Entertainment Report : Directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Pradip Bhattacharya, Rajlokshi O Srikanto is a rebellious modern day take on the Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyayâ€™s classic literary work, and stars Bangladeshi actress Jyotika Jyoti as Rajlokshi or Pyaribai, opposite Ritwick Chakraborty, who plays Srikanto. This film marks Jyotikaâ€™s debut in Tollywood but the experienced Bangladeshi actress doesnâ€™t feel any pressure ahead of the release. The film is no doubt an adventurous take on a literary classic. We asked the popular Bangladeshi actress how challenging it was shooting for the film. Jyotika says she adapted the story in her own way while preparing for Rajlokshiâ€™s character. â€œYes, the novel is so widely read and almost everyoneâ€™s read it. Weirdly enough, I wanted to see the old screen adaptations of the novel, but was asked not to. I had read the novel many years ago, but I was asked not to re-read it for the film. I was asked to connect to this story and adapt it in my own way. To me, this Rajlokshi is more humane, and bolder. And sheâ€™s a struggler. Our script has a huge social relevance and the script is not just a one-dimensional love story, it is a reflection on the society as well,â€ Jyotika Jyoti explained. Rajlokshi O Srikanto will release on September 20.
