Prosenjit Jaya In Film Against The Backdrop of The Pandemic


Prosenjit Chatterjee and Jaya Ahsan are once again set to come together for Indraadip Das Gupta’s next film set against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic. Title of the film is Asatoma Sadgamaya ...... talks about the struggle of human existence and has just five characters in all.

The film shows how this pandemic has become a part of our psyche, affecting our overall behaviour. Though COVID-19 is the backdrop, the film is not entirely on the pandemic. 

Besides Prosenjit and Jaya, the film also stars Rudranil Ghosh and Arun Mukhopadhyay. Search is still on for the fifth character. Prosenjit, who is set to hear the script on July 20, said, “The initial talks with ID are over. I like the film’s concept and will go through the script soon. What I like about him is the sensitivity with which he tells his stories through a broad canvas, which is cinema. I’m keeping my fingers crossed till the next step.”

Jaya Ahsan is eagerly waiting to be in Kolkata as soon as flight services resume, so that she can start shooting for the film. “When the director narrated the story to me, I could instantly relate to it. All of us are facing psychological challenges in the wake of this pandemic. I’m so looking forward to working in this film,” 

While the original story is by Indraadip, the script is being penned jointly by Padmanabha Dasgupta and him. The music of the film, which will go on the floors from September-end, is composed by the director himself and Subhankar Bhar is the man behind the camera.
