Kolkata: Veteran filmmaker Sandip Ray will bring to celluloid Chhinnamastar Abhishap as the next Feluda film, based on a novel of the same name by author-filmmaker Satyajit Ray.
Sabyasachi Chakraborty, in all probability, will reprise his role as the fictional detective in the film.
Speaking on the sidelines of an event in the city today, Sandip Ray said, “I will begin writing the film after I finish Professor Shonku O El Dorado.”
Chhinnamastar Abhishap will be produced by SVF.
Sandip Ray said, “Please let me know if you find a new Jatayu.”
Lalmohan Ganguly aka Jatayu is a popular pulp fiction author and one of the most important characters in almost all Feluda stories. He has been immortalised on screen by Santosh Dutta who played the role in Sonar Kella (1974) and Joy Baba Felunath (1979). After Dutta’s death, Jatayu was played by Bibhu Bhattacharya on the big screen.
Chhinnamastar Abhishap is likely to release in 2019.
