Actor Abir Chatterjee seems to the blue-eyed boy of every director. And rightly so! If all goes well, Chatterjee will have a total of eight releases in 2018. Earlier this year, we saw him Manoj Michigan’s Aami Joy Chatterjee, Debaloy Bhattacharya’s Biday Byomkesh, Dhrubo Banerjee’s Guptodhoner Sondhane and Arindam Bhattacharya’s Flat No 609. While these films largely belong to the genre of mystery thrillers, the actor will treat his fans to a wide array of flavours in the last quarter of year.
The actor, who is a rare combination of critical acclaim and box office success, will again be seen as Byomkesh in Arindam Sil’s Byomkesh Gowtro that is slated for a Durga Pujo release. In an exclusive chat with Box Office India, the actor has said, “During Pujo, I have another release called Manojder Adbhut Bari that is directed by Anindya Chatterjee and produced by Shibuda (Shiboprosad Mukhopadhyay). I have done a cameo in the film. I cannot say much about the film because I want my presence in it to be a surprise for the audience. In November, the sequel to Bishorjon will release with the same cast, Jaya Ahsan and I. The film is called Bijoya and will be directed by Kaushik Ganguly. People’s expectations are sky high. We have shot for the film in a very hush-hush manner.”
No, this is not it. Chatterjee further added, “During Christmas, Srijit Mukherji’s Shah Jahan Regency will release. Shree Venkatesh Films is producing it. It is Srijit’s take and an adaptation of Shankar’s very popular novel, Chowinghee.”
For his fans, we have a little sneak peek for you. This sought-after-actor will also be seen in an independent film, directed by Michigan. The “hard-hitting love story” will have Paoli Dam playing his love interest. Titled Tritiyo Adhyay, it will release next year.
We cannot wait for these films to hit the theatres. Let us know what you are looking forward to the most in the comment section below!
