Dev, Gourab and Jeet rely on quirky candids to break the quarantine monotony


Who knew Tollywood’s leading men were so good with the self-timer? From Jisshu Sengupta and Dev to the iconic Prosenjit Chatterjee, some of Kolkata’s busiest men are making their quarantine count as they chronicle their work-from-home days for their followers. Here are some efficient, celebrity-approved hacks that can help you ace your Instagram skills.

The Jisshu Sengupta style:

Inspo 1: You may not have Jisshu’s flawless salt and pepper hair, but working out your best angles will always serve you well.


Inspo 2: Fitness is a priority especially during the quarantine mausam. A casual mirror selfie in your gym tank top is the simplest way to keep your feed topical.

The Prosenjit Chatterjee style:

Inspo 1: Step out into the sun for your next cup of tea, like Prosenjit. Don’t forget your self-timer.

Inspo 2: If you have a cosy corner and the right lamp, that’s all you need for a quick candid at the end of a long WFH day.

The Parambrata Chatterjee style:

Inspo 1: Home alone with nothing to do? Show off your living space like Parambrata.

Inspo 2: If you have a green patch in your home, go soak up the sun for some much-needed Vitamin D and don’t forget to take a snap.

The Abir Chatterjee style:

Inspo 1: Do you also have an I-woke-up-to-this skyline like Abir? Grab your cuppa and enjoy the view, and let others too…through your photo!

Inspo 2: We have said it before and we’ll say it again, don’t waste a dress-up day. If you’ve finally got yourself into some formals, take a snap!

The Jeet style:

Inspo 1: Jeet’s fierce bathrobe reel is simple and efficient.

Inspo 2: Having a good hair day? That calls for a photo!

The Dev style:

Inspo 1: Got a quirky shirt and a cool wall like Dev? Put it to good use on Instagram.

Inspo 2: Dev seems to be a fan of showing off his cheeky tee collection and we aren’t complaining.

The Ankush Hazra pose:

Inspo 1: If you’re not pausing for a sheet mask amid a workday. Are you even quarantining right?

Inspo 2: Even a simple tabletop game like carrom can help you de-stress. Ankush found his old carrom board and you should too!

The Gourab Chatterjee pose:

Inspo 1: Picked up a new sport during quarantine? Don’t forget to get the gear too, so you can show off your skills on Instagram. Gourab’s sunny cycling jersey gets full marks!

Inspo 2:  Have a comfy aram kedara? Grab some coffee and a self-timer like Gourab.

The Anirban Bhattacharya pose:

Inspo 1: There’s no better time to show off your massive bookcase and Anirban clearly agrees.

Inspo 2: Cosy corners can be very useful. A soft-focus light and a block print shirt can make a photo break worthwhile.

The Saswata Chatterjee pose:

Inspo 1: ‘Illumine’ even while bidding a good night, like Saswata.

Inspo 2: Monochrome silhouettes are timeless and Saswata clearly knows that.

The Riddhi Sen pose:

Inspo 1: If you’re out of new props, just pose with your guitar. A Godfather poster also helps.

Inspo 2: A casual night by the fairy lights as Coldplay sings ‘lights will guide you home,’ is a mood.

The Vikram Chatterjee pose:

Inspo 1: Messy hair, don’t care. Copy that, Vikram.

Inspo 2: A statement chair promises an Instagram-worthy photo. Bookmark this idea, ASAP.

Stay safe, stay home! And, keep those fab photos coming!
