Tungabhadrar Teere Shelved for Now: Srijit

Kolkata: Filmmaker Srijit Mukherjee, who was working on an adaptation of Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay’s popular historical novel Tungabhadrar Teere for the big screen, has shelved the project for the time being.

Speaking to the media on the sidelines of an event in the city today, Srijit said, “I read the first eight pages of the story and found that it requires a big infrastructure to shoot the film which is presently not available in Bengal.”

Tungabhadrar Teere was published in 1965.

“You can’t make a ₹2 crore film look like a ₹200 crore product. You can go to a certain extent but after that the finances simply doesn’t permit,” the director said, adding that Mumbai studios are often left surprised when they see what we can output at a fraction of a cost of what they make in Bollywood.
