The film will also star Ambarish Bhattacharya and young actor Purab Seal Acharya, singer Srikanta Acharya’s son
Since her critically acclaimed performance as Padma in Bishorjon and its sequel Bijoya, Bangladeshi actor Jaya Ahsan will now star in another Kaushik Ganguly film, Ardhangini. Jaya will be seen alongside popular Tollywood actor Churni Ganguly.
The film will also star Ambarish Bhattacharya and young actor Purab Seal Acharya, singer Srikanta Acharya’s son.
A source close to the development told the Times of India: "The film is set to roll from October 23, though there has not been any script narration yet. Also, the rest of the cast is not yet locked."
No details about the film’s storyline have been revealed yet as the team is closely guarding its screenplay. But sources have confirmed that Ardhangini is about “two powerful women, who are thrown together by circumstances.”
The source also said: "It's not known which actor will essay the role of the husband or if Kaushik himself will appear in a cameo. But in this film about women, the male characters are only expected to lend support."
Jaya, currently in Bangladesh, will go to Kolkata just before the shoot begins.
The actor recently wrapped up Atanu Ghosh's Robibar, and legendary West Bengal actor Prasenjit is her co-star in this film.
She will need to complete the patch shoot of Soukarya Ghosal's Bhoot Pori before she starts the shoot for Ardhangini.
Earlier this year, the actor also starred in Bini Sutoy starring alongside Ritwick Chakraborty.
