Kolkata, Jan 14 (IBNS) Shifting to non-mainstream genre once again after Hemlock Society and Char, popular Bengali heroine Koel Mallick is now busy shooting for award winning director Kaushik Ganguly's new film on romance with a new spin.

 "My hunger for different kind of films, to accept challenges has gone up over the years. I had refused several offers in the past one year and waiting for the right kind of role, something more exciting, more interesting. And who will not grab a Kaushik Ganguly project?" Koel told IBNS here.

"In a Kaushik Ganguly film the chord touches your heart. His scripts have an x-factor that connects your soul. I remember we had worked in Jackpot and how I developed an instant liking for the script when I went through it for the first time. Ever since I had been yearning to work with him once more," she said.

In last 2-3 years Koel's Rangbaaz (2014), Herogiri (2015) and Besh Korechhi Prem Korechhi (2015) were hits but the 'Paaglu' girl had no release in 2016 raising speculation of her taking hiatus from the tinsel world.

The coming film, 'Chhaya O Chhobi' (images and shadows) will interestingly see Koel as a heroine but she explains "The reel and real one are poles apart."

"The character portrayed is not me in real or professional lives. But that is more challenging if you have to step in another person's shoes and be that entity before the audience," Koel said on the sidelines of launch of comic book 'Awesome Four' by P C Chandra group.   

Kaushik, who has just completed shooting for Bisorjon themed on border angst, said 'Chhaya o Chhobi' is not a typical love story, a tale of love between two selves, but explores other layers which we feel but cannot typically define."

Abir Chatterjee, also having been cast in Kaushik's Bisarjon, and Ritwik Chakraborty were some other important characters in the film, Kaushik said expressing his wish to work with Prosenjit Chatterjee, Rituparna Sengupta in his future works.

"While audience will see contrasting and hitherto unseen sides of Abir, as an actor in Bisarjon and Chhaya O Chhobi, Koel's character had been written keeping her traits, manners in mind and as an actor with great potetial. Koel is serious and intelligent as an actor," Kaushik said.

The film, produced by Surinder Films, will also cast known face in Bollywood Barun Chanda and critically acclaimed actor-director Churni Ganguly.
