Siddhant to call the shots soon

The yester year chocolate boy of ollywood now groomed into a seasoned actor is soon going to perform the most commanding job in the Odia filmdom. Any guess! Well, the ‘sradhanjali’ debutant Siddant Mahapatra after registering a remarkable onscreen presence is now going to call the shots from behind the silver screen.

After more than hundred films to his credit and about fifteen years in the industry this crowd puller is ready with his first directorial venture ‘Kahar Kete Dum’. According his recent interview to a news website he had been planning for the project since last seven years and started working on the script last year. Now the script is ready and the hunt for the cast and crew is to be taken up very soon. Though the details about this movie are yet to be revealed still it is a ‘film with a social message’, little different from the routine action flicks of present Ollywood genre. Siddhant will be playing the lead role while a new face; most probably a non-Odia actress will fill the slot for heroine.

It is not new for Ollywood to witness actors turning directors. The industry has seen many masters of this art who have left laudable impression both on and off screen. The stalwarts on this front are Prashant Nanda, Hara Patanaik, Sarat Pujari, Samuel Sahoo (Babi da) and Gaur Prasad Ghosh. Actors like Rai Mohan, Ashru Mochan, Ajit Das, Bijoy Mohanty are also popular names for directorial job in the theatre world.

Siddhant has remained a box office trump card for the producers and hopefully his own venture would also prove to be a box office top grosser.

Let us hope the Odia audience gets a good entertainer from this one time teen sensation.
