Milind dons the villain’s hat again


Milind Gunaji

Veteran actor Milind Gunaji is set to surprise the audience with the short film, Shatika – The Undraped, directed by debutante Sritama Dutta. The film also stars Susmita Mukherjee, Harry Josh and  Swagata Naik. Interestingly, Milind, who has played the villain in a number of movies, once again plays a grey character in the short film. Director Sritama met Milind on the sets of Kamasutra, where she was the Associate Director. She had discussed Shatika’s story with Milind and expressed her eagerness to direct a short with him. Milind, impressed with Sritama on the sets, assured her that he would be part of her independent project.

Sritama later approached the actor for the film, and he readily accepted the offer. The actor was touched by the subject and there was no way he would say no since he supports women empowerment. Praising Milind, Sritama says, “On the sets of Kamasutra, when I raised the idea of my short to Milind ji, he showed the enthusiasm and yearning to contribute to the society through any medium possible and this encouraged me to have him on board. He is apt for the character he is playing in the film and we are pleased to have such a talented actor playing a pivotal role in Shatika.”

Says Milind, “Shatika is an eye-opener for the society as it not only entertains, but also  spreads awareness about issues related to women empowerment and HIV. It was an absolute honour working with the talented Sritama and being a part of her project.”
