RBN Web Desk: Jete Nahi Dibo, the docu-feature on Bengal matinee idol Uttam Kumar, is all set to release on 3 September. The film is directed by Prabir Roy and chronicles the actor’s contribution to the Bengali film industry, his personal attachment with technicians, and his versatile acting capability.
Popular film and television actor Sujan Mukherjee plays Uttam Kumar in the docu-feature. Prabir said, initially he had thought of many other actors to play the role, but found Sujan’s resemblance closest to the actor. The rest of the cast includes Dulal Lahiri, Mallika Sinha Roy, Piu Sengupta, Sudip Sarkar, Ujjaini Banerjee and others.
According to Prabir, the documentary not only narrates Uttam’s struggle to attain stardom, but will also cover the scandals that dogged the actor during his lifetime.
The release date of the docu-feature, incidentally, is the 92nd birth anniversary of the legendary actor.
