Working in Bollywood for regional industry actor actresses is not a new trend. But this time there’s a greater hike. Jishu Sengupta, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Paoli Dam, Swastika Mukherjee, Tota Raychoudhuri, Saswata Chatterjee, Ritabhari Chakraborty are very regular in Bollywood. But others like Anirban Bhattacharya, Rukmini Maitra, Abir Chatterjee are following in their footsteps too. Even ‘I am the industry’ Prasenjit Chatterjee is also on the list.

Not only actors director Srijit Mukherji, Birsa Dasgupta, Debalay Bhattacharya Churni Ganguly are also setting their milestone in Mumbai. Though Churni Ganguly has worked in Bollywood for years, this time she is going to play a role in Karan Johar’s film. After the Netflix series ‘Ray’, he is in Mumbai for his next work “Sabbash Mithu” (Mitali Raj’s biopic). Though ‘Ray has gotten a mixed review though producer trusts Srijit Mukherji. Mahendra Soni tweeted “whole Tollywood is going to Mumbai, thinking to shift too”. Churni Ganguly replied back “you didn’t care that’s why this is the situation”.

Bengali cinema lovers are actually happy to see their favorite actors at the national level. The industry is removing the language boundaries. If viewers can shift their views to their mother tongue to any of the languages why do actors get bounded? But is this the original cause? Many people saying that for pandemic situations big-budget cinemas are stuck for a long time. And maximum Bengali OTT contents are rudely criticized for the presentation.

Probably Tollywood actors have found another way to work and light up themselves with different characters and roles. Even it is said that Tollywood actors are low in budget, and cheaper than Bollywood actors. On the contrary Tollywood actors are paid better in Bollywood. So this mutual benefit may be a cause of migration. Some are saying about the bad politics here in Tollywood is a prime reason for going to Bombay. Jishu Sengupta has worked in the Tamil, Malayalam industry too. Anirban Bhattacharya has completed his outdoor shooting in Norway with Rani Mukherjee. Abir is going to step into Bollywood.
