Singer Babul Supriyo has decided to make his acting debut in a Bengali film. He will be playing the lead role in Chandrer Bari. The film will be directed by acclaimed Bengali filmmaker Tarun Mazumdar.
Babul seems to be following the footsteps of his contemporaries like Himesh Reshammiya, Sonu Nigam, Palaash Sen - popular singers who also made an advent into acting. Reportedly, he was offered the role in Chandrer Bari when he went to record a song for Mazumdar in Kolkata. He will be seen opposite Rituparna Sengupta - the leading lady of Main, Meri Patni Aur Woh fame and top Bengali actress. Babul, who claims to have no formal training in acting, will be trying his hand at the same with Mazumdar's help. It is learned that he will also feature in his own music videos henceforth, and will attempt a Bollywood flick if a good offer comes his way.
Chandrer Bali will go on floors by the 22nd of April this year.
