Namashi Chakraborty, born into a film family, discusses how lucky she feels to live in today’s star-struck world
Mumbai, Namashi Chakraborty, the son of Mithun Chakraborty and Yogeeta Bali, is a newcomer to the film industry who says he plans to forge his own way despite the fact that he was born into a privileged position. Namashi thinks it’s simple for a star kid to receive a launch in a country where film stars are idolised, but that only talent can determine a person’s destiny.
Once people find out that your parents are famous, you will be treated as a celebrity in your own right. It’s not for nothing that we live in such a celebrity-obsessed culture. No tension has been exerted on me. If I behave responsibly, I will earn my own recognition.You won’t often hear the phrase “Ranbir Kapoor is the son of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor” or “Alia Bhatt is Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter,” as these days their talents speak for themselves. There was nobody to support my dad. Ultimately, “if you are talented, you will make it no matter what,” the newcomer told PTI.
Rajkumar Santoshi’s “Bad Boy” is Namashi’s first film as a lead actor. On Friday, the film was out, with newbie Amrin Qureshi joining in the cast.
The actor, now 30, said his father had warned him about the “bumpy” journey in Hollywood.
I’ve always been a filmy child, so he probably guessed that I wanted to be an actor before I did. You look like a guy who is prepared for a lot of things, but Mumbai city can break you down in seconds, so be prepared for the worst and always prepare yourself for the best, he warned me before I set out on my journey. He continued, “It’s going to be a rough ride.”
Namashi finally landed “Bad Boy” in 2019 after numerous attempts and rejections.
“I tried out for my first movie, but it was never produced. I finally got ‘Bad Boy’ after years of trying. Having a film and working on a set as a hero are both remarkable accomplishments. Some may say, “He’s a star kid who’s trying to act humble,” but the opportunity to work with acclaimed director Rajkumar Santoshi is too good to pass up. It’s like a fairytale come true. As he put it, “it was surreal.”
Amrin, now 24, spent years in supporting roles before landing her first lead in “Bad Boy,” much like Namashi did before she broke through.
“I had a project before ‘Bad Boy,’ but it fell through. I stepped away for a year to recharge, take some classes, and sharpen my abilities. As far as first albums go, ‘Bad Boy’ is as good as it gets for me. She bragged, “I am the lead actress, and I am proud of that fact.”
Both actors are interested in appearing in films with unique roles in the future.
Namashi has stated his desire to collaborate with modern directors who are “bringing a new narrative in the movies.”
I’d like to be taken more seriously by others. Amrin continued, “The next movie I pick will be more acting oriented, where my character is strong.
The “Bad Boy” producers at Inbox Pictures are brothers Anjum and Sajid Qureshi.
