Actress Manali Manisha Dey is in awe of the child actor Soumyadipta Saha, who plays the titular role in Googly. Manali, who has acted with Soumyadipta before in a daily soap, suggested his name to her beau director Abhimanyu Mukherjee. “I thought he’d a perfect fit and promptly told Abhimanyu about him. In fact, he has the complexion of Srabanti and also resembles Soham in many ways; I thought he would look like their on-screen son,” says Manali. Soumyadipta is a foody and he would call her Manu, she remembered.
