Jaisalmer Fort reminds Anindya of Sonar Kella

Anindya Chatterjee is shooting in Jaisalmer for Shailik Bhowmick’s psychological thriller Burning Butterfly. But even there, the actor connected with his Bengali roots. Our shoot in Jaisalmer was hectic, so we didn’t have much time to visit the tourist spots. Only I got to see the Jaisalmer Fort and it was a fantastic experience. It immediately reminded me of Satyajit Ray’s Sonar Kella.” Speaking about the film, the actor said, “It revolves around a couple whose car breaks down on the way while driving from Kolkata to Mahendragarh. Then begins a series of weird incidents inside a castle and that is the crux of the story,” said the actor, who will be back in the city tonight. “Only one day of the shoot is left and it will happen in Kolkata,” he added.

Talking about his character in the film, Anindya said, “I play Ronojoy, who goes on an outing with his boss’s wife, and then certain unnatural incidents start happening. The film also shows we all live in uncertainty and can die anytime.”

Anindya, who loves cycling, is training under Divij Shah and Aditya Shah. “Divij is a silver medal winner in Asian Road Para-Cycling Championships while Aditya is going for nationals this year. Both are my trainers as I plan to take part in a cycling competition next year. The passion for cycling developed during the lockdown and now I cycle from 5 am to 8 am every morning covering near about 50 km,” said the actor.
