BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: We know Dev had undergone football training sessions with none other than Bhaichung Bhutia to get into the skin of his character Nagendra Prasad Sarbadhikari- the Father of Indian Football- for Dhrubo Banerjee’s epic Bengali film Golondaaz.
And though it has been quite sometime since Dev had started shooting for the film in Kolkata’s Maidan area, the look of the actor was kept under wraps. However, on Friday the makers took to social media to reveal the look of Dev as Nagendra, who can be seen showing off his dribbling skills in one of the scenes from the period sports drama.

No sooner the look was unveiled than Dev’s fans went berserk. Not many know Nagendra was the founder of many sports clubs in Kolkata. The film, which also stars Ishaa Saha, Anirban Bhattacharya, Indrasish Ray and Srikanta Acharya, marks the return of Dev to SVF after 2017 (Amazon Obhijaan). The film will hit the theatres in mid-August.
