Bob 'Saswata' Biswas As Moneylender?

If you love, like or scare of Bob Biswas, you must know who is the dude acted as Bob - he is none other than Saswata Chatterjee, Apu-da of Bengali film industry.

After this contract killer + LIC agent dual role in Kahaani, Saswata is turning into moneylender (mahajan) in Manoj Michigan’s comedy Damadol. 

I got this pic of Bob's new avatar on Telegraph India T2 (March 28, 2012 Edition). 
The article was published in a T2 with Saswata's photo, while the website does not showcase him. Anyway I grabbed his new avatar from e-paper version of Telegraph (which is damn slow, often non-responsive to my mouse clicks and so on!)

Well this is the actual content from Telegraph:

Rajdeep, Samadarshi, Shaheb Bhattacherjee and Saswata Chatterjee in Manoj Michigan’s comedy Damadol. Though Damadol rolls on the floors in mid-April, the team has done a look-test and photoshoot (above). “Damadol is my tribute to Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Golmaal. The film is a situational comedy and all hell breaks loose when one of the characters tries to fix the love life of the other,” says Manoj whose debut was the Swastika-starrer Hello Kolkata in 2008. Shaheb plays an IT professional desperate to get married, Samadarshi a wannabe filmmaker and Rajdeep a small-time businessman. Saswata — basking in the afterglow of Bob Kahaani Biswas — plays a small-time moneylender.

It would be great to see him scary again! But I guess this is a funny role for Apu da.
