Actor Chandan Roy Sanyal is on a roll. The actor who rose to fame with filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj’s Kaminey (2009), has been making information for his performances in net sequence together with Parchhayee (2019), Bhram (2019) and the latest Aashram.
Thrilled with the type of roles he has been getting on OTT, Sanyal says, “My OTT experience started last year and has been quite gratifying. As a medium, I really enjoy doing films but I never got good opportunities to soar or showcase my acting abilities in films as I hardly had any scope in films. Often, I had few scenes and few minutes on screen. I was jostling for space to perform. Usually, people ask me ‘What went wrong after Kaminey?’ I reply, nothing went wrong. I was doing the best I could in the small roles I got. But, OTT has changed things for me.”

He is grateful for the platforms and reveals which have given him these alternatives. He admits that whereas his profession in movies was regular, he wished extra. “Films came and went, I survived and that too despite all odds. Now, my characters are spread out over nine hours in a web series and I have the space to create my own graph, add nuances to the character, which was missing for me in films. OTT has given a boost to my career,” shares the actor who needs to do a romantic position on display.
The actor has shot for an anthology helmed by National Award-winning filmmakers. His movie is directed by director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury. He shares he has at all times loved working with Chowdhury through the years. “I have know Aniruddha before he directed the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Pink (2016). I did a Bengali film called Aparajita Tumi, which was produced by (filmmaker) Shoojit Sircar. Even without working together, we spent great time eating and discussing films. So when this opportunity arose, I accepted it. I will always love to work with him over and over again,” says Sanyal.
