Sandip Ray’s Much-Anticipated Feluda Film Hatyapuri And New Feluda

 Sandip Ray has started his new Feluda film Hatyapuri. The detective thriller introduces Indraneil Sengupta as the Bengali sleuth, while Ayush Das and Abhijit Guha will be seen as  Topse and Jatayu, respectively.

Sandip Ray’s last Feluda film ‘Double Feluda’ was made in 2016 with Sabyasachi Chakraborty playing the detective for the last time. 

“Hatyapuri revolves around a murder mystery in Puri, a place my father always loved to visit. This film has some interesting twists, while the supporting characters also play key roles in the narrative," shared Sandip Ray.

‘Hatyapuri’ will also see Paran Bandopadhyay, Subhasish Mukherjee, Saheb Chatterjee and Bharat Kaul in important roles. Paran Bandopadhyay has appeared in all of Sandip Ray’s Feluda directorials since ‘Bombaiyer Bombete’ (2003) and the director wanted to rope in all those actors who have acted in his previous Feluda films.

Abhijit Guha playing Lalmohan Ganguly aka Jatayu is another important decision. Satyajit Ray himself didn’t make any Feluda films when he couldn’t find a suitable actor for Jatayu after Santosh Dutta's death. Incidentally, Bibhu Bhattacharya, who played the iconic character in Sandip Ray's films, also passed away in 2011.

“Feluda films without Jatayu became the main focus and we were used to it but then my wife (Lalita Ray) urged me to have a look at Abhijit for the role. We all have watched his acting for years, and her suggestion somehow gave me the confidence to choose him as Jatayu,” Sandip Ray said.
