Talking about how the landscape of cinemas has changed over the years, Chakraborty says that the whole fascination about playing the lead role is no longer a priority for him as he just wants to play memorable characters.
“Now we have those two-three big heroes. They are superstars and they have a different level. We can’t compete with them. But apart from them, the other actors are all experimenting. People like me are being given the opportunity to experiment. The hero has become the common man and no longer a superhero. That is the best things about cinema right now, you can challenge yourself with many unique roles. We are no more obsessed with playing the hero,” he says.

I won’t say that this is the 2.0 version but I will just say that people will see me in a different light. Cinema today has changed so that change is reflecting in the offers coming my way,” he ends.
