Srijit facing camera in Anjan's next film
After two back-to-back successful films, "Autograph" and "Baishe Srabon", filmmaker Srijit Mukherjee is all set to face the camera in this year's national award winner Anjan Dutta's film 'Dutta vs Dutta'. Srijit, 34, who had earlier turned up in Aparna Sen's "Iti Mrinalini" in a significant role, said he would not speak much about his new assignment.
"Anjan da is my mentor who has helped me evolve into a director. I greatly learnt the craft from him before moving to film direction," said Srijit Srijit, who was speaking on location at a dingy north Kolkata neighbourhood last week, said his character is the reflection of an intellectual of 1970s as the film sought to recapture the spirit of Kolkata in those era.
"My character basically sustains itself on poem and music of those days and it is a reflection of that phase," he said.
Dutta, whose film "Ranjana ami ar Asbona" recently bagged three national honours.
