Acclaimed Bengali filmmaker Srijit Mukherjee will soon be making first Bengali 3D film. It 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.
