His popularity shot through the roof after he played Aranya Singha Ray in the teleserial Bojhena Shey Bojhena. And this Durga Puja, Yash Dasgupta is all set to make his big-screen debut in Birsa Dasgupta’s Gangster. CT caught up with the actor for a candid chat about the film, his fans, his fiancee and lots more. Excerpts:
Birsa Dasgupta’s Gangster is your debut film and it’s having a Puja release. How do you feel about it?
I just can’t thank God enough for this! This Puja is certainly going to be the most special one in my life. Of course, I may have more Puja releases in future if I’m accepted by the audience, but Gangster will always remain close to my heart.
The buzz is that you are posing a big threat to the other heroes in the industry?
(Laughs) Threat? To whom? I’m a newcomer, who’s here to make a place for himself. I don’t think I’m a threat. There are so many heroes in the Hindi film industry…they are all famous and coexist peacefully. Why can’t it be the same here?
