Kolkata: For the first time in his career, Anirban Bhattacharya is all set to be seen as a police officer in director Srijit Mukherji’s upcoming film Vinci Da. He will play a character called Inspector Poddar.
Speaking to the media recently, Anirban said, “I had always wanted to play a police officer on screen and was wondering if any director would cast me in such a role. Srijit’s offer came almost as a coincidence.”
According to Srijit, “Vinci Da is a thriller and is about a makeup artiste and a serial killer. It has two of my favourite actors Ritwick Chakraborty and Rudranil Ghosh. That aside, Sohini Sarkar plays a major role in the film.”
Vinci Da will be Srijit’s third thriller after Baishe Srabon (2011) and Chotushkone (2014).
The film will release next year.
