He is scared of a lot things but definitely not ghosts, claimed Abir Chatterjee at a get-together of Sandip Ray’s Jekhane Bhooter Bhoy team in HHI on Saturday. Abir stars in Brown Shaheber Bari, one of the three stories in the film. “I play Calcutta boy Ranjan whose hobby is to collect old books. One day he stumbles upon Brown Shaheb’s diary and wonders if all that’s written is true. To uncover the truth, he visits Brown Shaheb’s house in Kalimpong,” he added. So, what is he scared of? “Darkness and the unknown,” came the candid reply.
“I neither believe nor disbelieve in ghosts. I’ve heard stories from people about their encounters with ghosts, I haven’t had the opportunity of meeting one yet!” laughed Saswata Chatterjee (seen here with screen-wife Moushumi), who plays Pratap in Bhoot Bhobishyot, the third story.
Subhrajit Datta plays Sitesh, a novelist in Anath Babur Bhoy.
Paran Bandopadhyay (left), who plays the narrator Tarini Khuro, said: “I don’t believe in ghosts but I’m sure people will be curious to know the end.” “I don’t believe in ghosts but I believe in souls. I have been a part of a planchet once!” said Bhaswar Chatterjee, who plays Anik in Brown Shaheber Bari.
“I am very nervous! People have given us positive feedback about the promos. I’m waiting for their feedback to the film now,” said Sandip Ray. Produced by Shree Venkatesh Films and Surinder Films, Jekhane Bhooter Bhoy releases on December 21.
