Dev is a member of the All India Trinamool Congress. He is also a Member of Parliament in the Lok Sabha and has represented Ghatal constituency since 2014. During an appearance on Dance Dance Junior Season 3, Dev clarified that he would not comment on anything related to Partha Chatterjee and his colleague Arpita. The actor feels that anything can go against him or for him.
When asked about the SSC scam, ETimes quoted Dev as saying, “Let me be clear. My name is not Partha Chattopadhyay, nor is Arpita (Mukherjee). If you get a chance, definitely ask them these questions. I don’t want to say anything about it because either it will go against them or for them. Also, I don’t want to comment on things I don’t know or understand.
Talking about his share of responsibilities as an actor and a politician at the same time, Dev said, “Look, I have always been careful about one thing. I will not do anything that will tarnish the image of my party. This is my responsibility. What others are doing is not my responsibility. So my thoughts are clear- my work, my behavior, whatever I do can never harm my close ones, my colleagues or my family. This is my responsibility. Has anyone asked me before what they are doing? No, so it’s not my job to comment about them. I’m happy with what I’m doing.”
Dev made his debut in the Bengali film industry with Agni Shapath. He was last seen this year in filmmaker Rahul Mukherjee’s film Kismat. He will next act in Kacher Manush, which will be the 40th film of his acting career.
