Kolkata: 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.
- Prosenjit Chatterjee will play Kakababu in Srijit's film
- The film will be based on the exploits Kakababu
- The shooting for his film will begin in May-June 2017
The National Award-winning director, now busy with the post-production work of Hindi film Begum Jaan starring Vidya Balan, confirmed that Paharchuray Atonko, 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 snowclad mountains in Europe.
Prosenjit Chatterjee, who played Kakababu in Mishawr Rawhoshyo (2013), will again play the adventurer in the film.
