Ghose’s “Sankhachil”, jointly produced by India and Bangladesh, was shot on both sides of the border, and is his third Indo-Bangla production.
The film, which recently won the National Award, portrays the angst of the people living near the Indo-Bangladesh border, and stars Prosenjit and Bangladeshi actress Kusum. Ghose says that he has always been inspired by Ritwik Ghatak, whose partition themed films have left a mark on him. He believes that partition always brought forth the raw wounds on the psyche of affected people on both sides of the border.
