We wish great success for Angshumaner Chhobi. Watch the trailer of Angsumaner Chhobi and check out the EXCLUSIVE interview with Indrani Halder at CalcuttaTube.
Calcutta Tube: You are portraying the character of an actress in ‘Angshumaner Chhobi’. Does it become easier to act in the role an actress, since you are an actress in real life?
Indrani Haldar: Being an actress in real life, I am well acquainted with the attributes of an actress and some of the sequences I am acting in, may have been true in reality. But actress Indrani Halder and the character Madhura are two different persons and they have different attitudes and philosophies about life. The only similarities they have are in their professions.
Calcutta Tube: You have previously worked with director Atanu Ghosh in his telefilms. ‘Angshumaner Chhobi’ is the first feature film by Atanu Ghosh and this is the first time you are working together in a feature film. Please share your experience working with him in the feature film?
Indrani Haldar: The canvas of a telefilm is totally different than that of a feature film. A feature film has a much larger canvas. All works of Atanu Ghosh focus on relationships and convey some philosophy about life. Atanu has put a lot of effort in ‘Angshumaner Chhobi‘ to distinguish its canvas from that of a telefilm. A lot of times when telefilm directors have made feature films, there have been instances where they have not always been able to maintain the proper canvas. I think Atanu has done a great job as far as the canvas of a telefilm is concerned. ‘Angshumaner Chhobi‘ has been made keeping the big screen in mind, in terms of making, presentation and subject.
Calcutta Tube: You have worked with Soumitra Chattopadhyay in many of your films before and also in ‘Angshumaner Chhobi’. Please share your experience working with the legendary actor.
Indrani Haldar: It is always a fantastic experience working with Soumitra Chattopadhyay. There are so many learning situations for me when working with him. The passion he puts into his roles even at this age amazes us. I doubt if I could be that way when I reach his age. And the biggest thing is that even today he would ask us if the shot he gave was all right. This is what I would call the generosity of an artist. He has a big heart.
