Sourav Ganguly was back on 22 yards!

Team 22 Yards had a special guest at their Navami morning shoot. Sourav Ganguly. Dada dropped by at the Barisha Players Corner pandal in his para for a quick meet-and-greet with the film’s cast and crew, which includes television heart-throb Barun Sobti. “I am a cricket fanatic and I am his fan. He was very sweet and accommodating and made sure everybody was comfortable,” Barun told t2. So, what did they talk about? “It was pretty loud for a conversation. We had to literally sit on each other’s shoulders (picture above right),” smiled Barun. Pictures: Kanai Sahoo.

22 Yards director Mitali Ghoshal (left) was “sceptical” whether she’d be able to pull off a Durga Puja shoot. “It was challenging. I am thankful to both Dada and the Kalighat Milan Samiti (located in Mamata Banerjee’s neighbourhood, where they shot an evening sequence) puja organisers for helping us a lot. Ron (Barun’s character in the film) is not in the best of moods — the sequences we shot capture him in the pandals, trying to relive his childhood Puja days,” said Mitali. 22 Yards, in which Barun plays a sports agent, is produced by MS Productions.
