en Bollywood News Rakhee Gulzar shoots for Bengali movie Amar Boss; enjoys ‘puchka’ on the busy streets of Kolkata, watch

Amar Boss also features Shiboprosad and Srabanti Chatterjee.

Yesteryear star Rakhee Gulzar is making a comeback in Bengali films after a hiatus. Her last theatrical release in Bengal was Rituparno Ghosh’s Shubho Mahurat (2003) even though she was seen in Gautam Halder’s Nirban, which did rounds of several film festivals in 2019 as it didn't have a theatrical release. It, thus, clocks two decades of seeing Rakhee on the big screen in a Bengali film. Rakhee Gulzar will portray the protagonist in Amar Boss, directed by Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee. The shooting commenced on January 5, 2024.

On Wednesday, January 17, Rakhee was shooting at the Victoria Memorial Square in Kolkata. She was shooting a scene, capturing the essence of Kolkata through a seemingly simple act – relishing puchka (pani puri). Hoards of people had gathered to catch a glimpse of Rakhee Gulzar who returned to cinema after many years. Dressed in all white with light blue blouse, she was immersed in her shoot.

Reflecting on her quiet life in Panvel, in Navi Mumbai, during KIFF (2019), Rakhee shared her experiences of visiting Kolkata anonymously and exploring the local markets. She said, “I used to work in cinema when it was very different. But I have no regrets about stopping, about not working with directors I have not worked with. My favourite director is Tapan Sinha, I love the way he made films for everyone. As an actress, I have had the same beliefs.”

Nandita Roy had previously expressed her excitement about working with Rakhee, stating, “I have great regards for Rakhee di and wanted to work with her for long. Amar Boss was conceived keeping her in mind. We are delighted about getting this opportunity to work with her.”

Amar Boss also features Shiboprosad and Srabanti Chatterjee.
