The last time Prosenjit Chatterjee was seen in a Hindi film was in Dibakar Banerjee's political thriller, Shanghai (2012). That was three years ago. However, if everything falls in place, the actor might soon be seen in another Hindi film, this time alongside Aashiqui 2 actor Aditya Roy Kapoor. The film, confirms the actor, will be a comedy.
The project will be helmed by debutant director Gautam Parvi, who has assisted prominent filmmakers such as Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Dibakar Banerjee. The actor says that though has liked the script, he is yet to sign on the dotted lines. "I have read the script and liked the concept. I will be travelling to Mumbai end-July for another meeting," says the Autograph actor.
Prosenjit played a social activist, Dr Ahmadi, in Shanghai. Though he didn't have much screen time, the Bengali superstar was lauded for his performance in the film. After Shanghai, Prosenjit also acted in Rajesh Pillai's Hindi film Traffic, a remake of a Malayalam film of the same name. The film also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Jimmy Shergill and Bengali actor Parambrata Chatterjee. However, the film was shot almost a year back and the actor is still unsure about the film's status and release date.
Prosenjit has been in the film industry for three decades now, but he is in no haste to do a Bollywood film. "I will do a Bollywood film only if I find something really attractive. I was never in a rush. I am happy with the kind of films being made in the Bengali film industry today," says the Moner Manush actor. That said, Prosenjit also informs that he will be soon direct a Hindi film. "Whenever I direct my next, it will be a Hindi film," he signs off.
