Soumitra Chatterjee or Soumitra Chattopadhyay O.L.H. is an Indian film and stage actor and poet. He is best known for his collaborations with Oscar-winning film director Satyajit Ray, with whom he worked in fourteen films, and his constant comparison with the Bengali cinema screen idol Uttam Kumar, his contemporary leading man of the 1960s and 1970s.
Whether it is Amitabh Bachchan, Kamal Haasan, Aamir Khan, Govinda or Jaaved Jaffrey, among many actors that Hindi cinema lovers have seen, all of them have relished doing drag acts, in "Laawaris", "Chachi 420", "Baazi", "Aunty No. 1", or "Paying Guest" respectively. The actor who did it long before such an act was considered cool was Bishwajit in the 1966 comedy, Biwi Aur Makaan. He followed it up a couple of years later in the evergreen hit song "Kajra mohabbatwala" of the 1968 film "Kismat".
National award-winning filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh, after making his mark with "Kahaani" and "Badla", is stepping into the world of web series with his upcoming show, Typewriter.
