In fact, Bengali superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee who plays a political leader in Dibakar Banerjee’s Shanghai, dies almost a dozen deaths, literally. “In the film, I get killed 11 times- every time in a different mode, with a different pattern, and at a different place”, says Prosenjit, who was last seen in Bollywood over two decades ago in Veerta (1991).

He further explains, “Actually, the film shows 11 people who have seen me getting murdered and what they explain to the police are independent incidences. So I had to shoot the death sequences according to each person’s version. It was a fresh experience, but quite horrific.”
