Actor Chandan Roy Sanyal revamped his presence in the digital scene as the streaming boom caught on with the entertainment industry in India. The versatile powerhouse is now on the receiving end of an outpour of rave reviews for his performance in Spotlight, which is an episode in Vasan Bala’s ‘Ray’ (2021).
Basking in the success of Prakash Jha’s ‘Ashram’ (2020), Chandan Roy Sanyal has positioned himself as a credible performer with his portrayal as Roby, a superstar’s (played by Harshvardhan Kapoor) manager. After the unanimous appreciation he received for the portrayal of Bhopa Swami in the Prakash Jha directorial, the critics have showered praises on his effortless performance that has been one of the prime highlights of the Vasan Bala directorial. Proving his range as an actor, Chandan has been reviewed to have done full justice to the role of a comic and worldly wise manager, who has Kapoor’s back.
Grateful to have been appreciated for the role, Chandan says, “It is amazing and superbly rewarding to be reviewed so kindly. ‘Ray’ is Vasan Bala’s tribute to the cinematic genius – Satyajit Ray. His work has inspired me much before I decided I would act for a living. I’m honoured to have contributed to Bala’s retelling of stories by ‘Ray’. Being part of the celebration of his work is a dream come true for any actor.”
