Supratik Sengupta Kolkata, Apr 6 (PTI) Coming back to Bengali movies after 15 years, character actor Raghubir Yadav says he wants his latest film, based on a real life story, dubbed in Hindi and shown all over the country. Yadav said his "Atta Aater Bongaon Local" (The Bongaon Local train of 8.08 pm) is so realistic in presenting the cold-blooded murder of a teenaged boy trying to save the honour of his sister that he wants it to be seen by an all-India audience. "I would like to talk to the makers and producers of the film about its possible country-wide release, if not immediately, but sometime later," he told PTI. The actor returned to Bengali cinema 15 years after his role of a simpleton in "Damu" (1996), under the direction of young filmmaker Debaditya. Talking about his role in the "Atta Aater Bongaon Local", he said he depicted a very strong character of a ickshaw-puller and admitted he felt very "charged up" while essaying it. "Though it may sound like a cliche, I always feel charged up when I get into the skin of such a role, I try to sense his hardship and become himself", Yadav of "Salaam Bombay" fame said. He said he had tried to perfect the art of paddling a rickshaw for days. Yadav, who had seen several films of Ritwik Ghatak and Satyajit Ray including Ray's "Pather Panchali", "Jalsaghar" and "Apur Sansar", said he was always open to work with new directors including those from Bengal if the script and character appeared interesting. "I have heard names like Srijit (Mukherjee). I am a great follower of Rituparno Ghosh, or even 'dada' Buddhadev Dasgupta, all synonymous with Bengal's rich heritage. I would like to work with them," Yadav said about Bengali directors. MORE
