Even as the shadow of strict lockdown in containment zones loomed large, the first film shooting began at a city studio on Wednesday. Directed by Ayushman Pratyush, the film, SOS KOLKATA, features Nusrat Jahan, Mimi Chakraborty and Yash.
“We have started working with 40 members of which 35 members will be on the floor. The first shot will be of Nusrat’s in a control room where hacking and surveillance take place. Yash will enter in the second half. He has a shot with Sudip Mukherjee,” the director said.
Meanwhile, Nusrat seems to be very happy with the shooting resumption. “I have butterflies fluttering in my tummy as I prep up for my first shot,” she giggled over phone. “After months of no shooting, I finally entered the movie town studio this morning and it seems it is the beginning of a new era. All the familiar faces are clad in mask. I’m getting jitters. But I’m happy we are all back to the new normal. So many technicians have been out of work for so many days. I hope everything eventually turns out alright,” she added.
The film was supposed to go on the floors on July 6. However, due to SOP glitch, it was postponed. Yash was last seen with Mimi in Mon Jaane Na and with Nusrat in One. Shantilal Mukherjee, Ena Saha and Sabyasachi Chakraborty also play important roles in this film.
