Bandish Bandits actor Ritwik Bhowmik says it was very difficult for him to be rude to actor Atul Kulkarni while filming a scene.
Bhowmik got a chance to work with Atul in the upcoming series “Bandish Bandits”, and a sequence demanded that the young actor be “blunt” in attitude towards the senior artiste.
“I am a huge admirer of Atul sir’s work. I was very excited to shoot with him but my character demanded me to be blunt with his character on the show. It was very difficult for me because I did not want to be rude to Atul sir,” Ritwik Bhowmik said.
He added, “So, every time the camera rolled, I would put on my poker face. The moment (director) Anand (Tiwari) sir would call it a cut, I would start trembling! I guess it happened because I was working with him for the first time and it was absolutely dreamy.”
Bandish Bandits is set in Jodhpur and tells the story of Radhey and Tamanna, two young musicians hailing from contrasting backgrounds. Radhe (Ritwik Bhowmik) is a singing prodigy determined to follow in the classical footsteps of his grandfather (Naseeruddin Shah). Tamanna (Shreya Chaudhry) is a rising pop sensation desperate to become India’s first international pop star.
The 10-part Amazon Prime Video series also features Naseeruddin Shah, Sheeba Chaddha, Kunal Roy Kapur and Rajesh Tailang. It is created and produced by Amritpal Singh Bindra and directed by Anand Tiwari. The show will go live on August 4.
