On celebrating his 50th birthday, Shiboprosad Mukherjee said, “Today is very special for me. I will spend quality time with the family, my wife, mother and sisters. In the first half, It will be a typical Bengali celebration where I will be having 5 different kinds of fritters and payasam. In the second half, I will be celebrating with the Windows team and Nandita Roy with whom I share most of my time on the shooting floor. It’s a small gathering, there will be just those without whom my journey of life would have been incomplete.” About his best birthday gift, he said, “I have two releases coming up this year — Aamar Boss and Bohurupi and they the best gifts to me by Didi (Nandita Roy).”
