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.
