Years after three films were made on Bhagat Singh around the same time; it is set to happen again. This time, it’s Surjya Sen of the Chittagong uprising, who will have two films made on him, Ashutosh Gowarikar’s ‘Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey’ starring Abhishek Bachchan and Shonali Bose’s (of Amu fame) Chittagong starring Manoj Bajpai.
According to Shonali, she and her husband have worked on it for four years. They’re surprised that Gowarikar is making a film on it. However, they have discussed it with Gowarikar who has assured them that he is doing a different aspect of the historical event.
Shonali admits that she likes Gowarikar and his films a lot. He had also praised her Amu when it released.
Gowarikar admits that he knows about their film and wishes them the best of luck. His film is almost complete while Chittagong will complete around February.
