Subhraji Maitra's much-awaited directorial Avijatrik has been selected in the prestigious Indian Panorama section of the 51st International Film Festival (IFFI). The film is based on the extended part of Aparajito which wasn't a part of Satyajit Ray's Apu Trilogy. An elated Arjun Chakraborty, who plays Apu, says, "I am overjoyed - more for the film than myself. The entire team has worked extremely hard to make Avijatrik come to life. The research and scripting are unbelievable, so is the cinematography." He thanked the makers for trusting him. "It would be any actor’s dream to play Apu and I was the fortunate one in this case,” he added.
