and main character actors in front of an audience. With the passage of time, I came to understand that the method of making films is not only to break oneself and one’s thoughts but to rebuild them,” said the newcomer told the Mid-Day newspaper.

Prachurya feels his arrival in the film industry is going to be at a crucial time. "I have accepted my father as my idol and I want to follow his path. The novel Jaalbandi became one of my favourites when I read it first. So, I had a kind of a whim. Now the rest is upon the audience," he added.
