“When you have shades of Godfather and Mahabharata in one film, you get Senapati. This is an original story which showcases the rise and fall and rise of a family. This is a two part biopic which will be shot in this year only” said the excited director.
The story of the film is about the Senapatis. Every year 25th April is celebrated with much pomp and joy as that is Don Deben Senapati’s birthday. His children namely Rupen and Brijen would come to be with their father, who is credited with redefining organized crime in Eastern India. This is also the time when rivals and global adversaries would be after this untouchable family of Senapatis. When the Don is shot down on his 80th birthday by unknown assassins, Ruben Senapati takes charge and soon Kolkata becomes the battlefield of organized crime.
Abhinav Shukla who is making his Bengali film debut with this film mentioned that he had been to the city before for shooting ads. “My first TVC was shot in Kolkata (the Wild Stone deodorant). The fact that I am doing a Bengali film is like life coming to a full circle. Kolkata has been auspicious for me. I remember the first time he called me up for doing a film. I had not met him then. He then called me up a year later. And then when he asked me whether I will be doing the film, I said Yes instantly” said the handsome actor.
The film will see Uttam Kumar’s and Soumitra Chatterjee’s grandsons namely Ranodeep Bose and Gaurab Chatterjee coming together. It also has Suchitra Sen’s granddaughter Riya Sen alongside them.
The cast consists of Abhinav Shukla (Rupen), Ranodeep Bose (Brijen), Barun Chanda (Deben), Bobby Roy (Barin), Riya Sen (Tina), Rupsha Guha Banerjee (Mira), Subrat Dutt (Balraj), Indrashish Roy (Vishnu), Gaurab Chatterjee (Shibaji Rao), Rana Mitra (RP), Kaushik Mitra (Lawyer) and others.
