Filmmaker Srijit To Direct First Bengali 3D Film


Kolkata: Acclaimed filmmaker Srijit Mukherjee is all set to make first Bengali 3D film which is based on the exploits of a popular fictional character ‘Kakababu’ by late writer Sunil Gangopadhyay.

The national award-winning director, now busy with the post-production work of the Vidya Balan-starrer Hindi film “Begum Jaan”, confirmed that “Paharchuray Atonko’ (terror on hill top), his next Bengali film, will be made in 3D.

He said that the pre-production work of the film would start after the release of ‘Zulfiqar’ (re-adaptation of Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra) during the Puja. He said that he had been thinking about making a 3D film for some time which would have a good content backed by technical polish for today’s tech-savvy young audience.

“I want to try my hand at different subjects as a director. In between shots we are also doing research on 3D technology’s latest trends,” he said. The shooting is expected to begin in May-June next year and the location would include snow-clad mountains in Europe. Prosenjit Chatterjee, who had essayed ‘Kakababu’ in Mishawr Rawhoshyo (2013), will again don the hat of an adventurer in the film.
