The story of the movie is so interesting that it took me just a second to nod after listening to the script. My character in Saanjhbati is also very interesting. Working with Leena di and Saibalda is enriching since I learn a lot from them. I am working with Dev again after password and in fact is a brilliant co-actor Paoli dam who plays one of the leads said revealing how she came on board for ‘Sanjhbati’.

Sulekha is a lonely and short tempered elderly woman who lives alone in Kolkata. Her son lives in London and is busy with his work. Hence he cannot meet his mother often. She is looked after by her caretakers Chandan and Fuli. Chana Babu, her neighbor is also her well wisher. That’s how the story of ‘Sanjhbati’ moves on and after years we would get to see Dev beyond his ‘superstar’ image. He plays Chandan, an average Bengali town boy, in the film.

Speaking about the shooting experiences, Dev said he had to do nothing to portray Chandan in this film. “I used to sleep until the call for my shot came. When I woke, I usually had a sad face and that helped me to portray the character well. As far as working with Paoli is concerned, I had been her silent admirer and I have really appreciated the way she has come a long way from our starting days in the industry ”said the popular actor.

Produced by Bengali Talkies, ‘ Sanjhbati ’ has an ensemble cast including Lily Chakraborty (Sulekha), Dev (Chandan), Paoli dam (Fuli), Soumitra Chatterjee (Chana Babu), Santu Mukherjee, Sohini Sengupta, Sudip Mukherjee, Sayani Ghosh, Saptarshi Moulik and others in fundamental roles.
