Indian film to show how ‘terrorism affects tourists in Kashmir’

Kolkata: Bengali director Sanghamitra Chowdhury is planning to shoot a film in Kashmir which will show how “terrorism affects the lives of tourists visiting the region.”
Chowdhury, who previously made ‘Strings of Passion’ on male model abuse, has Aditya Pancholi in mind for an important role in the yet untitled film.
“I have already done a recee of places like Pahalgam and Srinagar. Aditya is a good actor and we have talked for once but he is yet to give his word,” she said.
“The film centres on the victimisation of a Bengali family caught in the vortex of terrorism during a visit to the place,” said Chowdhury.
The rest of the cast will be from among prominent Tollywood actors, said the director who has previously worked with Joy Sengupta in ‘Chhayamoy’ and on maoist issue in ‘Jangalmahal’.
Chowdhury has also directed a film based on the life of a woman cop in ‘Kencho Khurte Keute’.
“She was a senior police officer with Jadavpur police station who had unearthed many cases. I know her personally and there was no better choice than Makudi (Pallabi Chatterjee),” she said.
The film, having leading Tollywood actor Pallabi Chatterjee in lead, focuses on criminal-politician nexus and explores how girls get exploited.— PTI
