RITUPARNA SENGUPTA and PRIYADARSHAN
Nahin bhai, Priyadarshan isn't Bengali nor does he have any roots in the Bong land. It's just that he gets along famously with Bong beauty Rituparna Sengupta (the lead of his forthcoming BAM BAM BHOLE).
And it's not just work or even films that they discuss. Priyan is quite taken in by Bengali art and literature and being from West Bengal, Rituparna used to avidly discuss Bengali literature and films with Priyan while shooting the film. And one of the hot topics with them was Satyajit Ray's films and Rabindranath Tagore's novels, both being Priyan's favourites.
Incidentally, Priyan's KANJIVARAM and Rituparna's CHATURANGO are both being shown in the Goa Film Fest... Hmm...just in case we see a Bengali film or at least the subject coming from Priyan, we'll know who might be responsible for it!
