Meghnad Bhattacharya , Anjan Dutt , Chiranjeet Chakraborty and Sreela Majumder among others.
Since your first Bengali film is receiving critical acclaim from serious moviegoers, is there any plan to direct more movies?
“I will write the script for another movie that I plan to direct. It is a passionate story of a recognized author, and I would love to broadcast Prosenjit Chatterjee in that. But it will not be before 2021, reveals Arijit, who is also working on several scripts for the upcoming films, both in Tollywood and in Bollywood.
By the way, Surjo Prithibir Chardike Ghore won the Best Director award in the Indian language section of the Kolkata International Film Festival last year. The film is based on the real-life story of KC Pal, obsessed with the theory that the sun revolves around the Earth.
While talking about his film, the director explained that Surjo Prithibir Charidike Ghore allows him to show his political ideology. “The question of whether making a political film is safe comes from the intention of making money with it. In the case of this movie, I went for crowdfunding and then got the support of Pawanji (Kanodia, producer), which has a different approach to film financing. Another producer could have asked for a thriller without a political angle. I wouldn't mind writing such scripts, but the black genre also has a political background, ”said Arijit.
