Finally, Prague is getting its due: Roy
Actor Chandan Roy Sanyal (above) has played the lead role only in one film so far, Prague (2013), which he calls one of the best films of his career. Unfortunately, the film didn’t do well at the box-office when it was initially released, but Roy is happy that it’s finally gaining momentum, thanks to the online mediums.
“Prague is one of those films that is really close to my heart. But not many people got to watch it, as it didn’t get to release at many theatres. I invested so much energy, experience and time in that movie, but at the end, I got nothing,” he sighs.
However, things got better for Roy and the film is slowly getting its due, as it’s available for viewing on online platforms. “I can see that more and more people are now getting to watch the film. Many have appreciated my performance. In fact, those who have liked the film, are also recommending it. So this word of mouth promotion is really helpful. The film, I feel is gaining momentum with time. I was recently shooting in Delhi for a commercial, and a guy came up to me and said that he watched the film (on YouTube) and completely enjoyed it,” adds Roy.
