In my opinion, it is not necessary to become a person affected by Alzheimer's to play that role. If I have to go deep inside a character, become the character while the camera rolls, then I have to actually be dead while a death scene is depicted, the actor explained.
I had reviewed Dr. Subhendu Sen's story about the loneliness of an Alzheimer's patient and how he sees the world.
When I was told by directors Susdeshna Roy and Abhijit Guha about the film's storyline, which is inspired by Sen's story, I immediately agreed to do the film, he said.
He also revealed how his vast experience helped him portray the character.
I had seen many people suffering from Alzheimer's disease. I had the opportunity to interact with their families. It may be that these experiences helped me when I was working on the scenes before the camera. But it is not important to become the character and go out. from the shell later, he added.
