Recent blockbusters of the director duo are Prakton, Posto, Hami, Bela Seshe and latest Dussehra release Manojder Adbhut Bari.

While I have made few commercial and remakes but in future, I will make films for which I will be proud even after ten years. I never made films for money nor I am after it today. Creative satisfaction and opportunity to local talents is our main objective. I am grateful to Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy for giving me such a chance of association. We are all excited for great creative days ahead not only in Bengal but also in Odisha as well as in Bollywood’ : said Parija with a wink in his eyes without revealing his plans for Odisha.
