Bengali Film Professor Shanku O El Dorado



First ever film on Satyajit Ray's creation Professor Shanku will be released in 2019 Christmas. The film is ‘Professor Shanku O El Dorado’ where Dhritiam Chatterjee plays the titular character of Professor Shanku, Subhasish Mukhopadhyay will be seen as Nokurbabu. 

Director Sandip Ray said, “This is the first time we are bringing my father’s creation Professor Shanku alive on screen and I’m very excited about the same. Shanku is a larger than life literary character that is known across the world and I’m hoping that the audience will love the film as much as they loved literary Shanku.”

Dhritiman Chatterjee said “The main problem was to adjust Shonku to the modern world as time and surroundings of Shonku have changed completely. I have to play the character keeping in mind every minute detail mentioned in the original stories. But I am also thankful to Sandip Ray for giving me the opportunity to enact such an iconic character.” 

‘Professor Shanku O El Dorado’ also stars American actors Paolo Ricardo Xavier, Roney Facchini and Fernando Borges De Souza among others.
