First and foremost I want to thank all my well wishers for the overwhelming love. 4000+ members on TGCF! Quite a feat! Congratulations to the administrators for running the page so efficiently. The meticulously put together information, the prompt answers to any queries by members, the photos dug up from the immense mess that is the internet... quite a task! It is almost like a full time job! I thank you for spending your valuable time informing the world about my work. And I thank all members for their most valuable comments on the page. Rest assured I go through each and every one of them if and when possible.They are very precious to me. I can never aptly describe the joy that it gives me to go through all that you have to say, good or bad.
I cannot deny that Star Jalsha has given me a lot of firsts. The latest first is an award. The Star Jalsha Parivaar Award for “Shobcheye Priyo Kholnayok”. Though this is more of an in-house award, it does not cease to be my first. It will always be very special to me. I was a bundle of nerves as I went up on stage to accept the award. I don’t even remember what I said! I’ll have to try and catch the telecast to know exactly what happened. Here goes a photo of the award.
Adwitiya... Well there is so much I want to say but words fail me at this moment of emotional upheaval. It is indeed the end of an era for me. I have been a part of this unit since May, 2010, that is, since Gaaner Oparey began. Almost 2 years. It’s as if I’m graduating from college! Hahaha... The time spent with this unit will remain special to me for as long as I live. When Gaaner Oparey ended we were sad but then again there was Adwitiya coming up. With the same unit. But this time there is nothing in store for the moment. It is a terrible feeling to see what had become a family, separate and go their different ways. Adwitiya will be very special to me for having had a chance to play such a complex, unpredictable, devilish man like Robi Kiran Chowdhury. Like I have said before, it will be a character very close to my heart forever. I have enjoyed each moment of being this man. 24th February 2012 was our last day of shoot. The last episode looks to be a very emotional one. Let us hope it will stir your hearts as it has ours while we have shot it.
Now for some information!
I have noticed that your continued support has resulted in a great number of votes for me at the International Bengali Film Awards website. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have a small piece of news regarding this event. I have just received a letter from IBFA stating that due to unforeseen circumstances, the event has been postponed from March 2012 to May 2012.
Laptop is due for release in April. Let’s hope the pre-release publicity starts soon. I’m sure you’ll have access to any new information regarding the release of the film courtesy the able administration of the administrators of TGCF!
The second schedule of Ashbo Arek Din will fall during the first week of April. I am looking forward to spending some quality time with another unit that is very close to my heart.
Thank you all once again for everything! I leave you with a photo from the first look test that we did for Adwitiya! Hahaha... Please excuse the quality. The original photo was clicked by ace photographer Sanat Ghosh. I clicked it from his computer. Enjoy!
