Kolkota based actor Subrat Dutta is pretty excited about this forthcoming film, MADHOLAL KEEP WALKING. He's playing a common man in the film, which has already won a lot of international acclaim at various film festivals.
Says Subrat, "Madholal is a common man. He can be you or me. He is a very simple person who lives in Mumbai. It's a film about how a person comes out from a tragedy. It's about a person who doesn't have any financial back-up but still manages to get along with life after a tragedy."
Subrat admits that the film isn't a typical mainstream film. "Ours is not a so-called 'mainstream Bollywood film'. But Bollywood is going through a metamorphosis. There are many good films being made like BHEJA FRY, TERE BIN LADEN etc, which is great. We have put in a lot of effort in this film," he says with conviction.
Subrat also bagged the best actor award at the Cairo Film Festival. "I have played this role with a lot of responsibility. Getting the best actor award at the Cairo Film Festival was very humbling. It's good to know that people have liked our film," he says modestly.
Directed by Jai Tank, MADHOLAL KEEP WALKING is all set to release on August 15.
