All eyes are set on the on-screen pair of Sabyasachi Mishra and Archita Sahu, who are to romance each other in their upcoming film Sushant Mani directed Mun Eka Tumara, to be released during Raja.
Susant, who had earlier edited several of Sabyasachi’s films, is thrilled about the project. He claimed that the film’s uniqueness lies in its storyline. He also said that the songs composed by music director Bikas Das are surely icing on the cake. “We want to make this film a complete entertainment package with good acting, strong storyline and melodious music,” Susant said.
“We created the music in a jungle while we were in Bhawanipatna. Only one item song is yet to be composed and we’ll try to make it a special one,” he added.
Mani said the story revolved around a marriage, where Archita plays the bride. “It’s a family film. Raja festival is a time for merry making for the Odias. Such quality movies will surely create new audience base for Odia films,” said the film editor-turned-director.
This will be Sabyasachi and Archita’s seventh film together. Sabyasachi, who was last seen in Hara Pattnaik’s Om Sai Ram, is quite upbeat about the film and claimed that it would be on one of the best projects of his life.
“I have lost 12kg to do justice to my character. Moreover, I play a mute character, therefore, watched many Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton films to get the right expression for the character,” the actor said. Talking about his leading lady, he said: “There is a new-found confidence in Archita owing to her successful stint in a popular beauty pageant.”
The film has a huge star cast, including veterans such as Mihir Das, Bijay Mohanty, Mahasweta Ray, Harihara Mohapatra, Usashi Mishra and youngsters such as Ragini, Debasish Patra, Lovely and Prithviraj, among others. Bikash Das has composed the music and Abhiram Mishra will look after the cinematography.
The opening sequences of the film are presently being shot in an extravagant set near the Nandankanan zoo.
