Anurag Basu Plays A Part In Ludo

Anurag Basu’s delightful  ensemble  cast in Ludo is an acting paradise. But tucked away  in the  film’s melee of talent and charisma is  the director himself,  playing the  film’s sutradhar who  compares  life to a game  of ,you guessed it, ludo.

Basu’s cameo has been  kept a  secret  so far.   But it’s now out that he  is indeed  a part of  vast cast in Ludo in a very special  role.

Interestingly this is  not Anurag Basu’s first  foray into acting. He had also played a pivotal part in Onir’s I  Am in 2010  . His  character was named after him,  Dr Anurag Basu.

What is it that lures filmmakers to the other side of the camera? Guru Dutt never wanted to act. When Dilip Kumat stepped out of Pyasa at the last minute  the director donned the actor’s role…and the rest is history. Now of course there is an avalanche of directors who take to acting mainly to experience what it feels like from the other side.
