After having entertained the audience as an actor in several films, Rudranil Ghosh has now donned the director’s hat for an ad commercial. Confirming the news, Rudranil said, “I just directed an ad for a shoe company, with Sohini Sarkar, Kanchan Mullick, Biswanath Basu, and Anirban Bhattacharya in the cast. Each of these actors knows their craft so well that I didn’t have to do much other than being the captain of the ship where I ensured the shoot was being done safely in this new normal and everybody was working with a happy mind.” How was it to be behind the camera, we ask Rudranil? “Well, the captain of the ship has a lot of responsibilities, but I enjoyed every bit of it. As a director I make sure that my cast and crew are happy and pampered so they deliver their best.”
On the acting front, Rudranil is currently shooting for Pratidwandi, directed by Saptaswa Basu. Does he plan to direct a film someday? “I would surely love to direct a film but it is not about me wanting to direct a film, it’s about whether any producer will finance that film,” said Rudranil.
The actor is looking forward to start shooting for Indradeep Das Gupta’s yet-untitled film. “Prosenjit Chatterjee and I play the main characters in this lockdown film. Jaya Ahsan and Kanchan Mullick are also part of the cast. The film shows how the meaning of life and equations of all relationships changed in this pandemic. The film will go on the floors from the end of October,” informed the actor.
Rudranil will fly off to London on September 27 along with Nusrat Jahan and Gaurav Chakraborty to shoot for Sayantan Ghoshal’s film. And in November the actor will be in Mumbai to complete Amit Sharma’s Maidan, shooting of which got stalled because of the pandemic.
