Actor-director Parambrata Chatterjee made the announcement of a biopic on legendary actor Soumitra Chatterjee on the legendary actor’s 85th birthday.

Parambrata told reporters that acclaimed actor Jisshu Sengupta will essay the role of young Soumitra Chatterjee, while the Ghare Baire actor will himself portray the actor in the later phase of the character’s life.

The script of the film will be written by Padmanabha Dasgupta and will attempt to cover the 60-year-old career of the actor, which includes more than 300 films.

"It is an honour that a towering personality like Soumitra Chatterjee has given consent for a biopic. He is an institution of acting for every show biz performer," Parambrata, who had earlier directed Jiyo Kaka and Hawa Bodol, said with the veteran actor by his side.
