Kaushik brilliant as actor in Laptop: Rahul Bose
Actor Rahul Bose, who plays a businessman separated from his wife in Kaushik Ganguly's film 'Laptop' is all praises about the director while modestly leaving to the audience to judge his role. "Kaushik is a very fine actor.
He has a certain view of acting and he has given the finest performance in the film, which tells the story of a laptop changing hands," Rahul said during the premiere of the film last Friday. "He is simply brilliant as an actor, even better than a director," he said about the film which received was loved by the audience at the Dubai Film Festival. Speaking about the filming, Rahul said he suggested to the director that some shots be taken three or four times to get a perfect one, which sometimes slowed down the process.
"But I said, 'Kaushik, it is a film and not a serial'," Rahul recalled. Asked how much space the director gave to his cast in 'Laptop', Rahul said, "Kaushik gives lot of freedom to his actors. He indulges his actors." Asked about his role, Rahul said, "He is a businessman separated from his wife. The laptop ends up with him one day and his story is interlinked with three other stories." Kaushik, who plays a blind writer, said, "I never felt any pressure.
I have a friend from the Narendrapur Blind Boys' Academy and I followed his movements." Kaushik said that he had earlier offered the role to director Goutam Ghosh and actor Mithun Chakraborty. "But while Goutamda had other commitments, Mithun had date problems. I then decided to do it myself as requested by my team." He said that the blind singer Sadhan Gupta was related to him from his wife Churni's side. PTI
