Actor-director Parambrata Chatterjee has started shooting his next directorial venture, Boudi Canteen, starring Subhasree Ganguly, Soham Chakraborty and Anusua Majumdar.

According to a report in Ei Samay, a Bengali newspaper, the film is based on the journey of India-born British chef Asma Khan and the character will be essayed by Ganguly. The director will be playing her husband. The story has been written by Aritra Sen and Somasree Ghosh while Samragnee Bandopadhyay has written the dialogues.

“This is the story of the existential quest of a married woman, who is a passionate cook,” stated Chatterjee.

“A large section of society only considers women successful when they achieve something similar to men. My film wants to convey that a woman can be equally successful in doing what she loves to do.”

The director also revealed that in the film, his character struggles with the criteria by which a man’s worth is often judged.

Majumdar will be seen as Ganguly’s mother-in-law and their conflict will be unusual, according to Chatterjee. “After directing so many films, I have really started enjoying the challenge of bringing out the best in the actors,” said the filmmaker.

Cinematographer Tiyash Sen is shooting the film in Kolkata while Joy Sarkar is in charge of composing the music.
