Soham Chakraborty, Tanusree Chakraborty and Paayel Sarkar will play the lead in Raja Chanda’s next titled ‘Harano Prapti’. The film speaks for the rape victims and raises awareness against the rapists who often escape punishment.
“We often go through news of rapes in newspapers. I am only trying to protest against the heinous act through the cinematic lens,” said Raja when speaking about the film.
The story is original and penned by Padmanabha Dasgupta. While Tanushree Chakraborty plays a victim Maya, Soham will be seen as her rescuer Mainak. Paayel, meanwhile, plays Mainak’s girlfriend Namrata.
“Not only comedy films, I have also done films based on serious issues with Raja Chanda earlier. The story here is brilliant. It shows how criminals sometimes find the escape route." said Soham who is set to work with Raja Chanda for the sixth time.
On the other hand, this the first time Tanusree is sharing the screen with Soham. To prepare for her character she spoke to many rape victims and watched documentaries. “I believe society itself is the biggest inspiration for us,” says the popular actress.
The cast of ‘Harano Prapti’ also has popular actors including Arindam Ganguly, Sourav Das and Madhumita Chakraborty in pivotal roles. (Etimes)
