Tolly actor Ritwick Chakraborty is all set to deal with baldness in his next film, Teko
Male baldness as a subject is currently not only raging in Bollywood but seems to have caught the fancy of Tolly filmmakers as well. While Hindi films like Bala (starring Ayushman Khurrana) and Ujda Chaman are slated for November release, Bengali film industry too is having its own take on the subject with a film called Teko (Bald) by Abhimanyu Mukherjee starring the dynamic actor Ritwick Chakraborty.
This film produced by Surinder Films is about a man called Alokesh, a funny government employee, who is very proud of his mop of hair and takes good care of it. His fiancee Mina too takes good care of her hair. But their otherwise happy life goes for a toss when Alokesh starts losing his hair after using a dubious haircare oil. Mina rejects him and he becomes the object of ridicule wherever he goes. The story builds on how he deals with this situation. The poster of the movie that released today has a comical take on hair loss related problems and seems to have all the ingredients of a comedy film.
Ritwick, who delivered a heart-rending performance in National Award-winning movie Nagarkirtan earlier this year, was also seen in Srijit Mukherji's Vinci Da, Kaushik Ganguly's Jyestho Putra, Churni Ganguly's Tarikh, Sudeshna Roy Abhijit Guha- directed Samsara, Pratim D Gupta's Shanitlal O Projapoti Rohoshyo, Pradipta Bhattacharya's Rajlokkhi O Shrikanto. His latest movie, filmmaker Raj Chakraborty's Parineeta opposite popular actor Shubhasree Ganguly is still running successfully in theatres.
In Teko, that's slated for a November 22 release, he is starring opposite another popular Tolly actor Srabanti Chatterjee, who was last seen in Googly and Bhootchakra Pvt Ltd this year.
Currently, Ritwick, who is probably one of the most talented and busiest actors right now in Tollywood, completed shooting for Soukarya Ghosal's Bhootpori, where he plays a thief and National Award-winning filmmaker Atanu Ghosh's Bini Sutoy opposite veteran actor Jaya Ahsan. Besides, his film Buro Sadhu is also slated for release this November.
