RBN Web Desk: Bengali superstar Jeet has said that he is planning to make a Hindi film from Kolkata. Speaking to the media recently, the actor said, there’s no dearth of talent in Bengal. Many directors, artistes and technicians from the Bengali film industry are doing commendable work in Mumbai. A Hindi film for the pan-India audience, is possible from here itself, he added.
On allegations of working only in remakes, Jeet said, no other film industry in the world is bothered about remakes. Japan, Spain, Hollywood, and not even Mumbai don’t care whether a film is a remake or an ‘original’. It’s only in Bengal that people shout against remakes, and cry hoarse about it, he added.
According to Jeet, he is only bothered about good and bad films. The story of a film can come from anywhere. There’s nothing mandatory that the plot has to be written in Bengal. What’s the harm in narrating a good story that has been written in some other state, and can be retold in Bengali, the actor questioned.
Jeet said that he is always open to work with new talent. He himself has worked with many new directors like Baba Yadav, Riingo Banerjee, Shiboprosad Mukherjee, and others at the beginning of their career, the actor recalled.
Jeet has worked in four films of Baba Yadav, beginning with Boss: Born To Rule (2013). He worked with Shiboprosad in Hello Memsaheb (2011) and with Riingo in his debut film Kranti (2006).
