Abhimanyu Mukherjee’s next is a short comic thriller. Titled ‘Iskaboner Rani’, it stars Ushasi Ray and Kanchan Mullick in the lead. Recently the trailer was released online and it received quite a lot of praise.
Ushasi says she has been getting a lot of positive feedback about the trailer. Her character is a comic one and it’s for the first time that the popular actress is exploring this genre. According to her, it’s a very different character from what she has played so far.
Incidentally, this is the first time Ushasi has collaborated with Abhimanyu and Kanchan. “My experience of working with both of them has been fantastic. Abhi Da is such an amazing director. He is very friendly and I am glad that he cast me in this role. And with Kanchan Da, it was a great learning experience too. I have known him for many years and have been seeing his work since my childhood. It was like a dream come true for me to work with him,” added the actress.
Meanwhile, Abhimanyu has directed another film titled ‘Lockdown’. It deals with human psychology during the pandemic. It’s a romantic drama where three stories run parallel and somewhere at the end they merge. What binds the characters together is the film all about. In one of the stories, Abhimanyu has cast his wife Manali opposite Om.
