Kaushik Ganguly's 'Khad' unmasks the true self: Saheb

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Terming his role in upcoming 'Khaad' by national award winner Kaushik Ganguly as one of the most intense ones, the 'Topse' in Sandip Ray's Feluda Saheb Bhattacharya says in this psycho-emotional drama the dark instincts of human self comes to the fore during a mishap.

"Me and Mimi (of 'Bojhena Se Bojhena' and 'Proloy' fame) are part of the other couples in 'Khad' who are all trapped when a trip turns into a nightmare and the repressed passion, instinct, wishes pour out.It shows we are all donning different masks with different people and that the mask becomes the true face at one time," Saheb told PTI.

"Khad can be described as an array of human emotions - a spread of chocolates dark, hazelnut, brownie everything and all one has to do is pick up the right flavoured one," Saheb said.

He said 'Khad' unravels some of the past episodes confronting human mind in one night but it is not exactly in the league of Sandip's Nishijapon where too the characters lose their veneer of pretentiousness once confronted with starvation in a landslide jolted lodge in the hills."

Saheb, who had turned up in a metrosexual look in Manoj Michigan's Damadol with Samadarshi, said he loved bright, quirky colors in 'Fast Track' shades like neon and gold cool."


'Daker Saaj' actor said from Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr to Anil Kapoor, Neil Nitin Mukhesh he liked the 'Sunglass Status' of male actors 'Hot.'

These days it is more like how you carry yourself, and 'Fast Track' adroitly merges both contemporay and retro patterns, he said.

"It is like wearing regular gentswear and then contrasting that with a sling bag as done by our showbiz personalities like Mainak Bhowmik and Rudraneil Ghosh," he said.

"We have introduced a whole new range of shades for the Gen Y who love to be trendy," A Titan Eyeplus spokesman said.
