Not everybody knows that Srijit Mukherjee offered Jeet to play the titular role in Zulfiqar. However, the actor whose film ‘Abhimaan’ is releasing today, turned down the offer said that ”The whole idea was to come up with a film during Durga Puja. I didn’t want two films of mine releasing on the same day.”
Srijit is one of the most sought-after directors in Tollywood “Srijit and I are very much in touch. We might not chat everyday but we do keep talking. We have mutual respect for each other for our body of work,” clears Jeet. Both films are going to clash in this Puja and Zulfiqar stars some of the biggest names of the industry such as Prosenjit Chatterjee, Dev and Jisshu Sengupta.
The actor is busy promoting his upcoming puja release, Abhimaan, starring Subhashree and Sayantika. Over tea, Jeet speaks I believe in giving my services to people. It didn’t happen this time. Fine.
