Like others, I don’t want to become popular by talking about my personal life every day: Birsa`
They don’t need to meet every day or chat on WhatsApp to be friends. No wonder when CT requested Rudranil Ghosh to quiz Birsa Dasgupta on their latest project, Bibaho Obhijaan, the duo happily agreed. Let’s see how the match progressed…
Rudranil Ghosh: Tell us briefly about Bibaho Obhijaan.
Birsa Dasgupta: Why don’t you tell us instead, since you have penned the story? Okay. I’ll tell you. It is a comic caper. The story revolves around two friends — Anupam (played by Ankush) and Rajat (played by you) — who share a strong camaraderie. While Anupam is a shy gentleman, who marries the rebellious Rai (Nusraat Faria), Rajat happens to be an outspoken guy, a debate champion, who decides for an arranged marriage with Maya (Sohini Sarkar). Maya is a simple woman, whose life revolves around TV serials. Bibaho Obhijaan is about marital adventures of these two couples. It’s a laugh riot — a playful tribute to the classic Tom & Jerry bonding between husbands and wives!
RG: This is again a new innings for you, as it is an ‘original’ commercial film. What are your expectations?
BD: There was a time when remakes used to work, but now the taste of the audience has changed. Though I don’t know why… I guess it is all about perceptions. There are actors who can dance and fight. And if you train them right, they can act too. But I also know many actors who’ve good acting skills, but don’t have the flexibility to dance or fight. These actors and directors believe that what they do is good and what they can’t is bad! I made a film, Shudhu Tomari Jonyo, which was a remake. We all know how it fared at the box office. After that, I made Shob Bhooturey, which was completely different in its essence. I always try to make different kinds of films. Bibaho Obhijaan is a total entertainer with no hidden meaning. Every couple has their share of fights, misunderstandings and obhimaan. But at the end of the day, it is love that binds them together. When Rudra narrated the plot, I felt this was one of the stories that didn’t have class or mass, urban or rural divisions. So, the audience would be able to relate to it…..Click here to read the full storySource : bit.ly/2xhU3p7
