Satyajit Ray's director son to bring Feluda Professor Shanku in same film

    Kolkata, Oct 22 (PTI) Legendary filmmaker Satyajit
Ray's son Sandip Ray has decided to bring the maestro's
immortal characters 'Feluda' and 'Professor Shanku' in one
film, albeit in two parts.
    The two parts of the film will hit the screens
separately next year on the occasion of Ray's birth centenary,
his filmmaker son said on Thursday.
    "There will be two different stories, which I am yet
to decide. Keeping in mind the total duration of the film, I
will choose from immensely popular short stories," Ray told
    The legend's son had last year brought scientist
Professor Shanku to the silver screen for the first time in
'Professor Shanku O El Dorado' flick and had earlier directed
several movies on detective Feluda.
    Casting and the location are yet to be finalised and
pre-production work for the untitled film has just started,
Ray said.
    "Till date, I have made Feluda and Shanku as different
contents. But, bringing them together in a single film will be
challenging. I hope it will remain etched in the memories of
the audience for a long time," he said.
    Film producer Mahendra Soni hoped to release the movie
in May next year. Satyajit Ray's birthday falls on May 2. PTI
