Some movies directors pen down their movie characters keeping someone special in their mind. Even Legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray proved it on several occasions and his most famous creation was ‘Nayak’ (1996). He kept Bengali’s heartthrob Uttam Kumar in his mind and sculpted the protagonist of the film.
Director Aniket Chattopadhyay has done the same for his upcoming movie ‘Shankar Mudi’, which has actor-director Kaushik Ganguly in the lead role. After a lot of speculation and bottleneck, the maker of this film finally announced the release date, it being 15th March 2019.
It seems Kaushik Ganguly was a perfect fit. The movie revolves around the aftermath on the ecosystem of affinity, solidarity, and humanism in the neighborhood. How the people living struggles to adjust to their daily life when a shopping mall comes up. Speaking with Jiyo Bangla, director Aniket Chatterjee said, “This movie is a showcase of reality and Kaushik was the perfect fit. Surely the audience will get a glimpse of the struggle those people face every single day.”
The ensemble cast includes big names from the industry such as Soumitra Chatterjee, Shantilal Mukherjee, Saswata Chatterjee, Kanchan Mullick, Biswanath Basu, Jisshu Sengupta, Anjan Dutta.
