Director Sujoy Ghosh says he will make his future Bengali films, in short, digital format only and will take thespian Soumitra Chatterjee again for his next venture. Sujoy, who was asked why he was not making films in Bengali, told PTI, “Didn’t I make Ahalya? Whatever film (in Bangla) I make in future will be in that format (short and on you tube) only as that medium has lots of prospects.
“And would like to work with Soumitra Chatterjee once more in that future project,” said the director. Sujoy brought Kolkata alive in “Kahaani” and also shot extensively in the city and in Bengal for “Kahaani 2”.

He, however, does not believe he set the trend for present day Bollywood directors to make Kolkata a destination location.
“All I can say is that I needed Kolkata as the location of my film – the city where I was born and which fascinates me with changes over the years. Can’t say why others are choosing the city as well,” he said.
“But the more they come, the more it will do good (for the city),” he added. Sujoy was present at the trailer launch of Bengali film “Kuheli” starring actor friend Kaushik Sen. Showering praise on filmmakers like Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury (Tony) and Srijit Mukherjee for imparting Bengali sensitivity, he said “While Tony has already made good impact with ‘Pink’ in the country, we are awaiting Srijit’s result (‘Begum Jaan’).”
