Kolkata: Essaying the role of a boom-wielding scoop chaser in a debuntant director's film, 'Goynar Baksho' actor Srabanti Chatterjee says her new character is a cross between her own imagination and first hand experience of interacting with many journalists.
"I have done the role in my way. I do comfort a distressed girl. A woman can share the agonies of another with more sensibility," Srabonti said on the sets of the film 'Sesh Sangbad' here.
"Having seen several women journalists from channels I have observed and tried to pick up their traits, conversation and this will help me etch out the role," the upcoming Kathmundu actor said.
The vivacious actress, however, lets out she will always wish to pose before camera and not the other way round.
"I had wished to be an actor from a very young age. I reveled in giving expressions before the camera and not the other way round. I guess I couldn't have become anything but an actor," she said.
Praised by the director of 'Sesh Sangbad' for not showing any air during the shoot, Srabonti said, "My job is to portray what the captain of the shop wants. His wish should always get precedence."
"Srabonti had acted the scenes before me as we were discussing the film which is unlike a heroine when we were discussing the scenes at a coffeeshop. And during one shooting schedule she had no qualms in giving five takes for a single shot one day as it went on and on," the young director said.
"As I said I am more an actor than a star. I look at myself that way. I had probably picked up this value from Prosenjit Chatterjee who was my co-actor when I did a film with him in 1997 as an eight-year old. He had given me so much space despite age difference in my debut on big screen. You get as much respect as you give others," Srabonti said.
