Now, it is time for role reversal Riddhi Sen and his father Kaushik Sen. The actor will very soon don the hat of a director and will be directing his first film ‘Cold Fire’. Riddhi Sen has confirmed the same on his official Instagram handle and even penned down a long message. It will be a short film which will be based on Nabarun Bhattacharya’s story.
Riddhi Sen wrote, “Something I have been planning since 2015, as Scorsese says , ‘this is a story which kept on disturbing me , burning inside me , creating an inexplicable ‘need’ to share it with people ‘ . I didn’t know the medium until 2015, then one sudden morning I realised this deep connection with this instrument called camera , through which , one can meddle with ‘time’ . I don’t know what will happen , but I definitely know it for a fact , that I’m going to ‘learn’ the craft while making it , this is my first year of film school , thank you Nabarun Bhattacharya, for planting this madness inside me with Coldfire.”
The post further read, “Without few people I couldn’t have dared attempting to make this film. My parents , who instilled the seeds of telling a story inside me . Samiran Das , who told me to go ahead with this project when I was extremely unsure of myself , his confidence with this project amazes me every time , thank you Samiran Da (Kaleidoscope) for producing this . Aniruddha Dasgupta, I owe a huge deal to you , the first writing experience is immensely special , which simply couldn’t have happened without you. Tiyash Sen , I was hell bent on the fact , if you’d said a no , I probably wouldn’t have made this film . Riddhie Basak, we’ll gradually deliver ‘coldfire’ and ‘thank you’s’ very soon 😉 Soukarya Ghosal thank you for always encouraging me to ‘see’ the flow of ‘time’ in this unending space called ‘cinema’. Thank you Atanu Ghosh for making me realise the difference between story and plot in cinema , without which the script wouldn’t have happened. Thank you Tathagata Bhattacharya for giving me the confidence to go ahead with project To Rwitobroto Mukherjee ,Surangana Bandyopadhyay,Rajarshi Nagand Dhee Majumder. Without you people , the ‘odd ventures’ won’t be possible , ever . Thank you for putting up with the unending drafts.”
Meanwhile, Riddhi Sen will be next seen in Bismillah which will be directed by Indraadip Dasgupta. Subhashree Ganguly will be featured opposite Riddhi Sen in the film.
