Playback singer Angarag Papon Mahanta is making his acting debut with Assamese film Rodor Sithi, directed by Baharul Islam. Facing the camera was always his first choice and he always fascinated by the idea of playing a different person onscreen.
Papon is playing a character of a professor in this film, which shows the importance of relationships in life. “I am enjoying acting. I always liked the whole idea of acting. Right from my childhood, I was very much intrigued by the idea of portraying different characters which might be opposite to what I am in real life. Bahrul (director) made me quite comfortable with my character,” said Papon.
In Rodor Sithi he is lending his voice for three songs with singer Zubeen Garg, who is the music director of this film. Zubeen also playing an important role in this film, however they do not share any screen space in the film. “It’s sad that we haven’t worked together in a single shot. In the film, I am playing the character of Zubeen’s father. We only sang few songs together because Zubeen is also the music director of the film,” Papon said.
Papon got many opportunity to act in films before but he choose the film Rodor sithi as he found the subject of conserving the nature in the backdrop of relationships close to his heart. “I got many offers in the past. But I selected this film as my debut because I always believe in the concept of nature conservation. When you give a serious message through any source of entertainment then it is accepted well in the society,” Papon said.
The film is expected to hit theatres by early next year. the music is out on 25th December 2013
