Sujoy Ghosh announces next film, an adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore’s Kabuliwala
Sujoy will write, direct and jointly produce the period drama set in the UK
Miraj Creations has joined hands with AVMA Media to produce two Hindi feature films. The first of the two projects, titled Uma, will be directed by debutant Tathagata Singha and creatively produced by Sujoy Ghosh.
Sujoy will himself write, direct and jointly produce the second project in the line-up, a big-screen adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore’s Bengali short story, Kabuliwala. It will be a period drama set in the UK. Both films will go on floors next year.
Sujoy Ghosh shares, “Both these films are very exciting. Kabuliwala, in particular, has been a dream project for me, and now, thanks to Miraj and AVMA, I can finally adapt the story for the screen.”
Mantraraj Paliwal, Vice Chairman, Miraj Group, says, “We find ourselves in a great phase, and are delighted to partner with a master filmmaker like Sujoy Ghosh, to bring to life his creative vision. Staying committed to producing quality film products, Miraj Group will always strive to collaborate with top talent in the entertainment business. We are excited about our association with AVMA Media on these two films.”
Avishek Ghosh of AVMA Media says, “We are thrilled with this association with Miraj and are looking forward to bringing two wonderful stories on screen. The audience is in for a treat.”
