Son of Joy Mukherjee, Sujoy Mukherjee has found his true calling in cinema | Hindi Movie News

Sujoy Mukherjee, actor and filmmaker and son of former star Joy Mukherjee, says he found his true calling as a filmmaker with CH Muhammed. Sujoy, whose 2019 short film Ab Mujhe Udnaa Hai was widely acclaimed, says, “I want to make films that feature realistic characters that are inspired by real life and ideals that have specific motivational traits for humanity and which connect people with each other. I would consider telling it using plots, genres, themes, cinematography, etc. and not just the character alone. But that can only happen with a powerful script where a filmmaker’s voice shines through the narrative, using the imagination but keeping the entertainment value at the same time. I’m lucky that my short film did well and now I’m looking forward to making a feature film very soon.

The actor, whose father Joy Mukherjee became one of the main heroes of Hindi films, also admits that if he became a filmmaker, it does not mean that he intends to stop acting. “I love making movies, but that doesn’t mean I quit acting,” says Sujoy who has starred in movies like Mehboob Mere Mehboob, Hum Hain Kamal Ke and Pyar Pyar. He adds, “I’m not someone who likes or believes in limitation. I’m always eager to play challenging and promising roles.”
