Jisshu is a compliment to Vidya, Alia
Jisshu U Sengupta It is in high demand, not only in Tollywood, but also in Bollywood and the Telugu film industry. In addition to a good number of Bengali films, he recently filmed for Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2 and Anu Menon’s Shakuntala Devi. The actor is a compliment to his protagonists in both films: Alia Bhatt & Vidya Balan . About Vidya, he said, “Vidya is a wonderful lady. She knew Nilanjanaa & my sister-in-law, Chandana, for long through Pradeep Sarkar. In between, we would bump into each other at film festivals & other events. Then, we worked together in NTR. She follows a lot of Bengali films & knows my movies with Rituda (Rituparno Ghosh). Before doing Begum Jaan , she saw Rajkahini & loved my performance in the film. Recently, at a reading, she asked me about the films made in Kolkata. She’s one of the sweetest co-stars I have worked with.”
About Alia, Jisshu said she is a very nice girl. “She is young & happens to be one of the finest actors in the country now. Her mood depends on what scenes she’s shooting on a certain day. If it’s a fun scene, she’d be chirpy on that day. If it’s a serious scene, she would be in that zone. Working with Mahesh Bhatt was a revelation for me. It’s incredible the way he motivates an actor in his film. We have become very close & he has given me that space. I am thankful to him for that,” he said.
