Debutant director Shantanu Bagchi has booked his phenomenal entry in the director’s hat with his spy thriller ‘Mission Majnu’ starring Sidharth Malhotra and Rashmika Mandanna. Stepping into the world of storytelling as an ad filmmaker, Shantanu truly took a giant leap in the director’s shoes with a film based on a true event with an amazing star cast, Sidharth Malhotra and Rashmika Mandanna. While the film is receiving great responses from all corners, the debutant director shares his experience of working with Sidharth and Rashmika in the film.
Sharing his experience of working with the handsome hunk Sidharth Malhotra, Shantanu said, “A great performance from an actor comes after lots of hard work but on screen, it has to look effortless and real. Sid achieved this in the movie. I have witnessed Sid’s drive to excel in Mission Majnu. We had lots of discussions, readings, and rehearsals – in short it was exciting to work with him. It is a wonderful feeling as a director when you see an actor going beyond your expectation.”
On the other hand, sharing his experience of working with the national crush Rashmika Mandanna, Shantanu said, “I always believed, as far as acting is concerned – Less is more. Rashmika is an actress who can sit on a chair, do very little, and yet move you to tears. Not an easy thing to do. It needs tremendous restraint and skill at the same time. It was an absolute joy to see her going through various workshops and bringing all her learnings to play the role of a blind girl.”
‘Mission Majnu’ has been released and has been receiving love from all areas. The directorial debut of Shantanu Bagchi has a long way to go and is arousing sentiments of patriotism throughout the nation.
