Mumbai, October 13 (IANS) Actor Gurmeet Choudhary says his upcoming short film ‘Shubho Bijoya’ is a dream come true as he always wanted to marry his wife Debina Bonnerjee in a Bengali-style ceremony .
Gurmeet and Debina had worked together in the TV show ‘Ramayan’ as Ram and Sita. The real couple reunites for the short film ‘Shubho Bijoya’.
Gurmeet talked about the short film being as real and authentic as possible, on a personal and professional level. He said: “As you all know, we did not get married in a lavish way, it was a low-key wedding, but I had always had this dream that I was going to get married in a Bengali-style ceremony and in this film, we are in fact Got married. Whatever you want to see in this short film, it is quite authentic ”
He said, “Our director had set up the camera and told us the rituals, and we started doing our thing, so no matter what moments you may see on screen, they are quite natural and real. When I went through the scene, especially when I put ‘Sindoor’ on Debina’s forehead, it had no sense of resumption, it was genuine. As everyone knows, I am not a Bengali, and playing such a character was an experience in itself. ”
The romantic short film is directed by director Ram Kamal Mukherjee. It’s a love story that revolves around a fashion photographer and a supermodel. The film is produced by Aritra Das, Gaurav Daga and Sarbani Mukherjee.
Debina also shared that the film is a modern city story and high on emotional quotient. She said: “The characters are Bengali, but the film is in Hindi and it is a very urban film. The film takes place in Mumbai and it is truly urban and its ultra-modern history, it is something we all are; the film is about working out of troubled times and rebuilding our world and trying to get the best out of it. ”
“After making the film, I had seen it 4-5 times, and I cried every time. I thought Gurmeet would think I’m obsessed with it because I cried when I saw myself acting. Watching the level of the movie is such that one can actually start crying. It is a very simple story, which is very well woven and well told, ”added Debina.
‘Shubho Bijoya’ premieres on the promising day of Bijoya Dasami on October 15 on the OTT platform BiiggBang.
