Economist turned-director Srijit Mukherji’s directorial debut ‘Autograph’ has screened at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival and received well appreciation.
‘Autograph’, inspired by Satyajit Ray’s ‘Nayak’ has earned rave reviews in Kolkata too. The film has already completed 100 days in the metropolis. It will soon be available for buying from Amazon, renting from Netflix and watch online on dingora.com or on Roku – DMV channel.
Talking about Autograph, Prosenjit has said in an interiew “I play Arun Chatterjee, the top superstar of Bengali cinema. That is just one layer of this three-layered role. One of them is as the superstar. The second one is about a film that is being made within the film called Aajker Nayak in which Arun Chatterjee is playing the role of a superstar within the film. The third dimension of the character is the man behind the mask of the star who is often misunderstood by the negative qualities the media, his friends and peers in and out of the industry have vested him with. This man often peeps out of these two masks he wears – one as the hero of Autograph and one as the hero of Aajker Nayak being shot within the film, and is saddened for being misunderstood so.”
