He made women go weak in the knees with his good looks back in 2001. Priyanshu Chatternjee became an overnight sensation post his Bollywood debut Tum Bin and there was no looking back for the actor. But despite a string of films, Priyanshu was lost in the new crop of actors over the period of time.
In fact, the 44-year-old actor did not shy away from trying in hands in Bengali films. And after a few misses in Bollywood in the last few years, Priyanshu is ready to strike back with his upcoming film Mirza Juliet.
And the actor looks almost unrecognisable as he sports a beard and crew cut for the film.
Shot in Varanasi and Allahabad, Mirza Juliet will show Priyanshu in a new avatar.
"The language, milieu and the characters are so wonderfully dramatic and colourful. I have not done any film in this space before," he told Mid-Day.
