While some actors hit the right chords with their acting prowess on screen, only a few manage to engage the audience with much ease by just their presence. With more than two decades worth of incredibly powerful performances at his bay, Atul Kulkarni is one such actor who has constantly proven that he's a force to reckon with. To hold ground opposite this veteran must surely be intimidating. As we gear up for Amazon Prime Video's upcoming new musical drama Bandish Bandits, the debutant lead actor Ritwik Bhowmik opens up about starring alongside many industry legends, who were part of the cast.
On working with the versatile Atul Kulkarni, Ritwik quipped, “I am a huge admirer of Atul sir's work. I was very excited to shoot with him but my character demanded me to be blunt with his character on the show. It was very difficult for me because I did not want to be rude to Atul sir. So, everytime the camera rolled, I would have my poker face on. The moment Anand Sir would call it a cut, I would start trembling. I guess it happened because I was working with him for the first time and it was absolutely dreamy.”
With not just Atul Kulkarni but also Naseeruddin Shah, Sheeba Chadda, Rajesh Taillang among others, this experience must have undoubtedly been an exciting and a learning one for the budding actor.
Debuting alongside Shreya Chaudhary, Bandish Bandits is India’s first-ever musical original series. All set to release on August 4, the series is directed by Anand Tiwari and written by Amritpal Singh Bindra.
