Mumbai, March 25 (Calcutta Tube) Bengali superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee is set to embark on a new journey – he will direct a film which will go on floors by the year-end. He says he will leave it to the audience to decide whether he is a better actor or a better director.
‘I will be directing a film very soon. My agenda is to start the film by the end of this year. It may be in Bengali or both in Bengali and Hindi. That’s my final goal,’ Prosenjit told IANS on phone from Kolkata.
For the National Award winning actor, direction would be a new challenge.
‘Honestly speaking, I want to keep it as a challenge. In next five to 10 years my audience, who love me, has to decide whether I am a better actor or a better director. I am very serious about direction,’ said Prosenjit.
The actor is working on two scripts and said: ‘I am working on two subjects. I am not very sure. One will be a Bengali cinema and the other will be both in Bengali and Hindi.’
The 48-year-old, who is currently reigning over Bengali cinema, is known for his performance in ‘Chokher Bali’ and ‘Dosar’ and recently he received appreciation for his work in Goutam Ghose’s ‘Moner Manush’ and Srijit Mujherji’s ‘Autograph’.
Prosenjit says if he won’t get an offer like ‘Moner Manush’, his directorial venture will be started soon.
‘We actors are very greedy. I didn’t know I would be doing a film like ‘Moner Manush’. If I again get a film like that, it (directorial debut) might get stalled, otherwise, yes, by the end of this year or early next year (I will start directing),’ said Prosenjit.
