Rajib, who has always praised Soham for his acting skills, is all set to work with him again. The last time the duo worked together was in ‘Amanush 2’, in 2015. The director has also decided to rope in Koushani Mukherjee in the lead. “The film is yet untitled. But we have decided to go on the floors from June 5. It is a dark love story. This is the first time that I will be directing an original story, so this one is indeed special. While the story is by Dibendyu, Abhimanyu Mukherjee has penned the script.
The story revolves around Chandan, aka Chandu, who is the right hand man of a coal mafia in Jharkhand. Chandu meets a mysterious girl, played by Koushani. Chandu realises that the life he was forced to live so far was not what he wanted. Chandu elopes with the girl to escape the underworld. Will Chandu’s life get worse? Or will they live happily ever after is the film all about,” said Rajib, whose film, Love Story, starring Bonny Sengupta and Rittika Sen, is ready for release.
The director added, “I have worked with Koushani in Tomake Chai. I have done many films with Soham. Everyone knows he is my fave actor. But I have not directed Soham and Koushani as an on-screen jodi before. So, I thought it would be interesting.”
The music of the film is by Savvy and Dev Sen. Gopi Bhagat is the DoP of the film, which will be shot in Hyderabad, Kolkata and Jharkhand. Soham, too, is happy to be working with Rajib after four years. “It is a story of the underworld, where love plays a major role. I play a mafia who goes through a lot in his life,” the actor said.
