Saswata Chatterjee to act in Indo-Danish film

Rakasree Basu has always been a fan of Saswata Chatterjee. Be it as Tutti Futti in Jagga Jasoos, or Bob Biswas in Shobor, Chatterjee has always been Basu’s favourite actor. So no wonder when this Mumbai based producer, decided to make a children’s movie, instead of taking a leading actor from Bollywood, she decided to return to Kolkata, to her roots. Basu spent her formative years in Kolkata before shifting base to Mumbai. But she believes in a strong Bengali connect and hence her earlier project for a Swedish TV show was with another Tollywood actor Joy Sengupta.

Basu believes there are several talents in Tollywood’s backyard and hence she tries to add a touch of Bengal to all her projects. The Indo-Danish international project is titled Iqbal and the Indian Jewel. The earlier Iqbal films had a huge audience in Denmark and are very popular. Saswata’s role has a lot of action. Well-known cinematographer Martin Top Jacobsen has been roped in and the film is based on a novel by Manu Sareen, a former parliamentarian of Denmark.
