Abhijatrik will recreate the vintage Kolkata of pre-independence era


If you are not living under the rock, by far you know that Apu the iconic character of Satyajit Ray’s "Apu Trilogy" is all set to make a comeback in Subhrajit Mitra’s period film Avijatrik - The Wanderlust of Apu. Arjun Chakrabarty will be seen the role of Apu. This time, Apu will relive his childhood through the eyes of his son, visiting Benaras and his village Nischindipur. The film has already started rolling.  The filmmaker is all set to recreate the vintage Kolkata in black and white. "I am also putting the film in a global context and hence the BBC’s footage of Churchill announcing World War 2 will also be there,” says Subhrajit.
