Dev will play freedom fighter Bagha Jatin in his next

kolkata: Dev previously wowed audiences with his powerful performance as Nagendra Prasad Sarbadhikari, the father of Indian football in Dhrubo Banerjee’s periodical film ‘Golondaaj’.

In November, actor-turned-politician Dev will start filming for ‘BaghaJatin’, a Bengali film about the revolutionary freedom fighter. 8/12 BinayBadal Dinesh’, ‘BaghaJatin’ will see Dev in the title role. Born as Jatindranath Mukhopadhyay, he was called ‘BaghaJatin’ after killing a tiger.

On the occasion of India’s 75th Independence Day, the actor and TMC MP Dev took to his social media account to reveal the first preview of the film. Dev, who is also the producer of the historical drama, wrote, “On the auspicious day of celebrating 75 years of Independence, our humble tribute to the legendary freedom fighter “Baghajatin”. Introducing the official poster of our next #Baghajatin movie.” Of course, the movie will have the iconic fight between BaghaJatin and the Tiger. In fact, the director will also incorporate revolutionary freedom fighters like Rashbehari Bose, Aurobindo Ghosh, and Barin Ghosh.

Although Dev needs prosthetics to step into BaghaJatin’s shoes, the director thinks he looks a lot like JatindranathMukhopadhyay, so major prosthetics won’t be necessary.

This has been a remarkable year for Dev so far. His recent production “Kishmish” with RukminiMaitra is a smash hit and the actor is currently filming “Projapoti” with MithunChakraborty.

The actor is also preparing for the release of “Kacher Manush” during Durga Puja with Prosenjit Chatterjee.
