Rituparno Ghosh has found Byomkesh Bakshis Satyabati in the dusky Pauli Dam (picture right).
When approached by Rituparno, Pauli readily agreed to play wife to Prosenjits Byomkesh in Arthamonorthom. The first of Rituparnos Byomkesh films, Arthamonorthom is where Sharadindu Bandopadhyays sleuth meets and marries Satyabati. This will be Paulis second film with Rituparno; the first is the yet-to-release Shob Charitra Kalponik, co-starring Bipasha Basu and Prosenjit.
I never expected Rituda to offer me another film after Shob Charitra Kalponik and that too a role opposite Bumbada (Prosenjit)! I am very happy that he has thought of me as Satyabati. But I am yet to start my homework as I havent discussed the script with Rituda, said Pauli.
In Shob Charitra Kalponik Pauli plays Prosenjits muse, while Bipasha plays his Bengali wife.
